What is UroLift®?
UroLift is a minimally invasive treatment option that offers effective relief from benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). The UroLift System relieves symptoms by raising the prostate, lifting it so that it no longer presses on your urethra.
After thoroughly numbing your genitals, your urologist passes the UroLift delivery device up the urethra to the prostate, places the UroLift implants into the optimum position to hold the prostate up and away from the urethra. Your urologist then removes the device, and the procedure is complete.
You should be able to return home the same day, with few, if any, after effects. UroLift starts working as soon as the implants are in place, as they unblock the urethra, resulting in an immediate improvement in urinary function. Results for each patient can vary, but men typically experience rapid relief of their symptoms and a noticeable increase in their quality of life.
TURP and TUVP surgery
TURP (transurethral resection of the prostate) and TUVP (transurethral electrovaporization of the prostate) are two methods of removing excess prostate tissue.
During TURP, your urologist thoroughly numbs your genitals before accessing your prostate through your urethra. Your doctor carefully trims away and removes excess prostate tissue to reduce pressure on your urethra and bladder.
TUVP is similar, but instead of cutting into your prostate, your urologist uses a special device to heat and vaporize the extra prostate tissue.
Our urologist team operates out of seven offices and a surgical center to serve the needs of all Northern Georgia residents.
