BPH (Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia) is a common condition marked by bothersome urinary symptoms that can cause loss of productivity, depression, interrupted sleep, and decreased quality of life. If left untreated, for some men there may be long-term risks. BPH can lead to permanent bladder damage. Other serious problems can also develop over time, including bladder stones, blood in the urine, incontinence, or urinary retention.
The UroLift System is a minimally invasive approach to treating BPH that can be performed as a same-day outpatient procedure. It provides rapid symptom relief for men with BPH and allows a quick recovery time for patients. The UroLift System’s permanent implants, delivered during a minimally invasive outpatient procedure, relieve prostate obstruction and open the urethra directly without cutting, heating, or removing prostate tissue. Men can return to their normal routine with minimal downtime and can preserve sexual function.
Worldwide more than 400,000 men have been treated for BPH with the UroLift System. In India, total 32 BPH cases with UroLift system have been performed at various multi-speciality hospitals across the cities.
Men experiencing symptoms of BPH should consult a urologist for more information and treatment options. You may seek BPH treatment if you experience BPH symptoms such as urgent need to urinate, difficulty starting your urine stream, need to push or strain when urinating, dribbling, the sensation that the bladder is not empty after urinating, weak urine flow, increased frequency of urination, frequent night time urination, burning or pain during urination.
