THE UROLIFT® SYSTEM

The UroLift® System is a new alternative to medications and surgery to treat BPH currently in clinical trials.

This minimally invasive approach to treating BPH lifts or holds the enlarged prostate tissue out of the way so it no longer blocks the urethra, relieving urinary symptoms.  Permanent implants are inserted utilizing a special delivery device and act like “window curtain tie-backs,” holding the lobes of the enlarged prostate open to relieve obstruction of the urethra. There is no cutting, heating, or removal of prostate tissue involved.


 

How UroLift Works:

Step 1:    The UroLift Delivery device is placed through the urethra to access the enlarged  prostate.

Step 2:    UroLift Implants are permanently placed to hold the enlarged prostate tissue out of the way and increase the opening of the urethra.

Step 3:    The UroLift Delivery device is removed. 

 

 

Advantages of the UroLift System:

  • Minimally invasive procedure with minimal downtime in normal daily activities.
  • Typically no catheter or overnight stay is required after treatment .
  • Preserves sexual function – typically, no sexual side effects such as erectile dysfunction or ejaculatory dysfunction.
  • Lower urinary tract symptom relief in as early as two weeks after treatment.
