Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) is the leading reason men visit a urologist.
BPH is a non-cancerous condition that can greatly affect and disrupt a man’s quality of life.
As the prostate enlarges, it presses on and blocks the urethra, causing bothersome urinary symptoms such as:
The simple minimally invasive UroLift® System treatment is typically performed in the doctor’s office. It uses tiny implants to hold open the obstructed pathway that’s blocking urine flow, addressing the blockage, not just continuously treating enlarged prostate (BPH) symptoms. Most patients return home immediately and experience a speedy recovery.

UroLift is a new breakthrough FDA cleared treatment option for men suffering from benign prostatic hyperplasia. It is a minimally invasive procedure that does not involve heating, cutting or removal of any tissue. The procedure utilizes tiny implants to unblock the urethra by holding the enlarged prostatic tissue.
UroLift is a straightforward procedure, performed in a single day without requiring hospitalization, under local anesthesia. The recovery period is minimal, due to its minimally invasive nature. Patients are able to resume their normal activities in a short time.
Identifying the right surgeon to perform any procedure is one of the most important decisions. Golden State Urology are board certified surgeons/doctors and leading specialists in BPH Treatment.

Clinical studies have shown the UroLift System treatment does not cause new, sustained instances of erectile or ejaculatory dysfunction4. The same cannot always be said of other BPH therapies such as TURP, laser, and even medication.
You may be a good candidate if you are a male, 45 years of age or older, and have symptoms relating to BPH. Speak with your urologist to see if the UroLift® System treatment is right for you. If you have a known allergy to nickel, titanium or stainless steel, talk to your doctor about your allergy before getting a UroLift System treatment.
If you and your doctor decide that the UroLift System treatment is right for you, your doctor will provide you with more detailed information relating to the treatment. In general, the UroLift System is a minimally invasive treatment that entails minimal downtime. Your doctor will use the UroLift Delivery Device to deploy permanent implants to relieve obstruction caused by the enlarged prostate that is pressing on your urethra. The procedure, which usually takes less than an hour, may be performed under local or general anesthesia and you may be given medication to feel comfortable during the treatment. This typically helps minimize discomfort during the procedure, though everyone’s definition for pain and discomfort varies greatly. Typically, no catheter and no overnight stay is required post-treatment.
After the treatment, patients typically go home the same day without a catheter. There is minimal downtime post-treatment and many patients experience symptom relief in as early as 2 weeks. Patients may experience some urinary discomfort during the recovery period. The most common side effects may include blood in the urine, some pain or discomfort when urinating, some increased urge to go and discomfort in the pelvis that typically resolve within two to four weeks after the procedure.
The examination performed will be determined by your physician. The physician may ask you to fill out a questionnaire to assess your symptoms, otherwise known as IPSS (International Prostate Symptom Score). Additionally, some of the common examinations include Digital Rectal Exam (DRE), Transrectal Ultrasonography (TRUS), Bladder Ultrasound, and Urinalysis.
