DOWNERS GROVE, Ill. — DuPage Medical Group (DMG), the largest independent, multi-specialty physician group in Illinois, has announced that urologists Cameron Jirschele, DO and Craig Smith, MD have achieved the UroLift® Center of Excellence designation. This prestigious designation recognizes urologists for their expertise in treating patients with the UroLift® System and commitment to providing high quality care.
The UroLift System is a minimally-invasive treatment option for patients with Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH), also known as enlarged prostate. The UroLift System treats BPH by using tiny implants to open the pathway that is blocking the urethra. The procedure is performed on an outpatient basis, often in the physician’s office.
To achieve this designation, Drs. Jirschele and Smith have completed extensive BPH and Urolift System training and have demonstrated their clinical expertise through consistent procedural volume and improved patient outcomes. In addition, both physicians have improved patient outcomes by 60 percent compared to baseline average.
“We’re honored to receive this recognition. We strive to meet our patients’ needs by helping them select a treatment option that will improve their quality of life,” said Dr. Smith. “Our patients with BPH often express their desire for symptom relief without the use of long-term medication or surgery. UroLift allows us to fulfill that need with an effective in-office treatment.”
DMG began offering the UroLift treatment for patients in November 2017. Drs. Jirschele and Smith are two of only six urologists in the state of Illinois to receive this designation.
As with any procedure, UroLift may not be appropriate for all BPH patients. To learn more about these physicians and Urolift, visit our Urology page..
