    Fairbanks, AK, July 30th, 2020 – Fairbanks Urology is going to begin offering weekend appointments to all of its patients, and they are launching the new offering with a grand opening event on Saturday August 22nd.

    About Fairbanks Urology 
    THE FRONTIER OF UROLOGY, IN THE LAST FRONTIER. 
    FAIRBANKS UROLOGY IS HERE TO HELP UROLOGY PATIENTS LIVE HAPPY AND HEALTHY LIVES THROUGH HEALING, EDUCATION, AND QUALITY CARE. 
     
    Urology has been making great advances in treatment options for symptoms that plague men’s lives as they age. One of the most common conditions we see in our office is Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia, or BPH. BPH is a noncancerous enlargement of the prostate gland. The enlarged prostate often compresses the urinary tube  (urethra), which courses through the center of the prostate, this intrusion can impede the flow of urine from the bladder through the urethra to the outside. While this may not sound concerning, the inconveniences of living with this condition can include loss of sleep, inability to travel comfortably and difficulty with completely emptying the bladder. With this situation being so prevalent, there has become a solution as simple as the problem itself. Leading the state in the most non-invasive treatment option, Dr. Tony Nimeh has been designated with a Certificate of Excellence as a result of his experience and training with the Urolift Procedure. The Urolift offers patients improved quality of life without side effects of medications and avoids more invasive surgical approaches done in a hospital. The Urolift is the frontier of urological health; reducing recovery times and improving results. For more information about the Urolift or the many other urological aspects of care that Fairbanks Urology provides, call us at 907-328-0989.
