Professor Pisco

João Martins Pisco, MD, PHD

Dr. João Martins Pisco is one of the pioneers of a new treatment. In 2009 he launched the minimally invasive procedure, Prostate Artery Embolization (PAE), to treat Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) or enlarged prostate.

Unlike other treatments, this procedure shrinks the enlarged prostate thereby relieving symptoms without surgery or side effects like sexual dysfunction, incontinence (inability to control urination), retrograde ejaculation (ejaculation into the bladder) or bleeding.
