Prostate Artery Embolization FAQs
Prostate Artery Embolization (PAE) is safe, effective, and a minimally invasive treatment option for men with BPH. Like other minimally invasive procedures, PAE offers several advantages over traditional surgery. The procedure is performed by a specially trained, board-certified interventional radiologist, using advanced techniques for treatment. Before you and your doctor decide on the right treatment for you, learn more with our list of frequently asked questions.
IPSS Screening Assessment
The International Prostate Symptom Score (IPSS) is a seven-question written screening tool used to evaluate the severity of lower urinary tract symptoms related to BPH. The questions are assigned points from 0 to 5. Therefore, the total score can range from 0 to 35 — asymptomatic to very symptomatic. Based on your results, one of our affiliated physicians will provide an accurate diagnosis and determine the most appropriate treatment path. Take the IPSS assessment below to get started.
