Leaders in Robotic Prostatectomy
Five Valleys Urology was the first practice in Montana to offer robotic-assisted laparoscopic urologic procedures including prostatectomy and our physicians are the most experienced robotic surgeons in the state. We assist in the leadership and continual development of the robotic surgery programs at both Providence Saint Patrick Hospital and Community Medical Center in Missoula.
SpaceOAR protection for radiation patients
Protecting the quality of life for our patients undergoing radiation therapy for prostate cancer, SpaceOAR is an innovative hydrogel spacer. The procedure is done in-office to reduce potential radiation induced side effects by creating space between organs at risk.
Holmium laser enucleation of the prostate (HoLEP) is a laser surgery used to treat blockage of urine flow as a result of benign prostatic hyperplasia. In men with BPH, the prostate gland has become enlarged but is not cancerous. An enlarged prostate can cause several urinary tract symptoms including frequent urination, inability to urinate, difficulty in starting urination, or loss of bladder control.
