What is a prostatic urethral lift (Urolift®) procedure?
A prostatic urethral lift is a minimally-invasive procedure that can help relieve urination problems caused by an enlarged prostate (also called benign prostatic hyperplasia or BPH).
It is performed as a day visit procedure in suitable men and doesn’t usually require a catheter tube to be inserted after surgery. The procedure can be done under local anaesthetic with sedation to keep the patient sleepy and has been shown to have good results for suitable patients. Most patients will be able to return home a few hours after the procedure.
