Expedited BPH Evaluations

In an effort to maximize efficiency (for both you and us) we will begin to offer our BPH Evaluation on the day of your initial consultation. You may have already received this letter via email, and reviewing may help you decide that you’d like to move this process forward (historically after the initial consult we would schedule the Evaluation weeks later, and only then could we consider UroLift, of course within the parameters of insurance coverage details, so three required visits); this approach often pushed UroLift off for 6-8 weeks from the initial consult, and has been very cumbersome for my patients who travel hours to get to SLC.

My goal is not to waste your time, and to move your care forward at a more desirable pace, without sacrificing quality. This approach is OPTIONAL and on some days may not be possible. But if you like the idea of this expedited approach please call 801-993-1800 and ask for Lori who can try to accommodate your preference.

I have seen Dr. Gange for a number of years and developed the typical symptoms associated with an enlarged prostate. During my annual urologist visit, Dr. Gange laid out my options. After doing some personal research, I elected to have the Urolift procedure performed by Dr. Gange on an outpatient basis.

The procedure was uncomfortable but not particularly painful compared to other surgeries I have had. Recovery was relatively quick and I was back at work after two days of rest.

I did experience some significant discomfort associated with urination but was counseled that I was not drinking enough water. Once I increased my consumption of water, most of the discomfort went away and I was back to normal after about two weeks.

In the wake of the surgery, the urgency to urinate has gone away. The interval between trips to the bathroom has lengthened significantly such that I usually get up to urinate only once each night and sometimes not at all.

Having talked with others who have had more drastic prostate surgery, I feel that the Urolift procedure was much less stressful and the results were as hoped for.
