Prostate Artery Embolization is a minimally invasive procedure that treats BPH and other urinary conditions in men. By inserting a catheter into the prostatic arteries, we release embolic particles that block the blood flow to enlarged prostate glands so they shrink. The result is often better than surgery.

WHAT TO EXPECT LEADING UP TO THE PAE PROCEDURE
Need to schedule an evaluation for a PAE procedure at our vascular center in Peoria, Arizona? Prior to your initial consultation, we ask that you allocate all imaging files and medical records that are relevant to your prostate condition. Upon arrival, you can expect a detailed history review followed by a thorough physical exam. If imaging has not been obtained, an ultrasound, bloodwork, a CT scan or MRI will be ordered to fully assess the size and volume of your prostate. During your next visit, we review your imaging findings and discuss the details of BPH Embolization. If you decide that treating BPH with PAE is right for you, then we’ll plan next steps and schedule the procedure at our endovascular surgical center.
