UroLift® System for BPH Treatment in Gilbert, AZ
Enlarged Prostate Treatment
Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) is a very common condition in men especially when they begin to approach a mature age of 60 or above. Symptoms of BPH include difficulty urinating and having to urinate more than 8 times a day. Individuals with an enlarged prostate may also feel the need to urinate in the middle of the night, or struggle to completely empty their bladder after using the bathroom.
Medications can help to manage this condition, but when BPH symptoms start to cause more issues in your day to day life it may be time to consider other treatment options. Dr. Frank Simoncini and his associates at Southeast Valley Urology have been deemed a UroLift Center of Excellence and are highly skilled in utilizing the UroLift System to effectively treat BPH. Dr. Simoncini has used UroLift to help hundreds of men in the greater Phoenix area. UroLift is a minimally invasive procedure that can help you get back to your life & resume daily activities with minimal downtime.

How Does The UroLift® System Work?
The UroLift® System uses a revolutionary approach to treating BPH that lifts and holds the enlarged prostate tissue so it no longer blocks the urethra. It is the only available BPH treatment performed by a urologist that does not require heating, cutting, or removal of the prostate tissue. The procedure is typically performed using local anesthesia in a physician’s office or ambulatory surgery center. Patients typically return home the same day without a catheter.1
