How Does it Work?

The UroLift System uses a revolutionary approach to treating BPH that lifts and holds the enlarged prostate tissue so it no longer blocks the urethra

It is the only BPH treatment performed by a urologist that does not require heating, cutting, or removal of the prostate tissue.

The procedure is typically performed using local anesthesia and patients typically return home the same day without a catheter.

Procedure

An enlarged prostate can narrow or even block the urethra.

First, the UroLift Delivery Device is placed through the obstructed urethra to access the enlarged prostate.

Then, small UroLift implants are permanently placed to lift and hold the enlarged prostate tissue out of the way and increase the opening of the urethra.

Finally, the UroLift Delivery Device is removed, leaving an open urethra designed to provide symptom relief.

Duration

Treatment with the UroLift System typically takes less than one hour, and does not preclude future UroLift System treatments, TURP, or laser procedures.

Recovery

After the treatment, patients typically go home the same day without a catheter. There is minimal downtime post-treatment and many patients experience symptom relief in as early as 2 weeks. Patients may experience some urinary discomfort during the recovery period.

Risks

The most common side effects of the UroLift System treatment are mild to moderate.

They include pain or burning with urination, blood in the urine, pelvic pain, urgent need to urinate and/or the inability to control the urge. Most of these side effects resolve within two to four weeks after the procedure.

There are few long-term risks associated with the UroLift procedure. However, in about 10% of patients, they were required to remove their implants as they were protruding into the bladder, which could cause stone formation if left untreated. Additionally, there is a minor risk of developing a urinary tract infection (UTI) related to cystoscopy procedure, but this is treatable with antibiotics
