Dr. Adam Gropper is a board-certified Diagnostic & Interventional Radiologist. Before undertaking his medical training, Dr. Gropper was an engineer at General Dynamics Corporation, working on various projects including cruise missile guidance systems, “Star Wars” strategic defense simulations, and others. He is a lifelong “techie,” and has always been an early adopter and innovator of new technologies in treating vascular problems with minimally invasive approaches.
Dr. Gropper received his M.D. from Emory University, where he also completed his residency and fellowship training in Vascular & Interventional Radiology. He has been practicing in Florida since 1999. He has served as an Associate Professor at FIU Medical School and recently retired from his position as Chief of Radiology at Jackson North Medical Center after 10 years of service.
It has been Dr. Gropper’s lifelong dream to have his own office-based practice where he could spend plenty of time taking care of his patients in a high-tech, patient-centered atmosphere of his own design. He created Prostate Specialists Miami, a Division of Vivid Vascular to do exactly that. With his new state-of-the-art cath lab, he has been able to provide complete care by being able to perform procedures in his areas of expertise in the office, ensuring the best and most comfortable care for each patient. He has performed thousands of vascular procedures on the arterial and venous systems, and has many years of experience in uterine fibroid embolization and pelvic pain issues, interventional oncology, biopsies, spine interventions and dialysis interventions.
“It’s been so rewarding to build this state-of-the-art practice centered around my patients’ needs,” said Dr. Gropper. “I love seeing my patients walk out the door happy and healthier.”
Dr. Gropper and his wife Kari live in Miami Shores. They have three children and spend their leisure time boating, fishing, snow skiing and traveling.
Frequently Asked Questions
BPH stands for benign prostatic hyperplasia. This is the medical term for an enlarged prostate gland. While enlarged, the gland is not cancerous.
You should seek medical treatment when you start showing signs of BPH. Go to a medical provider immediately if the symptoms are significant. Significant symptoms include blood in the urine, pain in the urinary tract or abdominal area, or painful and frequent urination. You also need to seek immediate medical care if you cannot urinate.
If you don’t seek treatment for BPH, you could develop long-term problems. Because BPH prevents the bladder from fully emptying, you can get urinary tract infections. The condition can also lead to bladder stones, incontinence, and blood in your urine due to an infection. Lastly, urinary retention is a possibility. This occurs when the obstruction is so significant that you cannot urinate.
You can develop a variety of symptoms as a result of an enlarged prostate. First, you might notice that you dribble when you finish urinating. You also might have to get up two or more times in the middle of the night to urinate. It can take longer to start urinating, and the stream might be weak. You also might have to strain to get the urine to come out.
Many men complain of a sudden, overwhelming urge to urinate. Urinating can be painful, and there might be blood in the urine. Eventually, you might become incontinent or lose the ability to urinate.
