The UroLift® System Treatment

Understanding Enlarged Prostate and the UroLift® System

What is an Enlarged Prostate?

Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH), commonly known as an enlarged prostate, is a prevalent condition affecting men as they age. This non-cancerous growth of the prostate gland can significantly impact quality of life by causing various urinary symptoms. The condition is remarkably common:

- Over 40% of men in their 50s have BPH

- More than 70% of men in their 60s experience BPH

As the prostate enlarges, it presses on and blocks the urethra, leading to bothersome urinary symptoms such as:

1. Frequent urination, both day and night

2. Weak or slow urinary stream

3. Incomplete bladder emptying

4. Difficulty or delay in starting urination

5. Urgent need to urinate

6. Intermittent urinary stream

Introducing the UroLift® System

The UroLift® System offers a minimally invasive solution for treating an enlarged prostate. It provides an alternative to medications and major surgery, standing out as the only leading BPH procedure that doesn't involve heating, cutting, or destroying prostate tissue.

How the UroLift® System Works

The UroLift® procedure involves three simple steps:

1. The UroLift® Delivery Device is inserted through the obstructed urethra to access the enlarged prostate.

2. Small UroLift® Implants are permanently placed to lift and hold the enlarged prostate tissue away from the urethra, increasing its opening.

3. The Delivery Device is removed, leaving an open urethra designed to provide symptom relief.

Advantages of the UroLift® System

1. Safety and Efficacy: The UroLift® System has been proven safe and effective in numerous clinical studies.

2. Improved Risk Profile: It offers a better risk profile compared to procedures such as Transurethral Resection of the Prostate (TURP).

3. Rapid Symptom Relief: Patients often experience faster symptom relief compared to medication-based treatments.

4. Preservation of Sexual Function: Unlike many other BPH treatments, the UroLift® System has not been shown to cause new and lasting sexual dysfunction.

5. Minimally Invasive: The procedure doesn't require incisions or removal of prostate tissue.

6. Quick Recovery: Most patients return to their normal routines within a few days.


For men struggling with the frustrating symptoms of BPH, the UroLift® System offers a promising solution. This innovative treatment provides an opportunity to address urinary symptoms effectively without relying on daily medications or undergoing major surgery.

If you're experiencing symptoms of BPH and are looking for an alternative to traditional treatments, the UroLift® System may be worth considering. Consult with a urologist to determine if this procedure is suitable for your specific condition and needs. Don't let BPH symptoms control your life – take the first step towards regaining your quality of life with the UroLift® System.
