UroLift® Treatment for an Enlarged Prostate

Minimally-Invasive. State-of-the-Art. Effective & Safe.

In the spirit of Alaska Medical Specialties’ devotion to innovative medicine and patient care, the Alaska Urological Institute now offers the UroLift® procedure. When men have Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH), commonly known as an enlarged prostate, their urethras become pinched. When this happens, it can be difficult and sometimes painful to urinate effectively.

Symptoms for this condition include:

  • Delayed urination
  • Low-pressure urination
  • Frequent need to urinate
  • Never feeling that your bladder is empty

Previously, the most effective treatment for BPH was surgery, which resulted in long-term relief at the cost of an uncomfortable healing time and side-effects that included erectile dysfunction. Other treatments are available, but their side-effects are sometimes worse to patients who would rather deal with BPH than loss of sexual function or similar results.

UroLift® sets itself apart by being a treatment that does not cut, remove, or otherwise affect tissue in any way. Using endoscopic technology, a catheter is temporarily placed in the pinched region of the urethra. There, implants are placed that gently push the prostate gland out, immediately opening the urethral pathway. Because no surgery is required, recovery time is minimal, allowing patients to return to their daily lives quickly with immediate symptom relief.
