Gat Goren Method for treatment of enlarged prostate gland (BPH)

The Gat Goren Method for Treatment of Enlarged Prostate

What is the Problem?

Benign prostatic hyperplasia (enlarged prostate – BPH) is one of the most common medical problems suffered by men.  Prostate enlargement is observed in around 40% of men in their 50s, and in around 60% of men in their 60s.  In ages of 70 and above, the phenomenon is even more common.

An enlarged prostate impedes quality of life, from disturbance to sleep due to a frequent need to urinate during the night (nocturia) to urgent hospitalization due to urinary  retention  (inability to urinate).

Despite the fact that millions of men around the world suffer from this problem, many men do not treat it.  This is because almost all of the conventional surgical treatments that treat directly the prostate offered at present involve side effects with serious consequences, such as impotence or urinary incontinence.

What is the New Treatment?

After many years of research, Dr. Yigal Gat and Dr. Menachem Goren have  found the origin for the evolution of prostate enlargement.  In articles published around the world, they reported on newly found route of testosterone to reach the prostate in  high concentration directly from the testes. The results of this research led them to develop a new method of treating the problem of enlarged prostate, without the well-known side effects.

The Gat Goren method for treating enlarged prostate is based on a smart and unique catheterization technique performed under local anesthesia only, in a procedure that takes around two hours.  During the procedure, the entire network of malfunction veins that divert ("illegally") the flow of testosterone into the prostate is located and treated.  Testosterone is the known factor in medicine that control the volume of the prostate gland. High concentration (intraprostatic) increases prostate volume low concentration  decreases prostate volume. The treatment causes an improvement in the symptoms, and within weeks to few months later, a reduction in the size of the prostate can already be measured.  Many patients who have undergone the treatment report a change in their quality of life after the first month.

This method was described by the journal Andrologia as a far-reaching development (see under articles)
