Urolift for Enlarged Prostate (BPH)

UroLift is a minimally-invasive approach to treating an enlarged prostate (BPH) while preserving sexual function

Why UroLift?

Non-Invasive, Safe, Effective
UroLift is a safe, highly effective procedure that involves no cutting, heating, or removal of prostate tissue.

Preserve Sexual Function
UroLift is the procedure for men seeking relief from their BPH symptoms and wishing to maintain their quality of life. UroLift doesn’t negatively impact sexual function, an issue frequently associated with other BPH therapies such as TURP, laser, and medication. Preservation of sexual function is a unique benefit of the UroLift.

Drug-Free Permanent Treatment
Quick and permanent relief that requires no ongoing maintenance or drugs, with results lasting for several years.

Why trust our clinic with your Urolift?

Our urologists are some of the most experienced with the procedure in all of North America, including having been involved in the original clinical trials. We have been successfully treating BPH with UroLift for more years and in more patients than any other clinic in Canada.

What happens during the procedure?

The enlarged prostate tissue is lifted with the use of UroLift implants to hold the tissue apart and prevent blockage of the urethra.

UroLift is an outpatient procedure that takes 15 to 30 minutes and is performed under light sedation.

Urolift (Dr. Dean Elterman)

Dear Dr. Elterman,

The results are more than I expected. I haven't seen a stream like I am producing in almost 20 years and you know I started with this issue quite young.


The procedure [Urolift] went as you explained which gave me a lot of confidence.

You and your head nurse Deborah are an amazing team.


Thank you,



Leon

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...
