alternatives to chronic medication. Cooled ThermoTherapy™ and Prostiva® RF
Therapy, the market leading non-surgical options, have proven their results
through numerous clinical studies and are recommended treatment options from
the American Urology Association guidelines.
The show features Dr. J. Randolf Beahrs, a board certified urologist and
Director of Minimally Invasive Office Procedures at Metro Urology in St. Paul,
Minnesota and a BPH patient who underwent a Prostiva RF Therapy procedure. Dr.
Beahrs has extensive urologic experience and has treated numerous patients
using both Cooled ThermoTherapy and Prostiva RF Therapy.

side effects." stated Dr. Beahrs. "We can now offer state-of-the-art
