The UroLift System treatment uses small implants to hold open the obstructed pathway that’s blocking urine flow—addressing the blockage, not just continuously treating enlarged prostate (BPH) symptoms.
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. The Urologists at UUANJ have done hundreds of UroLift procedures with remarkable success.
Like all procedures, the UroLift procedure carries risks and is not a one-size-fits-all solution. It’s important to discuss all of the advantages and risks associated with any procedure with your urologist to ensure optimal outcomes and to find the treatment option right for you.
