Enlarged prostate, or Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH), is a condition in which the prostate enlarges as men get older. BPH is a very common condition that affects over 40 million Americans.1 Over 40% of men in their 50s and over 70% of men in their 60s have BPH.2 While BPH is a benign condition and unrelated to prostate cancer, it can greatly affect a man's quality of life.

Now, there’s good news. The UroLift® System – the minimally invasive, breakthrough treatment option – is available near you.

The UroLift System uses a revolutionary approach to treating BPH that lifts and holds the enlarged prostate tissue so it no longer blocks the urethra.

The UroLift System is the only BPH treatment shown not to cause new and lasting sexual dysfunction,* while providing rapid relief and recovery of BPH symptoms.3-9 It is the only available BPH treatment performed by a urologist that does not require heating, cutting, or removal of the prostate tissue.

The UroLift System treatment has demonstrated a significant improvement in quality of life for patients compared to medications.6 Symptom relief is better than reported for medications, with a risk profile better than surgical procedures.3,4

Typically, there is no overnight stay or catheter required after treatment with the UroLift System.3 The most common adverse events reported include pain or burning with urination, blood in the urine, pelvic pain, urgent need to urinate, and the inability to control urine because of an urgent need to urinate. Most symptoms were mild to moderate in severity and resolved within two to four weeks after the procedure.

How Severe Are My Symptoms?

The International Prostate Symptom Score (IPSS) is a scoring system used to screen for and diagnose benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). The survey asks seven urinary symptom questions and one quality of life question to help determine the severity of your BPH. Understanding your specific situation will better equip you to choose the right treatment for your BPH so that you can get back to enjoying life.

BPH causes bothersome urinary symptoms that can interrupt your quality of life and the activities you enjoy. As an enlarged prostate presses on and blocks the urethra, symptoms like urgent need to urinate, difficulty starting or straining during urination, incomplete emptying, or even painful urination can occur. If you are diagnosed with BPH, learn how the UroLift System may the right treatment option for you.

Many men living with enlarged prostate (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.4 Medications may not need to be a lifelong burden, however, and men don’t need to wait until surgery is required to address the problem. In fact, they can avoid traditional surgery altogether.

This training included: a) instructional didactic session; b) clinical video review; and c) hands-on UroLift® System use. The current and prior training programs focus on identifying appropriate patient candidates, preparation and operation of the UroLift System, and surgical technique.
