UroLift System® Explained
The UroLift System® is an outpatient treatment that is a minimally invasive approach to treating an enlarged prostate or BPH. It involves lifting the enlarged prostate tissue out of the way, so it no longer blocks the urethra, relieving lower urinary tract symptoms without affecting sexual function. No cutting, heating, or removal of prostate tissue is performed, thus there is very limited recovery time.
Side Effects of the UroLift System®
Common side effects include:
- Small amount of blood in the urine
- Pain with urination
- Pelvic discomfort
Side effects typically resolve within two to four weeks of the procedure.
Advantages of the UroLift System®
Some of the key advantages of this procedure include:
- Rapid symptom relief
- Less invasive than surgical options such as a TURP
- Preservation of sexual function
- No ongoing BPH medication needed
