Dr. James Krick is renowned for treating various urological conditions.
As a board-certified urologist specializing in the treatment of all aspects of general urology, Dr. James Krick enjoys interacting with patients in his office as well as in the operating room. Dr. Krick, a member of Central Florida Health Medical Group, is committed to getting to know his patients so he can provide them with a comprehensive treatment plan that is customized to meet their individual needs. He often says that you don’t really know a person until you hear them tell their story.
“I thoroughly enjoy facilitating the restoration of patients’ health, whether through surgical intervention, assisting with medication management, or providing education about chronic disease prevention and the importance of leading a healthy lifestyle,” Dr. Krick says.
One of the most recent advances in urology is the UroLift® device, a revolutionary new alternative to transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP) to treat prostate enlargement. TURP is a procedure that typically involved cutting tissue away to open the channel between the urethra and the bladder. Alternatively, UroLift® is a minimally invasive procedure that takes 15 minutes to complete.
“You don’t remove any tissue, you don’t cause any significant bleeding, the patient is not under anesthetic for more than a few minutes, and the recovery time is just a day or so,” says Dr. Krick, adding that those factors make UroLift® an exceptional choice for many men with prostate enlargement who would rather not be out of work or away from recreation for too long.
Excitingly, there are a number of technological advancements in the field of urology, and new advancements are made each year that enhance the quality of life for those suffering from urologic disorders.
“I continue to be impressed with the wide variety of new techniques and procedures in my field that truly improve the overall health of the patients we serve. It is a special honor to be a part of their journey,” Dr. Krick says. “The future of medicine is bright in our community,” he adds. “I enjoy my career considerably, including getting to know my patients and their families. The human side of medicine motivates me and serves as a stimulus to keep forging new pathways to overall urologic health.”
