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 the UroLift System Works
An enlarged prostate compresses on the urethra, making it difficult for urine to flow.
The UroLift Device is placed through the obstructed urethra to access the enlarged prostate.
The device compresses the tissue and delivers tiny implants to lift and hold prostate tissue out of the way, thus opening the urethra. The permanent implants keep the tissue in place, like tiebacks on a window curtain.
The UroLift Device is removed, leaving an open urethra for urine to flow.
