Hunterdon Urological Associates, a specialty practice of Hunterdon Healthcare, is now offering a minimally-invasive procedure designed to relieve symptoms caused by an enlarged prostate. The UroLift System permanent implants hold the lobes of an enlarged prostate open. Patients recover from the procedure quickly and return to their normal routines with minimal downtime.
More than 500 million men worldwide have an enlarged prostate. Medication is often the first line of therapy but relief can be inadequate and temporary. Side effects of treatment can include sexual dysfunction, dizziness and headaches, prompting many patients to quit using the medication.
The UroLift System provides an alternative to tissue removing surgery. Performed through the urethra, a urologist uses the UroLift System to push aside the obstructive prostate lobes and positions small, tailored permanent UroLift implants to hold the prostate lobes in the retracted position. This opens the urethra while leaving the prostate intact.
“Hunterdon Healthcare is committed to providing patients with the highest quality, most effective options to address their urology needs,” said Brian Sperling, D.O. Hunterdon Urological Associates. “The UroLift System has an excellent safety profile and provides men suffering from an enlarged prostate a beneficial first-line treatment alternative to drug therapy or more invasive surgery. Importantly, the UroLift System provides fast and meaningful relief from BPH symptoms, improving overall quality of life for our patients.”
