J Urology 2016 - Sonksen J, Barber N, Speakman M, Berges R, Wetterauer U, Greene D, Sievert KD, Chapple C. Multi-National, prospective, randomized study of the prostatic urethral lift (PUL) vs. transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP): two year result.
An enlarged prostate can narrow or even block the urethra.
Step 1 of the Procedure
The UroLift Delivery Device is placed through the obstructed urethra to access the enlarged prostate.
Small UroLift Implants are permanently placed to lift or hold the enlarged prostate tissue out of the way and increase the opening of the urethra. The permanent Implants are delivered through a small needle that comes out of the UroLift Delivery Device and into the prostate.
The UroLift Delivery Device is removed, leaving an open urethra designed to provide symptom relief.

The UroLift System is an alternative for patients looking for something other than drug therapy or more invasive surgery. Treatment might be right for you if any of the following apply to you:
You do not want to take another pill every day
You have tried BPH medication but are unhappy with the side effects
You do not want to undergo major surgery due to potential surgical risks of side effects and complications
You want a BPH solution that preserves your sexual function
You want to regain your quality of life with minimal downtime
The UroLift® System treatment is a revolutionary, minimally invasive approach to treating an enlarged prostate, or BPH, that lifts or holds the enlarged prostate tissue out of the way so it no longer blocks the urethra. There is no cutting, heating or removal of prostate tissue.
Clinical data has shown that the UroLift System treatment is safe and effective in relieving lower urinary tract symptoms due to BPH without compromising sexual function. The goal of the UroLift treatment is to relieve symptoms so you can get back to your life and resume your daily activities.
On this page you will find a detailed description of the procedure itself, the aftercare you will receive and details about the Consultant Urological Surgeon Mr Chris Blick who specialises in this procedure.
Please contact us if you require further information or would like to book a consultation.
Your consultation and procedure will be performed by
Dr. Chris Blick, who is a Consultant Urological Surgeon with a proven track record in UroLift.
The UroLift System Treatment is a straightforward procedure that is performed by a urologist. The urologist places tiny implants to hold the prostate lobes apart, like open curtains on a window, to relieve compression on the urethra. This allows urine to flow normally again. Typically, patients return home the same day without a catheter.
