Urolift Review

Dr. Dean Elterman,


I'm writing to you this morning to give you updates on the state of my condition following the Urolift procedure that you've performed on me on May 6th. It's been 3 weeks now and I must tell you how much this has changed my life. First, I did follow your recommendation to remove the catheter after the chemo treatment on Friday. That gave enough time for healing, plus there was no bleeding, no pain and no problem getting control back to urinate. I had a bit of blood the first 2 days and a bit of discomfort but nothing serious. After that and since then I feel like I am 40 again.


This procedure was the best thing to do for someone in my condition, doing chemo and not having to worry about healing [from] a surgical operation or infections. You did a great job Dr. Elterman, this is a success story so far. You and your team are real professionals, from Mrs. Deborah Patrick who took care of my case from the beginning, to nurse Peggy who really made sure I was comfortable during and after the procedure. Overall, the whole experience for me was worth it.


Have a good day doctor, I'm having a great one...
