Prairie Lakes Healthcare System is one of the first facilities in South Dakota to implant a UroLift System, a less invasive option to relieve symptoms of an enlarged prostate.
Dr. Henri Lanctin, Urologist, implanted the first UroLift System on Monday, February 1st. The UroLift System is a new treatment option for Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (enlarged prostate) patients who are looking for an alternative to drugs or major surgery. Typically patients can go home on the same day of the procedure and see rapid symptom relief.
Over 500 million men suffer from Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia. Having an enlarged prostate is not associated with prostate cancer and is not life threatening, but can affect the urinary tract. Symptoms of an enlarged prostate can impact the quality of life and may result in the loss of sleep. The UroLift System is the first and only treatment that does not remove prostate tissue and does not negatively impact a man’s sexual function.
