How Long Does UroLift® Treatment For BPH Last?
Prostate problems may not be the most comfortable topic of discussion, but the symptoms themselves can be even more uncomfortable. For men 40 and older, an enlarged prostate can wreak havoc on their everyday lives. From frequent urination to the inability to urinate altogether, BPH symptoms can be inconvenient, uncomfortable, and downright embarrassing. The acclaimed team at Kasraeian Urology, led by board-certified urologists Dr. Ahmad Kasraeian and Dr. Ali Kasraeian, understands the frustrating nature of BPH symptoms and is proud to offer the most advanced BPH solutions available in Jacksonville, FL – including the groundbreaking UroLift treatment – to help men regain control of their lives and restore their confidence.
What is BPH?
Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) is a non-cancerous enlargement of the male prostate gland. The prostate gland surrounds the urethra, which is the tube that carries urine and semen out of the body. When the prostate is enlarged, it can put an undue amount of pressure on the urethra, causing disruptive ejaculatory and urinary side effects. Common symptoms of BPH, which typically affect men over the age of 40, may include:
- Constant sensation of needing to urinate
- Frequent urination
- Inability to urinate
- Slow or spraying urinary stream
- Recurrent UTIs
- Nighttime urgency
How is BPH treated?
There are a number of highly effective treatments for BPH, each of which has its own unique set of applications and advantages. During your initial consultation for BPH in Jacksonville, FL, Drs. Ahmad and Ali Kasraeian will take ample time to evaluate your symptoms, discuss your health history, and determine the most appropriate BPH treatment plan for you. Depending on the nature and severity of your BPH symptoms, Kasraeian Urology may recommend oral medications, minimally invasive therapy, or a surgical procedure to treat your BPH.
One of the most exciting and convenient BPH treatments in Jacksonville, FL is UroLift therapy, which is offered as a unique and long-lasting solution for BPH symptoms.
What is UroLift?
UroLift is a revolutionary treatment for BPH symptoms that involves the implantation of tiny structures, which prevent the prostate from compressing the urethra. By pulling the excess prostatic tissue away from the urethra, UroLift dramatically decreases obstructive BPH symptoms, including frequent urination, urgency, and others.
How long does UroLift last?
Because it is a mechanical procedure, the majority of patients notice a significant improvement in their BPH symptoms virtually immediately after UroLift. What’s more, the placement of tiny implants during UroLift surgery can result in a virtually permanent improvement in the patient’s BPH symptoms. For men considering UroLift, it is important to remember that, like other procedures, UroLift cannot permanently stop the aging process, nor can it reverse 100% of BPH symptoms. However, with a healthy lifestyle, many patients can enjoy lifelong results after UroLift implantation.
