UroLift® in Concord, North Carolina

Also Serving Charlotte, North Carolina and the Surrounding Area

In the past, traditional treatments for BPH (enlarged prostate) have included lifestyle changes, medications, or surgery. Today, however, there is a revolutionary non-surgical way to relieve the symptoms of BPH without removing prostate tissue.

In Concord, North Carolina, urologist Dr. Richard Natale offers the UroLift® System, a minimally invasive approach for treating an enlarged prostate that utilizes tiny implants to lift and hold the enlarged prostate tissue out of the way so it no longer blocks the urethra. There is no cutting, heating, or removal of prostate tissue.

How Does UroLift Work?

The UroLift procedure is a short outpatient procedure that requires only local anesthesia. It may be performed in the office or an ambulatory surgery center. During the procedure, Dr. Natale inserts tiny implants within the prostate to hold the lobes apart and relieve compression on the urethra, which allows urine to flow normally again. Best of all, patients typically return home the same day without a catheter.1,2,3
