The UroLift® Procedure - An Overview

UroLift® is a minimally invasive procedure for treating benign prostatic hyperplasia, also known as BPH or an enlarged prostate. The goal of the procedure is to relieve the compression on the urethra in order to alleviate urinary symptoms without interfering with sexual function.

How Does the UroLift® Procedure Work?

The UroLift® procedure does not involve cutting, removal, or heating of the prostate tissue. Instead, permanent implants are inserted to pull the lobes of the prostate away from the urethra. This means that the procedure can be performed in our office under local anesthesia with only minimal downtime.

To perform the procedure, the UroLift® delivery device is inserted into the urethra. The device contains a small needle that is then used to place the implant around the prostate. Once the implant is in place, the delivery device is removed.

What Are the Benefits of UroLift®?

Urolift Procedure for BPH

Since the procedure is straightforward and minimally invasive, there is no need for a catheter or an overnight hospital stay. Most patients notice an improvement in their urinary symptoms in as little as two weeks. The results are long-lasting, and the procedure does not interfere with sexual function.

Who Is a Candidate for the UroLift® Procedure?

Most patients choosing UroLift® are looking for a BPH treatment that does not involve drugs or major surgery due to concerns about preservation of sexual function and future quality of life.

What Should I Expect During Recovery?

The UroLift® procedure is well tolerated by most patients. Some patients do have some urinary and pelvic discomfort, light blood in the urine, and increased urinary urgency immediately following the procedure. These symptoms are usually temporary and normally resolve within a few weeks.

At Uromedix, our urologists offer the UroLift® procedure as well as a variety of surgical and non-surgical treatments for BPH. If you are suffering from BPH or other symptoms of urinary issues, contact us today to schedule a consultation. We have convenient locations in Aventura, Pembroke Pines, and Hialeah.
