FDA Approved BPH Treatment
The UroLift® System treatment is a revolutionary, 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. The goal of treatment is to relieve symptoms so you can get back to your life and resume your daily activities. There is no cutting, heating or removal of prostate tissue. The UroLift Procedure was FDA approved in 2013 and is backed by multiple clinical trials. Now, over 300,000 men have been treated with the Urolift System with more than 1.25 million Urolift implants. Medicare and most major commercial insurance plans cover the Urolift System treatment.
Clinical data has shown that the UroLift® System treatment is safe and effective in relieving lower urinary tract symptoms due to BPH without compromising sexual function(1,3)
What Is the UroLift® System?
Treatment with the UroLift® System is typically a one-time, in-office solution that provides rapid relief and recovery for men living with symptoms of an enlarged prostate.1 It breaks the cycle of medications and how they make a person feel, all without the risks of traditional surgery.2 The goal of the UroLift System treatment is to relieve symptoms so you can get back to your life and resume your daily activities.
Why the UroLift System?
The UroLift System provides a proven treatment that can get men off BPH medications, which can make a person feel foggy and cause sexual dysfunction.1,2 Treatment with the UroLift System has a risk profile better than surgical procedures that may have serious complications and a long, painful recovery.2-5 The treatment may be right for you if any of the following apply:
- You want a BPH solution that preserves your sexual function*
- You do not want to take a pill for BPH
- You tried BPH medication and are unhappy with the side effects
- You do not want to undergo major surgery due to risks of complications and side effects
- You want to regain your quality of life with limited downtime

A Minimally Invasive BPH Treatment
The simple UroLift System treatment typically performed in the doctor’s office uses tiny implants to hold open the obstructed pathway that’s blocking urine flow, addressing the blockage, not just continuously treating enlarged prostate (BPH) symptoms. Most patients return home immediately and experience a speedy recovery.
An enlarged prostate can narrow or even block the urethra, causing bothersome urinary symptoms.
The UroLift Delivery Device is placed through the obstructed urethra to access the enlarged prostate.
Tiny UroLift Implants are permanently placed to lift and hold the enlarged prostate tissue out of the way and increase the opening of the urethra.
The UroLift System treatment provides fast and reliable symptom relief by opening the obstructed urethra.
