Dr. James Meaglia Performs the First UroLift® Cases in Orange County: Sexual Dysfunction No Longer Inevitable When Treating Enlarged Prostate.
LAGUNA HILLS, Calif. (April 13, 2015) – Dr. James Meaglia of Orange County Urology Associates (OCUA) has performed the first surgical cases of UroLift® in Orange County. UroLift is a new treatment option for benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), which is also known as an enlarged prostate. One in four men experience symptoms of an enlarged prostate by the age of 55, and that rate increases to 90 percent in men over the age of 70.
The new, minimally invasive UroLift is an outpatient surgical procedure approved by the FDA in the United States for the treatment of BPH that provides total preservation of sexual function.
“I have now done 15 surgical cases using the new UroLift surgical system for treating enlarged prostate, and couldn’t be more pleased with the patient and clinical outcomes,” Dr. Meaglia said. “I look forward to other urologic surgeons at Orange County Urology quickly adopting use of this new treatment system for surgical management of BPH.”
