Urolift

Avoid side-effects. Avoid a lifetime of medication. All without cutting.

Urolift for BPH, or Enlarged Prostate

What is Urolift?

Going to the bathroom all the time? Do you have to wait to get it going? Or do you dribble even after you try to finish completely? Are you on medications like Flomax or Finasteride for the rest of your life? If so, Urolift may be for you.

This is a procedure that does not involve cutting or removing tissue. Urolift is an in-office procedure used to treat urinary problems associated with an enlarged prostate (also called BPH, or benign prostate hyperplasia). Dr Kella has performed dozens of these procedures and was the first one in Texas to perform the procedure after it was approved. Read more



  • Quick and hardly any pain for me. The annoying drip after urinating and feeling like you can never empty disappeared after the procedure. I don't go through 3 pairs of underwear anymore.

Difference between Urolift and Rezum

Rezum and Urolift are both promising treatments for BPH. Rezum can treat a wide range of prostate types, including “median lobes.”  Urolift cannot treat median lobes. Both procedures can be done in the office, although Dr Kella will sometimes elect to do Urolift in the surgery center.

Dr Kella has the most combined experience with Rezum and Urolift in Texas. He has done nearly 100 Rezum cases and has done dozens of Urolifts. These procedures represent a new option for patients. Patients who are afraid of surgery can now have a quick procedure leading to years of relief. Patients who do not want to be on medication for the rest of their life have a great option as well.
