UroLift® is the surgical device used in the urethral lift procedure to relieve prostatic obstruction. The procedure is a minimally invasive operation for treatment of lower urinary tract symptoms due to benign prostatic enlargement, without causing sexual side effects, and has high patient satisfaction.
It relieves voiding symptoms caused by prostatic obstruction without destroying the prostate tissue itself and preserves ejaculatory and erectile function. It is done as a day case, either under light general anaesthesia, sedation or even local anaesthesia, and routinely avoids the need for a catheter afterwards. The surgeon uses the device to deploy several cleverly designed implants that hold back the side lobes of the prostate, thereby opening the urethral passage where it passes through the prostate gland.
This procedure would appeal to men with significant and troublesome urinary symptoms due to prostate enlargement, who cannot tolerate or do not wish to take medication, or men who would otherwise need traditional surgery involving an incision or resection of the prostate. Preliminary investigations need to be carried out to ensure that there are no signs of prostate cancer and the prostate is of an appropriate size and internal shape to be suitable for this procedure. Mark has specific training in this operation which has been approved by NICE and is covered by most medical insurance companies.
The urethral lift procedure is one of many treatment options for men with symptoms of prostate enlargement, and the right treatment depends on a careful urological assessment.
Prostate symptoms are common and the careful urological assessment that Mark offers can be highly worthwhile. He will address any potential underlying concerns or complications, as well as guide recommendations for beneficial lifestyle adjustments or treatment that may be required
