CareMount Medical’s Urology Department Among the First in the Region to Introduce the UroLift® System and the UroNav Fusion Biopsy System
Chappaqua, New York—March 27, 2018—CareMount Medical, P.C., the largest independent multispecialty medical group in New York State, announces two new state-of-the-art procedures, the UroLift® System and the UroNav Fusion Biopsy System, for male patients. CareMount Medical is leading the way to offer these minimally invasive techniques close to home for patients in the Hudson Valley.
“CareMount is a leader in urological technology providing sought-after clinical solutions with these new procedures,” said Scott D. Hayworth, MD FACOG, President and CEO at CareMount Medical. “Our highly-qualified physicians can deliver faster recovery, less scarring, less pain, and a rapid return to normal activities for our male patients.”
The UroLift System is designed to relieve symptoms caused by an enlarged prostate, while preserving sexual function. It is the first permanent implant to treat symptoms due to urinary outflow obstruction secondary to benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) in men 50 years of age or older. Cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in 2013, the permanent implants, delivered during a minimally-invasive procedure, act like window curtain tie-backs to hold the lobes of an enlarged prostate open.
“The UroLift System is an excellent alternative to medication as it does not have any of the negative side effects, such as sexual dysfunction, associated with prescribed pills,” said Warren D. Bromberg, MD FACS, a Board-Certified Urologist and Urology Department Chair at CareMount Medical, and Medical Director of the Prostate Program at the Cancer and Wellness Center of Northern Westchester Hospital. “I am proud to be part of a medical group that is at the forefront of advanced technology. With this technique, patients will see a rapid increase in symptom relief and overall improved quality of life after the procedure, all with the convenience of staying close to home.”
The UroNav Fusion Biopsy System is an advanced, new MRI solution for targeted biopsy of the prostate. UroNav fuses pre-biopsy MRI images of the prostate with ultrasound-guided biopsy images in real time, for excellent views of the prostate and suspicious lesions. It is designed to help visualize, assess, target and track suspicious areas in the prostate.
“UroNav brings the power of MRI to the Urology suite as prostate and lesion data from Radiology are quickly and easily transferred for review and target identification. This critical exchange of diagnostic information fosters enhanced collaboration between Radiology and Urology in the assessment and biopsy of suspicious prostate lesions,” added Dr. Bromberg.
