Symptoms and Diagnosis of BPH
While each patient may experience a different individual or combined symptoms, the most common symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) include:
- Leaking of urine
- More frequent urination during the night
- Urgency to urinate
- Inability to urinate
Typical this is treated with medications, however, we are now offering the latest technology with the UroLift System.
What is UroLift?
- Treatment with the UroLift® System uses a minimally invasive approach that provides rapid relief and recovery of BPH symptoms.
- It is an earlier treatment option that can get men off BPH medications and avoid major surgery.
- The goal of the UroLift System treatment is to relieve symptoms so you can get back to your life and resume your daily activities.
- There is no cutting, heating or removal of prostate tissue.
Who is a Candidate for UroLift?
- Men with benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) is the most common prostate problem. For most of these men, medication is often the first choice of treatment.
- However, for patients with a relatively small to moderate-sized prostate gland who do not want to take a daily dose of medication, the UroLift treatment is ideal.
How does UroLift Work?
- UroLift compresses normal tissue that blocks the urethra, resulting in improved urine flow.
- It treats BPH that lifts and holds the enlarged prostate tissue so it no longer blocks the urethra. The procedure is typically performed using local anesthesia in our office.
Benefits of UroLift Treatment
- The benefits of the UroLift treatment, especially for younger men, will include not only the relief of bothersome urinary symptoms but also the preservation of ejaculation.
- Clinical data shows that UroLift helps reduce obstructive prostate tissue and is considered safe and effective for many men.
- It helps relieve lower urinary tract symptoms related to BPH, and it does not compromise a man’s sexual function.
