Suffering From BPH? The UroLift® System May Be The Procedure For You

By: Dr. Gary Bellman on February 10, 2017, 4:57 pm

Suffering From BPH? The UroLift System May Be The Procedure For You  
The UroLift® System is the newest 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 medication. Results have shown durability to two years with no impact to sexual function. 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.
 
Compared to other BPH surgeries, the UroLift® System procedure has a strong safety profile with minimal side effects. 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.
 
The goal of the UroLift® System treatment is to relieve symptoms so you can get back to your life and resume your daily activities. Patients who do not want to start or continue their BPH medication, or patients who do not want to undergo major surgery, should consider the UroLift® procedure as an alternative. Your doctor will need to do a few simple examinations to determine if you are a candidate for the procedure based on your specific symptoms and anatomy.
