iTind for Enlarged Prostate
What is iTind?
The iTind treatment is a simple procedure, performed in our offices by one of our board-certified urologists, where the patient is sent home the same day. During the 5 to 7-day treatment, the iTind slowly expands and exerts gentle pressure at three precise points to widen the prostatic urethra opening through which urine can now flow. After 5 to 7 days, the device is completely removed in our office. Clinical trials have shown that the newly reshaped prostate will continue to provide long-lasting relief of BPH symptoms.
The iTind procedure reshapes the anatomy of the prostatic urethra, gently creating a wider opening for urine to flow freely, without burning or cutting out tissue, and without leaving behind a permanent implant. The treatment is straightforward, does not require overnight hospitalization, and has none of the side effects associated with prescription medication.
