Dr. Steve Sterious
I am a board-certified urologist, who has been practicing for about 10 years in the Philadelphia area. I do general urology, as well as Robotics with a focus on BPH therapies. I have written several papers on Aquablation, and I’ve been studying it since it was introduced to me in 2019. I was the first surgeon to perform Aquablation in Pennsylvania. I think it is a great technology and has amazing benefits for the patient. I am excited to have a program up and running at Fox Chase Temple health system to start treating BPH patients.

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.
