how does the UroLift® System work?
The urologist places small, permanent implants into the prostate to lift and hold the enlarged tissue out of the way, relieving pressure on the urethra and allowing urine to flow. There is no cutting, heating, or removal of prostate tissue required which means a minimally invasive, straightforward procedure and less downtime for patients.
The small UroLift Implant is made from commonly used implantable materials. Typically, 4-5 implants are used per patient.
