Urologist Dr. John Klein

Potomac Urology announced today that Dr. John Klein has treated 100 patients with the Rezūm® System, providing improved quality of life for men suffering from lower urinary tract symptoms caused by benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), or enlarged prostate. The Rezūm System is an innovative, safe and effective minimally invasive treatment option for men suffering from BPH that does not require general anesthesia and provides an alternative to a lifetime of taking BPH medications. Dr. Klein, a board-certified urologist, offers Rezūm as an in-office BPH treatment option at Potomac Urology in Alexandria and Woodbridge, Va., and is dedicated to bringing his patients new BPH therapies that preserve sexual function and offer a rapid return to normal activities.

He attended medical school at the University of Virginia and completed his urology residency at Cleveland Clinic. Dr. Klein specializes in treating patients suffering from voiding dysfunction and BPH, and was recognized as a Top Doctor for two consecutive years by Northern Virginia Magazine.
