The Urolift procedure is a minimally invasive treatment option for men with an enlarged prostate, otherwise known as benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). The enlargement of ones prostate is a common occurrence among aging men and is neither a sign nor an indicator of prostate cancer.
BPH reduces or blocks the flow of urine by pressing against the bladder or uretha. This may lead to strong and frequent urges to urinate, trouble emptying the bladder, and a slow stream during urination. The urolift procedure clears a path for the urine to flow by holding enlarged prostatic tissue out of the way via the insertion of four small “urolift” implants into the prostate.
There is no cutting, heating, or ongoing medications involved with this treatment. In addition, it is the only treatment for BPH that does not remove a portion of the prostate and has no observed effect on sexual function. This procedure is performed in the office and can offer you or a loved one rapid and durable relief from your symptoms within 2 weeks. For more information regarding this procedure, please feel free to schedule a consultation.
