Treatment Options for Enlarged Prostate (BPH) Seminar

Urolift Infographic — Awareness

Many men find their lives have been negatively impacted by the ongoing symptoms of an enlarged prostate, called benign prostatic hyperplasia or BPH. Signs of BPH include frequent and urgent urination, weak urine flow and interrupted sleep from multiple trips to the bathroom.

The condition affects more than 40 million men in the U.S., and we see many men in their 40s, 50s and older with symptoms of BPH.

There are a range of treatment options available for BPH including the proven, minimally-invasive UroLift® System procedure. We will discuss all options at the following seminar.
