Following years of medication use that caused unpleasant side effects, Steve decided he was ready for an alternative, minimally invasive treatment option.
He made an appointment with urologist, Dr. Philip Weintraub, of Urology Medical Group.
Steve’s main concern was the efficacy of the UroLift System. Dr. Weintraub explained, “The UroLift System is a proven treatment option for BPH (benign prostatic hyperplasia), or enlarged prostate, and has clinical data demonstrating through five years, patients continue to experience symptom relief with minimal side effect.” He also informed Steve that “Many people who undergo the UroLift System procedure are also able to discontinue the use of medication.” With that, Steve had made his decision. They scheduled the appointment.Dr. Weintraub entered the consultation room and said, “Hey Mr. Gadget, I’ve got a gadget for you – the UroLift® System!” When Steve learned about the many benefits of the UroLift System procedure and that it is less invasive than alternative options like TURP, he knew he had found a treatment that might work for him.
