Treatment for BPH, enlarged prostate with Urolift
Enlarged prostate affects as many at 70 percent of men by the time they are in their 60s. Advanced Urology Associates offers a state of the art minimally invasive procedure called UroLift. It has long term positive effects and enables men to keep their sexual function. Living Healthy Chicago’s Jane Monzures talks with Dr. Greg Andros about this procedure.
The UroLift® System is designed to treat lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) due to benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). It opens the urethra directly by retracting the obstructing prostatic lobes without cutting, heating or removing prostate tissue.
