What is Urolift?

The UroLift® System is a revolutionary treatment that provides rapid and durable relief from the bothersome urinary symptoms associated with BPH. Clinically proven to be safe and effective, the UroLift System can improve symptoms 3 to 4 times greater than with medication,5 and patients can return to normal activity in a few days.

How does the UroLift® System work?

The doctor places small, permanent implants into the prostate to lift and hold the enlarged tissue out of the way, relieving pressure on the urethra and allowing urine to flow. There is no cutting, heating, or removal of prostate tissue required which means a minimally invasive, straightforward procedure and less downtime for patients.


The small UroLift Implant is made from commonly used implantable materials. Typically, 4-5 implants are used per patient.
