On this episode we had the honor of speaking with two guests on the topic of Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia, or BPH. Our first guest is Bob, a patient who details his experience with BPH and the treatment option that worked for him. Our second guest is Dr. Bilal Chughtai, a urologist at Weill Cornell Medical College who gives a high-level overview of treatment options for men with BPH. The goal of this podcast is to share a patient story of his experience, provide patients, partners and caregivers information on diagnosing and treating BPH and highlight key questions patients may have for their doctor.
Stay tuned at the end of this episode for an “Ask the Experts” segment, where Bob will get to ask Dr. Ristau some questions from a patient’s perspective.
