iTIND BPH Treatment in Men: Top Specialists in the United States
We offer affordable appointment prices with or without insurance. We speak Spanish and Russian languages.
What is iTind for an Enlarged Prostate?
iTind is a temporary implantable prostatic stent for the treatment of BPH in men. iTind can be performed in the doctor’s office under local anesthesia. Patients typically wear the stent inside of the prostate for 1 week, after which the stent is removed in the office. We perform iTind procedure at New York Urology Specialists.
The major advantage of the iTind procedure is its safety, lack of side effects. Men do not experience erection or ejaculation problems after the iTind procedure.
Dr. Alex Shteynshlyuger at New York Urology Specialists is one of the first urologists in the United States to offer iTind for the treatment of an enlarged prostate.
The iTind procedure is a minimally-invasive alternative to transurethral incision of the prostate, a procedure that generally requires anesthesia and a longer recovery period.
How Effective is iTind for Enlarged Prostate?
Studies show that iTind has good efficacy in improving urinary symptoms of BPH. On average, men experience significant improvement in urinary symptoms as measured by the IPSS questionnaire (AUA symptom score) with 50% improvement in symptoms with the score going from 12 to 20 about 6 weeks after iTind Procedure.
iTind works best in patients with small-to-moderate prostate size and mild to moderate urinary symptoms.
Most men feel an immediate improvement in their symptoms once the device is removed 1 week after insertion. You can expect continuous improvement for 3 to 6 months after the procedure. A small amount of blood can occur for 1 to 2 weeks after the procedure.
Most men report a 50% improvement in their symptoms
Total procedure time is less than 6 minutes. Pain score of 3-4/10
How Long Does the iTind Maintain the Benefit of Treatment?
The benefits of the iTind procedure last for up to 3 years and possibly longer. Studies show that the urinary symptoms improve by around 50%, and the urine stream also improved by about over 100%. Post void residual volume decreases by 50% over a period of 6 months up to 3 years.
Does i-Tind for Enlarged Prostate Symptoms Help with Urine Stream?
Studies show that the iTind procedure for BPH improves urine stream by greater than 50% from an average flow of 7 mL/s to about 11 mL/s. While symptomatic improvement is noticeable by 1 month, maximum improvement is achieved in about 2-3 months after the procedure and continue up to 3 years after the procedure.
How is the iTind Procedure Performed?
At New York Urology Specialists, we usually perform the iTind procedure under local anesthesia. It can also be performed under general anesthesia. The procedure takes 5-10 minutes to perform.
A cystoscopy is performed to look inside the urethra and the bladder. The iTind device is inserted through the cystoscope and positioned within the prostate. A small string is tied to the penis to keep the device in place. The device stays inside the patient for 5-7 days.
1 week after the procedure, the patient comes back to our office for the device removal. Removing the iTind device is almost painless and takes less than 5 minutes.
We ask patients to wait a few hours after the procedure to make sure that they are able to urinate after the iTind procedure.
What to Expect after the iTind Procedure for an Enlarged Prostate?
A small string will be wrapped around the penis, which can cause some irritation. It will be removed along with the iTind device 1 week after the procedure. You can clean the string with soap and water, and you can shower normally.
It is normal to feel an urgency to urinate, frequent urination, and some discomfort in the area of the prostate for 1 week while the device is inside. These symptoms tend to go away soon after the iTind removal. A small amount of blood can occur for 2 weeks after the procedure.
What are the Risks of iTind Procedure for Enlarged Prostate?
The risks and side effects of the iTind procedure are similar to what would be expected from similar procedures for enlarged prostate treatment. The most common side effects include UTI, a small amount of blood in the urine, urinary burning that typically resolves within 3-5 days.
Who is a Good Candidate for the iTind Procedure?
Men with prostate size less than 60 ml and no large median lobe are excellent candidates for the iTind procedure.
How Soon can iTind Be Performed?
iTind for BPH is currently FDA approved for the treatment of men with BPH and the United States. New York Urology Specialists is scheduling patients for minimally invasive iTind procedure.

by Charles Thompson on Jul 06, 2019
I am a 54 year-old male who is extremely happy with my care at New York Urology Specialists. I came to see Dr. Alex out of near desperation after consulting with three other urologists. Literally over one night, I began experiencing severe penile pain and burning. None of the other urologists were able to help diagnose what my problem was and seemingly didn't take my problem very seriously. In fact, one of them specifically told me at it had nothing to do with my prostate. After 6 weeks of suffering, I saw Dr. Alex. He examined me and gave me some tests and lab work. He very quickly ascertained that my problem was due to an enlarged prostate. He proscribed medicine to deal with my pain in the short-term and keep my prostate size in check over the long-term. My problem quickly disappeared. Today, 5 years later, I feel great. Dr, Alex listens to you as a patient, takes your opinion and health concerns seriously and knows his field inside-and-out so that you can get proper treatment for your problem. I can't thank him enough for diagnosing and solving my malady - you sometimes can't appreciate a problem until you have it. Getting rid of it and getting back to normal is so important - I am so glad that I saw Dr. Alex for my problem.
