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 Dan, a patient who talks about his life before and after treatment for BPH and the overall journey he went on to find relief. Our second guest is Dr. Sankar Kausik, a urologist at Chesapeake Urology who talks about how other's may relate to Dan's journey before and after treatment. The goal of this podcast is to share a patient's story about their BPH journey to help people identify with the issue and to seek advice of a urologist.
