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. For men older than 50, benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) is the most common prostate problem. For most of these men, medication is often the first choice of treatment. But newer treatments, such as UROLIFT can provide a carefree treatment to resolve the symptoms of BPH.
What is EuroLift?
The UroLift® System treatment offers rapid, lasting relief from BPH. Tiny implants are used to hold open the obstructed pathway that blocks urine flow. Unlike medications, the UroLift System treatment addresses the blockage directly, offering a mechanical solution to a mechanical problem.
Most men living with BPH symptoms take prescription medications after they’re diagnosed, although these often don’t provide adequate relief and may cause dizziness, fatigue, and sexual dysfunction.
