Urolift Procedure Now Offered at UPMC in Wellsboro
Jeffrey Ranta, MD, urologist, now provides the UroLift® procedure as a treatment option for men diagnosed with Benign prostatic hyperplasia, also known as prostate gland enlargement, in Wellsboro. This minimally invasive treatment provides the patient with a quicker return to daily activity, symptom relief, and continued preservation of urological health.
“Offering this innovative, new procedure will improve quality of life and enhance patient outcomes,” said Dr. Ranta. “This procedure is ideal for patients with enlarged prostate causing lower urinary symptoms looking for an alternative to treatment via medication or surgery to remove part of the enlarged prostate gland.”
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.
