UroLift Procedure

What is the UroLift Procedure?

The UroLift procedure is a minimally invasive approach to treating an enlarged prostate, or BPH, that lifts or holds the enlarged prostate tissue out of the way so it no longer blocks the urethra. There is no cutting, heating or removal of prostate tissue.

Clinical data has shown UroLift to be safe and effective in relieving lower urinary tract symptoms due to BPH without compromising sexual function. This includes:

  • Urinating more often, especially at night
  • A weak urine stream
  • Trouble starting the flow of urine
  • Starting and stopping again when urinating
  • Not emptying your bladder completely
  • Sudden urges to urinate
  • Leaking or dribbling after you urinate
  • Straining to urinate

How the UroLift Procedure Works

Enlarged Prostate: An enlarged prostate compresses on the urethra, making it difficult for urine to flow.

  • Risk profile better than reported for surgical procedures such as TURP
  • Preservation of sexual function
  • Return to normal activity in days not months
  • Increased quality of life
  • No ongoing BPH medications

Procedure Day

Treatment is a minimally invasive procedure conducted in-office. After the treatment, almost all patients go home the same day without a catheter. There is minimal downtime post-treatment and many patients experience symptom improvement in as early as two weeks.

Symptom Improvement

BPH symptoms may improve in two to four weeks.

When Jeff Brenner first began experiencing bothersome urinary symptoms in his 40s, he attributed it to middle age and figured it was something he could live with.

    An enlarged prostate compresses on the urethra, making it difficult for urine to flow.

    The UroLift Device is placed through the obstructed urethra to access the enlarged prostate.

    The device compresses the tissue and delivers tiny implants to lift and hold prostate tissue out of the way, thus opening the urethra. The permanent implants keep the tissue in place, like tiebacks on a window curtain.

    The UroLift Device is removed, leaving an open urethra for urine to flow. Sourced from NeoTract Inc. MAC00181-01 Rev A.

    Urologists at UCLA Urology are now offering UroLift, a new treatment option for benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH).

    What is UroLift?

    The UroLift System is a straightforward procedure that utilizes tiny implants to lift and hold the enlarged prostate tissue out of the way so it no longer blocks the urethra. There is no cutting, heating or removal of prostate tissue.

    Who is a Candidate for UroLift?

    For men older than 50, benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) is the most common prostate problem. For most of these men, medication is often the first choice of treatment.

    However, for patients with a relatively small to moderate sized prostate gland who do not want to take a daily dose of medication, the UroLift treatment is ideal.

    How does UroLift Work?

    UroLift is unique in that it does not destroy tissue. Instead, UroLift compresses normal tissue that blocks the urethra, resulting in improved urine flow.

    Benefits of UroLift Treatment

    Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) can have a negative impact on a man’s quality of life. The benefits of the UroLift treatment, especially for younger men, will include not only the relief of bothersome urinary symptoms, but also the preservation of ejaculation.

    Because UroLift is performed in the office under local anesthesia, the recovery time and return to daily activities is faster than with more invasive procedures.

    What is Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH)?

    BPH (also referred to as benign prostatic hypertrophy) is a condition in which the prostate gland becomes very enlarged and may cause problems associated with urination, such as blocking or reducing the flow of urine.

    Anatomy of the Prostate

    The prostate is a walnut-sized gland in men that sits below the bladder and surrounds the urethra, the tube that carries urine from the bladder out of the body. 

    Symptoms and Diagnosis of BPH

    While each patient may experience different individual or combined symptoms, the most common symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) include:

    1. Leaking of urine
    2. More frequent urination during the night
    3. Urgency to urinate
    4. Inability to urinate
    5. Discomfort

    According to the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases:

    1. BPH rarely causes symptoms before age 40.
    2. More than half of men in their 60s have some symptoms of BPH.
    3. As many as 90 percent of men in their 70s and 80s have some BPH symptoms

    Diagnosis of an enlarged prostate is sometimes found during a routine rectal examination. BPH can also be diagnosed by the use of common tests such as a urinalysis, a urine study flow, a cystoscopy or a transrectal ultrasound.


    The care you need

    Urology is a broad superspecialty that deals with male and female genito-urinary tract diseases. Broadly we can bifurcate into two verticals: urology, dealing with urinary organs like kidney, ureter, bladder urethra and prostate in men and genital, dealing with sexual organs like penis in men and clitoris and vagina in women.
