MINNEAPOLIS, May 12, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Urologix, Inc. (OTCQB:ULGX), the leading provider of in-office procedures for the safe, durable and effective treatment of BPH, today announced an upcoming presentation at the American Urological Association (AUA) 2015 annual meeting to be held May 15-18, 2015 in New Orleans, LA.
The podium presentation (Abstract #PD16-09) “Healthcare Costs for Office Based Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia Therapies” was submitted by Craig Smith, MD, FAAP, FACS, DuPage Medical Group, Chicago, IL and Robert G. Pugach, MD, Medical Director, Pacific Coast Urology, Huntington Beach, CA. The presentation will be given Saturday, May 16th in the Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia: Medical & Non-Surgical Therapy podium session between 1:00pm – 3:00pm CDT in Room 215-216, at the New Orleans Morial Convention Center.
“We are excited that the AUA accepted this abstract for a podium presentation. Treatment options, like ours, that provide both low costs and good clinical outcomes are of growing importance to urologists and patients. They both have to navigate a changing healthcare system where they are shouldering more financial risk for the provision of healthcare. With alternative payment structures like ACOs and high deductible insurance coverage, people need to understand what they are paying for,” stated Greg Fluet, CEO of Urologix.
