    Fred, I dont think you can find many if any. When I had mine, he kept telling me he had done over one hundred FLA procedures for BPH. I ask for a few references and for four months they continued to tell me they would produce a list of 3 to five men for me to talk to. They failed to do that and went completely dark on me. Stop taking my calls and would not call back. Even Lillian who would go out of her way and call from home when they were trying to sell me on the procedure.

    I can give you a list of men with contact numbers for FLA procedures done by Karamanian as we FLAers stay in contact with each other. Even Pete in Hong Kong. I know Houston may be a travel for you but believe me you do want the very best when you get this done.

    This is an incredible coincidence , as I was just finishing up reading on the Sperling Prostate web site and quite literally about to post this same question! I pulled up this forum and you had just posted. I am a little freaked out right now! But thanks for posting. Seems we are all on a constant search to find some relief.

    To my knowledge, there are 3 interventional radiologists that have done the majority of the FLA procedures for both prostate cancer and within the past few years, to treat BPH. Those are doctors, Karamanian, Walser (both in Houston area) and Sperling (NY and FL).

    The Inspire website has a very long FLA related thread and there are several on this site as well.

    I had this procedure done in 12/2017 for both PCa and BPH and have several posts about it on both sites.

    My only suggestion, do your own research and reach out to each of these doctors.

    Good luck!

    The background of doctors in most states can be checked on-line by simply entering the name of the State then Physician Profiles and the name of the doctor.
