UroLift Q & A

What is UroLift?

UroLift is an in-office treatment for enlarged prostate, a condition also known as benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). Dr. Pregenzer offers the UroLift system to help you find rapid relief of BPH symptoms, such as:

  • Weak urine stream
  • Difficulties starting urine flow
  • Inability to fully empty the bladder

By using the UroLift system, Dr. Pregenzer can reduce the need for prescription medications and eliminate your risks for medication-related side effects. UroLift can also eliminate the need for traditional surgery to treat an enlarged prostate.

Dr. Pregenzer can determine if you’re the right candidate for UroLift after a careful evaluation of your BPH symptoms and your medical history.

How does UroLift work?

The UroLift system focuses on lifting the enlarged prostate tissue and holding it in place to prevent obstruction of your urine flow.

The procedure is nonsurgical and requires no incisions or removal of existing prostate tissue to achieve results. Dr. Pregenzer uses a local anesthetic to numb the treatment area and places a special device to position the UroLift implants around the prostate.

The implants are designed to lift and hold enlarged prostate tissue out of the way of your urethra. This elevation eliminates obstructions in the urinary tract that cause difficulties with urination and relieves other symptoms associated with BPH.

Dr. Pregenzer performs UroLift procedures in-office, and you won’t need to worry about side effects from the treatment or require a lengthy recovery period. If you experience any discomfort or pain after receiving the implant, Dr. Pregenzer can recommend medications to keep you comfortable.

What are the benefits of UroLift?

UroLift provides immediate relief of your BPH symptoms after the implants are in place. The treatment is safe and effective for men with moderate-to-severe enlarged prostate symptoms and doesn’t affect your erectile or ejaculatory health.

Other benefits of UroLift include:

  • No incisions
  • Short recovery time
  • Immediate and long-lasting results

Side effects of the UroLift procedure are minimal and should resolve on their own within two to four weeks without needing any additional treatment.
