The Urolift is a relatively new surgical procedure designed to treat men who have benign prostatic enlargement (BPE). It is suitable for those patients where medication has been tried but has not been tolerated, or where it has not been effective.
This procedure involves the insertion of small implants within the prostate to retracts the prostatic lobes, thus relieving the pressure/obstruction on the urethra. After the surgery, most men are able to pass urine without the need for a catheter and they go home on the same day
In most cases there is immediate improvement in the ability to pass urine, with the risks of sexual dysfunction being extremely small. It can be a suitable option for men who have not benefitted from medical therapy and those who would like to avoid major prostate surgery and catherisation
