The UroLift® System is a new alternative to medications and surgery to treat BPH 

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.

Chesapeake Urology UroLift Center of Excellence

Urolift COE BadgeIn 2017, Dr. Sankar Kausik, Director of Chesapeake Urology’s BPH program, was designated as a UroLift Center of Excellence, recognizing that he has achieved a high level of training and experience with the UroLift System and demonstrates a commitment to exemplary care for men suffering from symptoms associated with enlarged prostate/BPH.

The designation is the first in the State of Maryland and only one of 22 UroLift Centers of Excellence in the United States.  

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.

  • Typically no catheter or overnight stay is required after treatment .
