UroLift at Woodthorpe Hospital

UroLift® for prostate problems (BPH) 

We are one of only a few hospitals in the country offering  a relatively new treatment option, called UroLift®, for men with benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). 

The UroLift® system received NICE guidance approval in 2014, as a proven surgical option for the treatment of lower urinary tract symptoms due to an enlarged prostate due to BPH. The treatment works by using a number of tiny implants to lift and hold the enlarged prostate tissue out of the way so that it no longer blocks the urethra, resulting in improved urine flow.

UroLift® is unique in that it does not destroy the prostate tissue, meaning that it does not cause erectile dysfunction or permanent urinary incontinence.  It is a minimally invasive procedure which can means patients can return home and to normal daily activities soon after treatment.
