Urologix, LLC. develops, manufactures and markets minimally invasive office-based BPH therapies for the treatment of obstruction and symptoms due to Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH). Since the introduction of office-based therapies nearly 20 years ago, these two technologies have consistently demonstrated safe, efficacious and durable results for patients. Urologix, the market leader and most trusted name in minimally invasive BPH therapies, is proud to offer Cooled ThermoTherapy™ (CTT) and Prostiva® RF Therapy (Prostiva). These two technologies provide Urologists the versatility to treat the majority of prostate anatomies in the office, and provide clinically significant symptom score and flow rate improvement without need for re-treatment in over 90% and 86% of patients, respectively through 5 years.1,2

Urologix has a two-decade track record of providing long-lasting BPH relief to patients who desire an alternative to chronic medication.
“I have extensively used the various microwave-related prostate therapy machines (TherMatrx, Prolieve, Urologix), not only has the Urologix unit provided the longest duration of symptom improvement, it is the only machine that has left men with actual cavitation defects when viewed cystoscopically months after the treatment.” – Michael Lazar, MD
“Minimally invasive therapies are significantly more effective for relief of lower urinary tract symptoms than pharmacologic therapy as demonstrated in randomized clinical trials. Moreover, durability for both Cooled ThermoTherapy and Prostiva are well documented in the literature. Since 1988, I have treated more than 800 patients with Cooled ThermoTherapy and the retreatment rate for my patients after 14 years is only 14%. I believe that minimally invasive therapies for patients with symptomatic BPH should be the primary therapy because they provide more significant symptom relief and have durable results.” – Robert G. Pugach, MD
