Associated Urological Specialists announced today that Dr. Aaron Berger has reached another rare and important achievement in urology. On Tuesday, November 17, 2020 he completed his 300th UroLift System procedure, joining an elite group of surgeons to reach this impressive mark.
Dr. Aaron Berger is the 77th UroLift surgeon in the world to achieve this milestone and the second in the state of Illinois. Dr. Berger has also been designated as a UroLift Center of Excellence, another rare distinction.
UroLift is a proven, minimally invasive technology to treat men suffering from symptoms associated with BPH (Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia). BPH is a condition in which a man’s prostate enlarges and squeezes the urethra, causing frustrating symptoms such as frequent or urgent urination, a weak or interrupted urine stream, and the need to get up several times a night to urinate. It affects about 50% of men by age 60, and up to 90% of men by age 85.
Dr. Aaron Berger has also been designated as a UroLift Center of Excellence, another rare distinction. With five of their 17 Board-Certified urologists earning an important designation from Urolift®, Associated Urological Specialists now have more Centers of Excellence than any other urology practice in the entire Midwest.
Dr. Aaron Berger, Dr. Michael Herzog, Dr. Mark Lyon and Dr. Ike Oguejiofor and Dr. Rajesh Patel all earned the top distinction. These five doctors have offices in Chicago Ridge, Orland Park and Evergreen Park, IL. However, Associated Urological Specialists (AUS) have 8 different locations to make an appointment. All of which provide diagnosis and treatment for patients with enlarged prostates or BPH.
Associated Urology Specialists continues as the leader in BPH treatments with more Centers of Excellence than any other urology practice in the entire Midwest.
Over 40 million men in the United States are affected by BPH, a condition that occurs when the prostate gland that surrounds the male urethra becomes enlarged with advancing age and begins to obstruct the urinary system. Symptoms of BPH often include interrupted sleep and urinary problems and can cause loss of productivity, depression and decreased quality of life.
