Discover how the new, minimally invasive UroLift® system can alleviate your urinary pain caused by an enlarged prostate. Enquire online to see a specialist.
The UroLift® System is a new, minimally invasive treatment that alleviates the urinary symptoms of an enlarged prostate.
It is normal for the prostate gland to get larger with age, but due to the enlargement, it can tighten around the urethra, blocking the flow of urine in the bladder (see fig.1)
Through a UroLift® procedure, the urologist places permanent implants that will hold and lift the prostate lobes, thus relieving the pressure from the urethra and allowing the urine to flow normally. The procedure is conducted under either local or general anaesthesia. Once the area is anaesthetised, the consultant urologist will insert through the urethra the UroLift® delivery device. This device has a small needle that will place the tiny implants, unblocking the urethra.
