The UroLift® System treatment is a minimally invasive approach to treating BPH that lifts or holds the excess prostate tissue, moving it out of the way so it no longer blocks the urethra. The procedure does not involve cutting, heating or removing prostate tissue.
The procedure can be done in the physician's office under local anesthesia. Typically, patients can return home the same day and do not require a catheter. Five years' worth of published clinical data has shown that the treatment is safe and effective at alleviating symptoms.
