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.

UroLift Community Health Talk

The UroLift System flyer cover

Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), formerly known as prostatism, is a common urological condition caused by the non-cancerous enlargement of the prostate gland in aging men.

As the prostate enlarges, it can squeeze down on the urethra. This can cause men to have trouble urinating, frequent need to urinate, urgency or other BPH symptoms. Risk factors for developing BPH include increasing age and a family history of BPH.

If you or a loved one are experiencing some of the challenges listed above, there are many options for treatment, one of which is discussed in the flyer with this post.
