BPH symptoms while preserving sexual function
The UroLift System provides an alternative to tissue removing surgery for the treatment of an enlarged prostate. Small permanent implants, delivered during a minimally-invasive procedure, act like window curtain tie-backs to hold the lobes of an enlarged prostate open. Patients recover from the procedure quickly, and return to their normal routines with minimal downtime.
BPH is a common condition affecting more than 500 million men worldwide. Symptoms include loss of productivity, sleep, depression and decreased quality of life. Medication has long been the first line for treatment but in some instances this has proven inadequate and only temporary. Some patients suffer sexual dysfunction, dizziness and headaches leading them to cease taking their medication.
