  2. Your stress urinary incontinence has persisted for at least 12 months after your prostate surgery.
  3. You have not adequately responded to conservative treatments.

Dr. Gange proudly offers ProACT™ as a treatment for male incontinence. More than 8,000 men have been implanted with ProACT to date. The first patients were implanted in the year 2000 and there is published data on five-year average follow-up with positive long-term results.1,2.

I have seen Dr. Gange for a number of years and developed the typical symptoms associated with an enlarged prostate. During my annual urologist visit, Dr. Gange laid out my options. After doing some personal research, I elected to have the Urolift procedure performed by Dr. Gange on an outpatient basis.

The procedure was uncomfortable but not particularly painful compared to other surgeries I have had. Recovery was relatively quick and I was back at work after two days of rest.

I did experience some significant discomfort associated with urination but was counseled that I was not drinking enough water. Once I increased my consumption of water, most of the discomfort went away and I was back to normal after about two weeks.

In the wake of the surgery, the urgency to urinate has gone away. The interval between trips to the bathroom has lengthened significantly such that I usually get up to urinate only once each night and sometimes not at all.

Having talked with others who have had more drastic prostate surgery, I feel that the Urolift procedure was much less stressful and the results were as hoped for.
