First Prostate Artery Embolization in Memphis

Image of first PAE in Memphis.

Another first for Memphis Vascular and the city of Memphis:

Dr. Wes Angel - Memphis

Dr Wes Angel performed the first Prostate Artery Embolization in Memphis! This procedure is a non-invasive option rather than surgery for specific patients with Prostate cancer or enlarged prostates.

Working in collaboration with the local urologists, we selected the first candidate. It was a big success!

This patient had a prostate so large it created a blockage preventing him from urinating on his own. He had to have a catheter for months in order to drain his bladder. A short time after the procedure, the prostate has shrunk enough to allow him to have the catheter removed and he can urinate on his own now.
