UroLift® Frequently Asked Questions

UroLift® could be the best solution for you!

How long does the UroLift® procedure take?

The UroLift® System is a breakthrough minimally invasive treatment that typically takes less than an hour and can offer multiple benefits for men with prostate enlargement.

What should patients expect in terms of recovery from the UroLift® procedure?

After 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.

How does UroLift® compare to my other options for BPH treatment?

UroLift® is a safe and effective treatment for symptoms related to BPH. Its risk profile is better than most traditional surgical options, and patients report symptom relief better than reported with medications

Is it common for UroLift® to cause erectile dysfunction?

In the large, pivotal study on the UroLift® System, there were no instances of new, sustained erectile dysfunction or ejaculatory dysfunction.* The same cannot always be said of other BPH therapies such as TURP, laser, and even medication.

How long do the effects of UroLift® last?

The Implants are intended to be permanent. The implant is made up of standard surgical implantable materials. If ever needed, your doctor can remove the urethral implant. The suture can be cut and the urethral end piece can be retrieved with a standard grasper. The capsular tab will remain in place inside the body.

What are the most common side effects of the UroLift® procedure?

The most common side effects reported in clinical studies were mild to moderate and include pain or burning with urination, blood in the urine, pelvic pain, urgent need to urinate, and/or the inability to control the urge to urinate. Most symptoms did resolve within two to four weeks after having a UroLift® procedure.*

Does Medicare cover the cost of UroLift®?  What am I looking at in terms of patient coverage?

Yes! The UroLift® System treatment is covered by Medicare and many private insurers. Contact your insurance provider for your specific coverage information.
