Patient Testimonials

Here’s what our patients say after receiving the UroLift treatment at University Urology Associates. These results are typical.

Dr. Elterman,

Fantastic results. I want to thank you and your staff for all the care and assistance provided me throughout the procedure and thereafter. I had been with a catheter for three (3) months following knee replacement surgery on account of prostate difficulty. I conducted research and determined if I was a candidate, the UroLift procedure was best suited for me. In this manner, I could avoid the effects of after surgery — lots of pain, long recovery, lack of energy, etc.. As well, I could avoid any possibility of incontinence and loss of sex ability, both of which are real possibilities with the most common procedure, the TURP. Having just come off knee surgery, I was quite aware of these difficulties. With the urolift I avoided all of the above. The procedure was conducted on a Thursday afternoon. I was back at home a couple of hours later that evening, and was back at work the Monday immediate following.

I would recommend the urolift procedure for any male who meets the qualifications for the procedure. I went from fearing at least a two (2) week to three (3) month recovery period for surgery to a three (3) to four (4) day recovery period. My prostate problems are a thing of the past. Again, thank you. I will be glad to speak to any of your patients who are considering this procedure if they so choose.



Hi, Dr. Elterman,
Just letting you know that [patient’s name – redacted] is a really happy camper after his UroLift procedure. He sleeps through the night for the first time in years, says he had absolutely no pain at all, and feels like a new man. Hope this will continue; we thought you’d like to know.

Thanks again and all the best.

Well, I am sure it will not surprise you that I write to express my delighted satisfaction with the [UroLift] procedure.

Not as easy as advertised, but worth it.

Thanks to you and your team. The nurses were so professional without being cold, and minimized the inevitable embarrassment. Please, thank them for me too.

Dr. Dean Elterman,

I’m writing to you this morning to give you updates on the state of my condition following the UroLift procedure that you’ve performed on me on May 6th. It’s been 3 weeks now and I must tell you how much this has changed my life. First, I did follow your recommendation to remove the catheter after the chemo treatment on Friday. That gave enough time for healing, plus there was no bleeding, no pain and no problem getting control back to urinate. I had a bit of blood the first 2 days and a bit of discomfort but nothing serious. After that and since then I feel like I am 40 again.

This procedure was the best thing to do for someone in my condition, doing chemo and not having to worry about healing [from] a surgical operation or infections. You did a great job Dr. Elterman, this is a success story so far. You and your team are real professionals, from Mrs. Deborah Patrick who took care of my case from the beginning, to nurse Peggy who really made sure I was comfortable during and after the procedure. Overall, the whole experience for me was worth it.

Have a good day doctor, I’m having a great one…

Dear Dr. Elterman,
The results are more than I expected. I haven’t seen a stream like I am producing in almost 20 years and you know I started with this issue quite young.

The [UroLift] procedure went as you explained which gave me a lot of confidence.
You and your head nurse Deborah are an amazing team.

Thank you,
