Southland Urology is the first dual Center of Excellence for the UroLift procedure. We are one of the largest volume UroLift providers in Southern California.
The UroLift System
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 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 the office and typically takes about 20 minutes. Most patients return home the same day without a catheter.

Your Southland Urology physician will help you understand whether you are a good candidate for the UroLift. On average about 75% of patients are candidates for the UroLift procedure. For more information please contact us.
The doctors of Southland Urology will discuss UroLift therapy at a St. Jude Medical Center community presentation on July 16th at 6 p.m. Most men over 60 have symptoms of an enlarged prostate. Symptoms include frequent urination, slow urination, and getting up at nighttime. UroLift is a revolutionary treatment option for symptoms of an enlarged prostate. This presentation will focus on why most men are eligible for the treatment and how it stacks up against other treatment options.

The prostate gland is an integral part of the male reproductive system. About the size of a walnut, it continues to change and grow during a man’s lifetime. Maintaining prostate health should be of maximum importance to all men if they want to lead a long and healthy life.
