Midtown Urology Associates today announced that Drs. Michael Trotter and Brian Mazzarella of Midtown Urology Associates have been designated as UroLift® Centers of Excellence. The designation recognizes that Dr. Trotter and Dr. Mazzarella have demonstrated a commitment to exemplary care for men suffering from urinary tract symptoms due to benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) and have achieved a high level of training and experience with the UroLift System.

This condition occurs as the prostate gland that surrounds the male urethra becomes enlarged, exerting pressure on the urethra and restricting or blocking urine flow.

After five years, patients treated with the UroLift System continue to experience symptom relief with minimal side effects, with few patients requiring an additional procedure for relief. A second randomized clinical trial called BPH6 demonstrated that the minimally invasive UroLift System compares very well to the reference standard surgery, transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP), with regard to efficacy, and is superior to TURP at preserving sexual function and offering a…
