Vero Beach, FLA (Feb. 27, 2017) — Indian River Medical Center (IRMC) is proud to announce that the UroLift® System is now available with Marc Rose, M.D. UroLift is the first permanent implant to treat symptoms due to urinary outflow obstruction secondary to benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) in men 50 years of age or older. Cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in 2013, the UroLift System is designed to relieve symptoms caused by an enlarged prostate while preserving sexual function.

“IRMC is committed to providing patients with the highest quality, most effective options to address their urology needs,” said Dr. Rose. “The UroLift System has an excellent safety profile and provides men suffering from an enlarged prostate a beneficial first-line treatment alternative to drug therapy or more invasive surgery. Importantly, the UroLift System provides fast and meaningful relief from BPH symptoms, improving overall quality of life for our patients.”

The UroLift System implants, delivered during a minimally-invasive procedure, create a channel separating the lobes of an enlarged prostate to open a pathway for urine flow. Patients recover from the procedure quickly and return to their normal routines with minimal downtime.

Data from clinical trials showed that patients receiving UroLift implants reported rapid symptomatic improvement, improved urinary flow rates, and sustained sexual function. Patients also experienced a significant improvement in quality of life

Dr. Rose is seeing patients at the Health and Wellness Center at Indian River Medical Center at 3450 11th Court, Suite 303, Vero Beach, FL.  To schedule an appointment, call 772-567-3003.
