ITV News covers the story of Nick, a man with an enlarged prostate which caused him to ‘to-and-fro’ to the loo many times during the night, meaning he never got a good night’s sleep.
The UroLift system was the answer to his problem. Brought to the UK by South West Andology Consultant, Raj Persad, this new treatment means that surgery for this condition is now much less invasive. A treasury tag style clip lifts or holds 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.
