Patients who want to decrease blood transfusions can look to UPMC Passavant for skilled and compassionate care for their urological needs.
Jehovah’s Witnesses have been the largest group to seek care without transfusions, but other persons prefer to avoid transfusions for religious reasons, ethical concerns, or out of concern for blood safety.
Frequent urination may be a symptom of enlarged prostate, also called benign prostate hyperplasia, or BPH.
Only a doctor can diagnose the cause of a person’s frequent urination, which may be a symptom of other conditions.
Treatments of enlarged prostate include the use of medications or minimally invasive surgery.
For an evaluation of your symptoms, or to make an appointment for your urological needs, contact the coordinators at the UPMC Patient Blood Management Program.
