UroLift® System

What is the UroLift System?
The UroLift System is a proven minimally invasive procedure to treat an enlarged prostate. It is the only leading enlarged prostate procedure that does not require heating, cutting, or destruction of prostate tissue. The procedure is typically performed as a same-day outpatient procedure, including the office setting, under local anesthesia.1

How Does the UroLift System Work?

Step 1: The UroLift Delivery Device is placed through the obstructed urethra to access the enlarged prostate.

Step 2: Small UroLift Implants are permanently placed to lift and hold the enlarged prostate tissue out of the way and increase the opening of the urethra.

Step 3: The UroLift Delivery Device is removed, leaving an open urethra designed to provide symptom relief
