What is BPH?
Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia, or BPH, is a very common condition in which the prostate enlarges as men get older. Over 70% of men in their 60s have symptoms of BPH. While BPH is a benign (non-cancerous) condition, it can cause loss of productivity and sleep, depression and decreased quality of life.
What are the symptoms of BPH?
Multiple trips to the bathroom at night
Sudden urge to urinate
Difficult or painful urination
Weak or slow urine flow
Incomplete elimination of urine
Stopping and starting of flow
What is UroLift®?
The UroLift® System is a revolutionary approach to treating BPH that lifts and holds the enlarged prostate tissue out of the way so it no longer blocks the urethra. It is the only BPH procedure that does not require ongoing BPH medication, cutting, heating or removal of the prostate tissue.
