Great experience! Dr. Gange is very knowledgeable and was able to quickly diagnose my problem and recommend a sound plan to get me back to healthy!
Dr. Gange is awesome!! I went to him because I have BPH and the medication I was taking for it made me feel drowsy and kind of sick. Dr. Gange recommended that I consider having the Urolift procedure done. Because I am only 57 years old I wasn’t too sure about it and thought I should wait till I’m in my 60’s, but as time went on and I saw that I can’t live this way anymore, I decided to go ahead and have this procedure done. Dr. Gange was very attentive and is very knowledgeable. He is a problem solver and knows the solution to this problem. He has done over 1000 Urolifts and he knows what he’s doing. He did a great job for me cause I feel great!! It has been three months now and I really am so happy I did this. I don’t have to rush to the bathroom all the time, and I just feel like I used to when I was much younger when I didn’t have to go to the bathroom constantly to empty my bladder. Another huge consideration was that leaving it for later would have ruined my bladder. Many people are not aware of that but BPH eventually hardens the wall of the bladder and can permanently ruin it so, I went ahead in order to save it from that. Anyway, I highly recommend Dr. Gange!
Two months since UroLift by Dr. Gange. So happy I did this. 100% Improvement. I’ve sent three friends there so far. This is a game-changing technology.
I can't tell you how happy I was to find Dr. Steven Gange. Not only is he a great doctor with a great bedside manner, he listened to my issues and my symptoms carefully. He told me about all the options for my BPH, including Urolift. My wife and I discussed it and I decided to go for the Urolift. Dr, Gange explained the procedure very well, then gave me a ton of literature to read up on it. As well as information on what to expect after the procedure. This had to be the best results from a procedure that was so minimally invasive, that I ever have had. It did sting a bit during the procedure but had the option of having "laughing gas" during the whole thing. It stung, but the gas made me not care about it. After a few days of recovery, I started to feel better. After a week, I felt good. By two weeks, I felt like I was 18 again! I wish I had done it a lot sooner. All those years of suffering with BPH. I.E. Weak stream, never able to empty my bladder all the way, and frequent urination. Those are all gone now. My quality of life went up a bunch of points! I am grateful for Dr. Gange and his wonderful procedure that made me feel like myself again.
I recently had the UROLIFT procedure done by Dr Gange and his Staff . They were very profesional and thoughtful and the procedure went very well. I have shown a big improvement in 3 weeks time. I'm grateful to all his staff for their good work. I would recommend them to others.
Prior to completing a "urolift" procedure, Dr. Gange had multiple visits with scrupulous protocols to assess the current condition of my urinary tract system and need for improvement. I was shocked to learn that I had to exert 170 pounds of pressure on my bladder while the normal pressure is 40 pounds. He helped me understand this straining leads to deterioration of the bladder wall. So, I opted for the urolift, which was covered by Aetna, and the results have been outstanding. Twenty years of restricted flow, multiple visits to the toilet at night, and straining all went away. Dr. Gange is a very engaging person who listens and patiently answers questions. I had a suggestion after completing the procedure, which he immediately accepted and implemented into his practice -- I find that very praiseworthy in a doctor who is committed to the highest quality care. I will always be grateful I heard of this procedure and that I completed it. It is remarkable how much better I feel about my health and appreciate Dr. Gange for making himself expert in this very personal, but essential activity in men's daily lives.
Dr. Gange has been great to work with. The urolift was a godsend. Things are so much better now. Would recommend to anyone with an enlarged prostate.
Dr. Gange is exceptionally experienced. If you come upon his resume you gain insight to his contributions towards the latest developments in his field, his love of teaching others what he has learned, and of his dedicated care to improving the lives of his patients. All this highlighted by a devoted skilled staff whose professionalism and personableness helped allay my anxieties of the medical procedures performed by Dr Gange that have elevated my quality of life in my ‘golden’ years.
Four years of prostate urinating problems culminated one Sunday morning (while in church) in the most excruciating pain I had experience to that point. A quick trip to St. Marks emergency...where a catheter insertion finally brought relief! Follow up instructions were to see Dr. Steve Gange "first thing tomorrow morning." I will always be thankful for that instruction. He performed his Urolift 'magic' on me ...and for the first time (in years it seems) urinating now is much as it seemed in my youth. (Sorry there's only 5 Stars to thank him and his staff at his Summit Urology Group)
When my BPH symptoms became so bothersome as to constitute an unbearable annoyance, as were the side affects of prescribed medications, I began to search for another option. Most surgical options had their own undesirable side effects. Even ablation procedures were pretty invasive and required catheterization for an unacceptable period of time. When I discovered the Urolift, it seemed to be the perfect solution, but I found that every practitioner I contacted insisted on performing the procedure under general anesthesia with it’s concomitant intubation and ICU recovery. Not to mention the gross immodesty of the lithotomy position in an operating room full of strangers. Plus, it seemed like unnecessary overkill for a procedure that itself is completed in less than five minutes.
In searching the Internet I came across the name of Dr. Steven Gange who was one of the principal investigators in the clinical trials that lead to FDA approval of the Urolift procedure. I tracked him down and found he was a practicing Urologist in Salt Lake City. I e-mailed him outlining my concerns and he promptly responded explaining that he performs the procedure under local anesthesia exclusively and that the work-up and procedure itself could be handled in his office with complete accommodation of any modesty issues I might have.
I was so impressed, I flew from the East Coast to Salt Lake City, had the qualifying work-up done on Monday, the procedure on Tuesday and was on a plane home Thursday morning. The results were as promised and I couldn’t be more pleased with the entire experience. I highly recommend Dr. Gange and Summit Urology.
