Seth Bechis, MD, is a board-certified urologist who cares for patients with diseases of the urinary tract, including kidney stones — both surgical treatment and prevention — benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) or enlarged prostate, and men's health issues. He has surgical expertise in percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL) for complex stones, ureteroscopy and shockwave lithotripsy.
Dr. Bechis likes to education patients on their conditions so that they can make more informed choices about their treatments. Being able to relieve pain and restore a patient’s health are the most rewarding aspects of his job.
Dr. Bechis specializes in all procedures of the prostate including minimally invasive procedures such as Rezum water vapor therapy and UroLift, as well as robotic surgery and GreenLight™ Laser photoselective vaporization of the prostate (PVP). He is among only a select number of physicians in the country — and the first doctor in California — to be designated as a Center of Excellence for GreenLight™ Laser Therapy.
