UroLift® Treatment

The expert urologists at Hattiesburg Clinic have extensive experience performing UroLift procedures.

UroLift® Treatment Overview

The UroLift System treatment is a revolutionary, minimally invasive approach to treating an enlarged prostate, or BPH, that lifts or holds 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. Clinical data has shown that UroLift is safe and effective in relieving lower urinary tract symptoms so you can get back to your day-to-day life and resume your daily activities.

How does UroLift work?

The UroLift System treatment is a straightforward procedure that is performed by a urologist. The urologist places tiny implants to hold the prostate lobes apart, like open curtains on a window, to relieve compression on the urethra. This allows urine to flow normally again. The UroLift System treatment can be done in the physician’s office under local anesthesia. Typically, patients return home the same day without a catheter.

Benefits of UroLift Treatment

There are many advantages of the UroLift system when compared to other surgeries and medications used to treat enlarged prostate including:

  • Lower risk – UroLift patients experience a lower risk of complication when compared with other surgical procedures such as TURP.
  • Quick recovery time – Patients can return to normal activity in days not months.
  • Rapid symptom relief – Many patients experience symptom relief in as early as 2 weeks.
  • Sexual function –Sexual function has been preserved among the hundreds of patients treated.

Enlarged Prostate: An enlarged prostate compresses on the urethra, making it difficult for urine to flow

Step 1: The UroLift Device is placed through the obstructed urethra to access the enlarged prostate

Step 2: Small UroLift Implants are permanently placed to lift and hold the enlarged prostate tissues out of the way and increase the opening of the urethra. The permanent implants are delivered through a small needle that comes out of the UroLift delivery device and into the prostate.

Step 3: The UroLift delivery device is removed, leaving an open urethra designed to provide symptom relief.

What are the side effects of UroLift?

The most common side effects are light blood in the urine, some pain or discomfort when urinating, some increased urge to go and discomfort in the pelvis that typically resolves within two to four weeks after the procedure.

How do I know if the UroLift System treatment is right for me?

The UroLift System is a proven treatment option for BPH patients who are looking for an alternative to drugs or major surgery. You may be considering or scheduled for a TURP/Laser treatment, or are unhappy with or have stopped taking medications. The UroLift System is appropriate for patients seeking a minimally invasive treatment and are concerned about preserving their sexual function and their quality of life.

Will having the UroLift System treatment affect my sexual function?

Sexual function has been preserved among the hundreds of patients treated in our clinical studies.1,2,3,4 This is a unique benefit of the UroLift System treatment compared with other BPH therapies such as TURP, laser and even medication.

Is UroLift permanent?

The UroLift Implant is a permanent implant, and the treatment is intended to be permanent. Durability has been shown to be at least four years in U.S. clinical data,1 and results will continue to be published as follow-ups continue. One unique aspect of the UroLift System is that it does not preclude retreatment or other BPH treatments, should that be needed and desired in the future.
