    I live 100 miles north of NYC. I had a PAE performed by Dr Bagla in VA, and it was absolutely worth the traveling. He is extremely experienced, attentive, and accessible. I spoke with him on the phone and traded emails with his staff numerous times prior to the procedure.

    A good doctor will encourage not discourage it. That poster must be a Urologist. They are medieval with surgeries that cut and burn and will screw up your life both sexual and otherwise.

    Ribz99, don't listen to these naysayers. My IR Professor got his training under Dr. Isakson, from NC and it was a miracle for me too. His is now at Stanford, but going NC from NY area is not that bad. I agree Drs. Bagla and Isakson are the best choice, but you have somebody in NYC, doing this too.

    Good luck.

      What about Dr Bhatia at Univ Miami Miller School of Medicine?

      Ive read Bagla is outstanding technically but little follow up post surgery.

      I would think if someone is at Stanford, as your IR is, they have to be good

      Thanks Rich

      That is good to know

      How soon after your PAE did you see improvement in flow and LUTS?

      My prostate is 130 cc with median lobe

      Need 0.8 mg Flomax to pee

      PVR is 55-85 mL and get up 1-4x per night

      I wrestle between

      PAE and HOLEP

      I talked briefly w Bagla. He seemed preoccupied and rushed. Contrast w Dr Karamian who answered a lot of questions in a long conversation

      I wish I could fly out to meet Bagla and Bhatia for a consult but that's not possible

      I have a lot of questions

      Do you think I can email Bagla?
