UroLift Q&A

What is UroLift®?

The UroLift System is a safe, effective, minimally invasive treatment for urinary problems associated with an enlarged prostate gland. It offers quick relief and recovery for men living with this condition. 

The Pasadena Urological Medical Group team provides UroLift right in the office, along with Pro-Nox™ nitrous oxide sedation for patients who desire it.

How does UroLift work?

UroLift uses tiny implants to hold open obstructed parts of your urinary tract that block urine flow due to an enlarged prostate. The procedure reopens blocked channels without burning, cutting, or removing prostate tissue. 

UroLift reduces the need to undergo traditional surgery or take prescription medicines that can cause fatigue, dizziness, or sexual dysfunction. 

Is UroLift right for me?

Your Pasadena Urological Medical Group provider determines if you’re a candidate for UroLift after reviewing your symptoms, medication regimen, and medical history. They complete a physical exam, check your vital signs, and may order blood tests, urine testing, ultrasound, or urodynamic studies (UDS).

How should I prepare for the procedure?

To get ready for UroLift surgery, follow your Pasadena Urological Medical Group specialist’s instructions. 

You may have to stop taking certain medications or supplements and make arrangements for someone to drive you home after the procedure (if you plan to relieve nitrous oxide to relax you). Avoid smoking before and after surgery.

What should I expect during UroLift placement?

UroLift is a simple outpatient procedure you can undergo right in the Pasadena Urological Medical Group office under local anesthesia and nitrous oxide. Your provider inserts tiny implants through an obstructed urethra to lift and hold enlarged prostate tissue away from the urethra opening. 

What happens after a UroLift procedure?

You likely don’t require catheterization after a UroLift procedure and can usually return home immediately afterward. Make sure to get plenty of rest and take medicines as directed. Avoid strenuous activity until your surgeon gives you permission.

The recovery after a UroLift procedure is fast. You can expect urinary symptom relief in just days instead of weeks.
