We utilize rational step-wise approach to prostatitis treatment.
A thorough diagnostic evaluation is a crucial step in treatment selection. Confirmation of diagnosis of chronic prostatitis involves a thorough evaluation to exclude other explanations and causes for symptoms of chronic prostatitis. These can be urinary tract infection, sexually transmitted diseases, prostate infection, prostate enlargement, nerve entrapment or musculo-skeletal causes.
Once a diagnosis is made, the symptoms are classified into categories based on severity and a step-wise approach to treatment is initiated. The initial treatment selected is based on most likely etiology and symptom pattern. Typically a few treatments will be tried over a period of time until appropriate response to treatment is achieved. This requires some patience.
