UroLift BPH Treatment in Nashville, TN
An important part of overall health maintenance for men is monitoring and taking care of their prostate. At Nashville Men's Health our urologists can help men throughout the Nashville area and Middle Tennessee maintain optimal prostate health by treating a number of conditions including BPH, or benign prostatic hyperplasia.
Providing the Full Spectrum of Enlarged Prostate Care
Treatment for BPH is based on how mild or severe the symptoms are and whether the patient is dealing with any complications. Mild symptoms are generally treated with lifestyle alterations and frequent checkups to keep an eye on symptoms. More moderate symptoms are addressed with lifestyle changes as well and the addition of prescribed medications. If symptoms are serious, medications are more frequently used or therapies including minimally invasive treatment can be employed if the symptoms have not responded to the other treatments. These surgical specialties are minimally invasive, and wherever possible, areperformed as same-day outpatient procedures.
The board-certified urologsits at Nashville Men's Health offer the UroLift System to men suffering from bothersome symptoms of BPH, such as frequent urination, the persistent need to urinate, and urination at night. Tennessee men who have undergone the UroLift procedure for an enlarged prostate report feeling better than they have in years.

How UroLift Works
During a simple in-office procedure, your urologist will be able to use the UroLift Delivery Device to insert UroLift Implants around the prostate. These implants work to lift the prostate and pull the edges of the prostate away from the urethra, leaving it open for improved urinary flow.
Benefits of the UroLift System
UroLift possesses many advantages over traditional treatment methods, the primary being that no cuts or sutures are required with UroLift. A local anesthetic is typically all that patients need during their insertion procedure, and they can often return home soon after they are treated for BPH. Results of UroLift are also long lasting. No maintenance is needed, which gives patients the ability to quickly return to their regular activities with renewed control over their urinary system.
Is UroLift Right for You?
If your BPH has worsened to a point where it affects your daily life and overall quality of life, it may be time to consider treatment. An assessment known as the International Prostate System Score is often used to determine the severity of an individual’s BPH symptoms. Take the assessment today.
