Going Less and Living More

A new procedure addresses common prostate problem.


A 15-minute procedure under light sedation is restoring quality
of life to men living with prostate issues.

An enlarged prostate, which commonly affects men in their 60s, causes frequent urination and, in particular, the need to urinate multiple times during the night. The loss of sleep can cause a loss of productivity, depression and decreased qualityof life. The new procedure, known as “Urolift,” provides more immediate improvement and causes fewer complications than other options available, explained VMC urologist Marty Prah, MD.

 

“The Urololift is newly approved by the Food
and Drug Administration, but it has been in development and testing for several years, and it has been proven to last at least five years,”
Dr. Prah explained.
