The Urolift System is an FDA cleared treatment for enlarged prostates; it is a straightforward procedure that can be performed in the office which opens up the blocked urethra by lifting and holding enlarged prostate tissue out of the way without ongoing BPH medications, cutting, heating or removal of prostate tissue.
The Urolift procedure is a revolutionary treatment that provides rapid and durable relief from the bothersome urinary symptoms associated with BPH. Clinically proven to be safe and effective, the Urolift procedure can improve symptoms better than with medication.
• Rapid Symptom Relief
• Risk profile better than reported for surgical
Procedures such as TURP
• Symptom relief better than reported for medications
• Preservation of sexual function
• Quick return to normal activity
• Increased quality of life
