Dr. JEFFREY SCHIFF
My lifelong interest in the sciences prompted me to pursue a career in medicine. During medical school, I found the surgical subspecialties incredibly fascinating, and I quickly realized that the field of urology was my calling. I see both men and women of all ages with a variety of urologic concerns. Some of the conditions I treat include complex voiding dysfunction, kidney stones, and cancers of the bladder, prostate, testes, and kidney. I have a particular interest in office-based minimally invasive benign prostate hyperplasia (BPH) procedures such as UroLift, the first permanent implant to treat symptoms due to BPH in men ages 50 or older. I have received the Urolift Center of Excellence status in recognition of my higher level of training and experience in this procedure. I treat patients as an extension of my family. Our entire office works to deliver compassionate and expert care in a friendly environment. I focus on a holistic approach to care, including diet and behavioral and lifestyle modifications. I offer conservative measures, such as medical therapy, to relieve conditions. For patients who don’t respond to more-conservative treatments, I offer procedural or surgical interventions. I am actively involved in bladder and prostate cancer research in addition to clinical trials evaluating new treatment modalities for bothersome lower urinary tract symptoms secondary to BPH. I am a member of the American Medical Association and the American Urologic Association. I am proud to be recognized as a fellow of the American College of Surgeons and a diplomate of the American Board of Urology.

All surgical treatments have inherent and associated side effects. Individual’s outcomes may depend on a number of factors, including but not limited to patient characteristics, disease characteristics and/or surgeon experience. The most common side effects are mild and transient and may include mild pain or difficulty when urinating, discomfort in the pelvis, blood in the urine, inability to empty the bladder or a frequent and/or urgent need to urinate, and bladder or urinary tract infection. Other risks include ejaculatory dysfunction and a low risk of injury to the urethra or rectum where the devices gain access to the body for treatment. Further, there may be other risks as in other urological surgery, such as anesthesia risk or the risk of infection, including the potential transmission of blood borne pathogens. For more information about potential side effects and risks associated with Aquablation therapy for Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) treatment, speak with your urologist or surgeon.
