Physicians of Lowcountry Urology Clinics of Charleston SC are the most experienced providers in the Lowcountry in using the Urolift system for treating the symptoms of enlarged prostate (BPH). We invite referring physicians to consider us for their patients who may benefit from this procedure.

As a service to our referring physicians, Lowcountry Urology Clinics would like to present some basic information on the UroLift® System that may be of benefit to patients and referring physicians.

Benefits of UroLift® System for Enlarged Prostate

The UroLift® System treatment, featured on The Doctors, 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.

  • Straightforward procedure
  • Minimally invasive
  • Minimal downtime
  • Typically no catheter or overnight stay required after treatment
  • Preservation of sexual function
  • Durable results
  • Rapid symptom relief, as early as 2 weeks post procedure

How Does UroLift Work?

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. The UroLift System treatment can be performed under a brief anesthetic in the outpatient setting. Typically, patients return home the same day without a catheter.1,2,3

Recovery from UroLift System® Treatment for Enlarged Prostate

Most common adverse events reported include hematuria, dysuria, micturition urgency, pelvic pain, and urge incontinence. Most symptoms were mild to moderate in severity and resolved within two to four weeks after the procedure.1
