Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia, or BPH, is a very common condition in which the prostate enlarges as men age. Over 70% of men in their 60s have symptoms of BPH. It is common for men with BPH to experience symptoms such as a frequent need to urinate both day and night, weak or slow urinary stream, a sense that you cannot completely empty your bladder, difficulty or delay in starting urination, urgent feeling of needing to urinate or a urinary stream that stops and starts.

Treatment options for BPH range from medications to surgery, with minimally invasive options in between.

In 2013, the FDA cleared the UroLift® System, a breakthrough minimally invasive procedure to treat symptoms of enlarged prostate. Unlike other surgical options, it does not require any cutting, heating or removal of prostate tissue.

The UroLift procedure is performed by a urologist and can be done in office or in the hospital. The urologist uses the UroLift device to lift and move the enlarged prostate tissue out of the way so it no longer blocks the urethra (the passageway that urine flows through). Tiny implants are placed to hold the tissue in place, like tiebacks on a window curtain, leaving an unobstructed pathway for urine to flow normally again.

The UroLift System treatment takes less than an hour, and typically does not require catheterization post-procedure. The UroLift System preserves sexual function.

Dr. Daniel Jaffee of Affiliated Urology is recognized as a UroLift Center of Excellence. Dr. Jaffee has achieved a high level of training and experience with the UroLift System and has demonstrated a commitment to exemplary care for men suffering from symptoms associated with Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia or BPH.
