Based on physician feedback, it maintains the efficacy of the UroLift™ System, improves overall performance, and offers physicians the advantage of efficiently treating a broader range of patients.3 This expanded capability offered by UroLift™ 2 ATC opens new avenues for patient care.”

“The UroLift™ 2 ATC is a game-changer. Bringing the enhanced tissue control capabilities onto the innovative and proven UroLift™ 2 platform allows me to deliver unparalleled precision to treat a broad spectrum of patients and anatomies. It has transformed my approach to BPH care,” said Dr. Adam Craig Thomas of Parkview Physicians Group Urology in Fort Wayne, Indiana.

The UroLift™ System can be used to treat a broad spectrum of anatomies, including obstructive median lobe.5-6 It is the only leading BPH procedure shown to not cause new onset, sustained erectile or ejaculatory dysfunction.*7-8 A study conducted over 5 years showed a low retreatment rate of about 2-3% per year, or a total of 13.6% over the course of the study, demonstrating UroLift™ System durability.1 Most common side effects are temporary and can include hematuria, dysuria, micturition urgency, pelvic pain, and urge incontinence.9 Rare side effects, including bleeding and infection, may lead to a serious outcome and may require intervention.
