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.
In 2017, Mukaram Gazi, MD, the director of Men’s Health at UUANJ, 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.
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:
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.
