Making Too Many Pit Stops? It May Be Time to Consult Your Urologist

As a professional driver in the Bay Area, Christopher Taylor, 74, is constantly on the road. Unfortunately, his rides were often interrupted by unplanned bathroom breaks. When Christopher noticed that these frequent pit stops were disrupting his routes, he decided it was time to make a change.
Frequent urination can be a symptom of an enlarged prostate due to benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), commonly known as an enlarged prostate. As the prostate enlarges, it can press on and even block the urethra, causing bothersome urinary symptoms. In addition to frequent urination, these symptoms may include feeling an urgent need to urinate, difficulty in starting urination, straining to urinate, weak urine flow, and burning or pain during urination.1,2 BPH is a benign condition and unrelated to prostate cancer, but it can significantly impact a man’s quality of life and alter daily routines.3

Christopher first noticed urinary symptoms more than a decade ago, and eventually they started to impact his job. His frequent trips to the bathroom became so predictable that he had to plan ahead. “I knew all the restroom stops on my routes with clients – whether a gas station or coffee shop – they became a part of my routine,” he said.

There are many men like Christopher experiencing the disruptive symptoms of BPH. In fact, more than 42 million men in the U.S. have BPH.4

After suffering from symptoms for several years, Christopher was motivated to find an answer. One of his clients is a founder of the company that invented the UroLift® System, now the most commonly performed minimally invasive BPH procedure in the U.S.4 He referred Christopher to a local urologist who evaluated Christopher’s condition. Together, Christopher and his doctor agreed that the UroLift® System was the best choice for treating his BPH.

“I couldn’t be happier with my results,” said Christopher. “The UroLift® System procedure helped reduce the number of pit stops I had to make during my drives. The procedure was simple and has completely changed how I go about my day. I sleep much better and go to the bathroom less often at night,” he added.

Now, Christopher has more control over his daily routes for clients and doesn’t stress about having to make pit stops along the way. He was so impressed with his results that he signed on to become a UroLift® System Ambassador, a network of volunteer patients available to share their journey with BPH with others.*
