The Urolift Procedure

This is a ‘NICE approved’ minimally invasive alternative to medication or invasive surgery for men with prostate-related urinary symptoms. This is suitable for men who are having worsening waterworks symptoms related to an enlarged prostate that do not wish to be on lifelong medication, suffering with side effects from medication, or do not wish to have an invasive operation.

The procedure is performed under local anaesthetic, commonly with some sedation, taking 10-15minutes, and all men go home the same day. There is no effect on sexual function, and no risk of scar formation, as opposed to the traditional inpatient ‘TURP’. Matt set up this service in 2017, and has performed this successful procedure on nearly 100 patients. He has developed an online video on this, has provided regular seminars for the public and GPs, and been interviewed for BBC Spotlight and Cornwall Living Magazine.
