Better Stream: UroLift for the Treatment of BPH Listen To This Episode on Apple Podcasts

In this episode we discuss the Urolift procedure for the treatment of the urinary symptoms associated with an enlarged prostate (BPH). It is considered one of the so called MIST procedures -minimally invasive surgical therapies for BPH. So where does Urolift fit in amongst the various procedures we have discussed for the treatment of BPH. How does it compare to other minimally invasive procedures like Rezum and iTind? How does it stack up against more traditional surgical therapies such as TURP or specialized procedures like HOLEP or robotics simple prostatectomy? What are the risks and benefits? How durable is the procedure? And, probably most importantly, what kind of outcome or improvement can someone expect from the procedure? To answer these questions and many more we turned to a true expert.
