What Happens During UroLift Treatment?
The UroLift System treatment is performed as an outpatient procedure at the Southern California Urology Institute. You will receive a local anesthetic before the procedure. Then tiny implants will be inserted which will permanently lift and move the prostate tissue that is blocking the urethra. The implants essentially clip back the obstructive tissue, creating a clear pathway for urine to flow through the urethra.
The procedure doesn't involve any heating, cutting, or removal of prostate surgery. Instead, UroLift is considered a minimally invasive procedure, which is FDA-cleared. Patients can go home the same day.
