Central Ohio Urology Group Opens New Interventional Radiology Center with Leading-Edge Men’s Health Initiative for Enlarged Prostate

21 May 2024

Central Ohio Urology Group has opened a state-of-the-art Interventional Radiology Center and launched a groundbreaking initiative in the treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) or enlarged prostate. Providing comprehensive urological services through 15 offices in Columbus and the surrounding region, Central Ohio Urology Group is an affiliate of U.S. Urology Partners, one of the nation’s largest independent providers of urology and related specialty services.

Central Ohio Urology Group is at the forefront of delivering exceptional results in men’s urological care and has a longstanding commitment to provide the most advanced and effective treatment options to men suffering from the symptoms of BPH or enlarged prostate. The new initiative includes a collaboration between Central Ohio Urology Group and Prostate Centers USA®.

Frederick L. Taylor, M.D., Chief Medical Officer of Central Ohio Urology Group, stated, “We are thrilled to be partnering with IR Centers to bring these life-saving and life-changing interventions to Central Ohio Urology Group, including prostate artery embolization, a new, minimally invasive treatment for benign prostatic hyperplasia that can safely and effectively treat large prostate glands without the need for surgical intervention.”

“Interventional radiology can be used to treat a variety of urologic conditions including benign prostatic hyperplasia, blockages of the urinary tract, vascular abnormalities that commonly cause pain, and urologic malignancies such as kidney cancer. We look forward to offering those services to our patients, conveniently located at the Central Ohio Urology Group Wilson Bridge location,” said Dr. Taylor.

Jason Guagenti, Chief Operating Officer of Central Ohio Urology Group, stated, “The new Interventional Radiology Center enables our urologists and their interventional radiology colleagues to work hand in hand to provide comprehensive urologic care for our patients in a convenient, outpatient environment where patient care is at the forefront. From scheduling, to the procedure, to after care requirements, our streamlined system is designed to focus on the patient's needs and experience first."

Dr. Sandeep Bagla, Chief Executive Officer of Prostate Centers USA®, said, “This partnership signifies a leap forward in providing world-class care, particularly for those suffering from conditions like benign prostatic hyperplasia. By combining our expertise in interventional radiology with the comprehensive urological services offered by Central Ohio Urology Group, we are setting a new standard in patient care. Our goal is to significantly improve the quality of life for our patients through minimally invasive procedures, ensuring they receive the most effective treatments with the least amount of discomfort and downtime. We believe this initiative will have a profound impact on men's health care in the region, and we are proud to be at the forefront of this advancement."
