Benign Prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), a condition that interferes with the flow of urine through the urethra, is the most common prostate problem for men older than 50. Judd Boczko, MD, is one of the first physicians in the area to offer UroLift, a noninvasive, in-office procedure cleared by the FDA in 2013. Small implants are placed through a small needle to lift or hold the enlarged prostate out of the way and increase the opening of the urethra. UroLift has the fewest side effects of all the current surgical treatments (which can sometimes result in impotence or incontinence), and there’s usually no need for a urinary catheter post-procedure. Almost all patients can return to work the next day (with restrictions on heavy lifting and bicycle riding for about one week).
