The UroLift® System is a new, minimally invasive approach to treating BPH for patients looking for an alternative to drug therapy or more invasive surgery. The UroLift System is a straightforward procedure that utilizes tiny implants to lift and hold the enlarged prostate tissue out of the way so it no longer blocks the urethra. There is no cutting, heating or removal of prostate tissue.

Clinical data has proven that the UroLift System treatment is safe and effective and can improve BPH symptoms 3 to 4 times greater than with medication1. Results have shown durability to two years with no impact to sexual function2. The goal is to relieve you of bothersome urinary symptoms so you can get back to your life and resume daily activities.

Most common adverse events reported include hematuria, dysuria, micturition urgency, pelvic pain, and urge incontinence. Most symptoms were mild to moderate in severity and resolved within two to four weeks after the procedure.

 How does the UroLift System work?

The UroLift System consists of a delivery device and permanent implants. The implants are delivered during a minimally invasive treatment and act like window curtain tie-backs, holding the lobes of the enlarged prostate open to relieve obstruction. No cutting, heating, or removing prostate tissue is involved.

Is UroLift System treatment right for you?

The UroLift System is a treatment option for BPH patients who are looking for an alternative to drugs or major surgery. You may be considering or scheduled for a TURP/Laser treatment, or are unhappy with or have stopped taking medications. The UroLift System is appropriate for patients seeking a minimally invasive treatment and are concerned about preserving their sexual function and their quality of life, post-treatment.
