Urolift Procedure Now Offered at UPMC Williamsport
Urologists at UPMC Williamsport are offering a new minimally invasive treatment option for men diagnosed with Benign prostatic hyperplasia, also known as prostate gland enlargement, with the UroLift procedure, according to a recent press release.
“This minimally invasive treatment provides the patient with a quicker return to daily activity, symptom relief, and continued preservation of urological health,” Steven Rockoff, MD, said in the press release.
“It is ideal for patients with enlarged prostate causing lower urinary symptoms looking for an alternative an open surgical treatment to remove part of the enlarged prostate gland or a life of medicine-based treatment,” Rockoff added.
The UroLift system is a revolutionary approach to treating enlarged prostate that lifts and holds the enlarged prostate out of the way so that it doesn’t block the urethra. This is the only procedural treatment that does not require ongoing medication, or the removal or heating of the prostate tissue, according to the press release.
Urologists Glenn Bloiso, MD; Scott Niditch, MD; Christopher Reilly, MD; and Steven Rockoff, MD, see patients at SH Urology, 1705 Warren Ave., Suite 206, Williamsport.
