UroLift® for BPH

BPH is a very common condition and is one of the leading reasons men visit a urologist. Whether you have just started experiencing symptoms or if you’ve tried various medications or even surgery, there are a range of treatment options available.

Before you visit with Dr. Pazona you can take the BPH Quiz below to determine the severity of your symptoms. Then Dr. Pazona will discuss your symptoms with you to decide which treatment option is best for you.


What is BPH?

Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia, or BPH, is a condition in which the prostate enlarges as men get older. BPH is a very common condition that affects over 40 million Americans and over 500 million aging men worldwide. Over 40% of men in their 50s and over70% of men in their 60s have BPH¹. While BPH is a benign condition and unrelated to prostate cancer, it can greatly affect a man’s quality of life.

As the prostate enlarges, it presses on and blocks the urethra, causing bothersome urinary symptoms such as:

  • Frequent need to urinate both day and night
  • Weak or slow urinary stream
  • A sense that you cannot completely empty your bladder
  • Difficulty or delay in starting urination
  • Urgent feeling of needing to urinate
  • A urinary stream that stops and starts

If you suffer from the above symptoms, you are not alone. BPH is the leading reason men visit a urologist.

What is UroLift®?

Treatment with the UroLift® System uses a minimally invasive approach that provides rapid relief and recovery of BPH symptoms. It is an earlier treatment option that can get men off BPH medications and avoid major surgery. The goal of the UroLift System treatment is to relieve symptoms so you can get back to your life and resume your daily activities.

The UroLift® System treatment has demonstrated a significant improvement in quality of life for patients compared to medications.2,3

The UroLift® System is the only BPH procedure shown not to cause new and lasting erectile or ejaculatory dysfunction*, while being a safe and effective treatment of lower urinary tract symptoms due to BPH

How Severe Are Your BPH Symptoms?

The International Prostate Symptom Score (IPSS) is a common method for screening and diagnosing benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). The survey asks seven urinary symptom questions and one quality of life question to help determine the severity of your BPH.

How Does It Work?

The UroLift® System uses a revolutionary approach to treating BPH that lifts and holds the enlarged prostate tissue so it no longer blocks the urethra. It is the only available BPH treatment performed by a urologist that does not require heating, cutting, or removal of the prostate tissue. The procedure is typically performed using local anesthesia in a physician’s office or ambulatory surgery center. Patients typically return home the same day without a catheter.

Why UroLift®?

The UroLift System provides a proven treatment that can get men off BPH medications which can make a person feel foggy and cause sexual dysfunction.1,2 Treatment with the UroLift System has a risk profile better than surgical procedures that may have serious complications and a long, painful recovery.2-5


Preserve Your Sexual Function

Unlike medications and more invasive procedures, there are no sexual side effects such as erectile dysfunction or loss of ejaculation with the UroLift® procedure

“Cannot recommend Dr. Pazona more highly. I have recently seen Dr. Pazona for a minimally invasive Urolift procedure (which I also recommend). At every turn he was extremely knowledgeable, encouraging of questions, friendly, and concerned for my health. I especially appreciated that Dr. Pazona continued to be responsive and supportive after my surgery."
