UroLift®

introduction

The UroLift® system is a proven surgical option for treatment of lower urinary tract symptoms due to an enlarged prostate. UroLift® is a day case procedure with shorter or no catheterisation that gently opens the urethra without cutting or removing prostate tissue. Uniquely, UroLift® system treatment preserves sexual function with 0% incidence of anejaculation or retrograde ejaculation. The UroLift® system received Interventional Procedures Guidance from NICE in January 2014 and has now been selected for the Medical Technologies Evaluation Programme.

Mr Thilagarajah has trained under the guidance of Professor Peter Chin, based in Australia, one of the early surgical advisors in the development of the UroLift® System.
