Teleflex Celebrates June Men’s Health Month with Launch of UroLift Patient Ambassador Program

Teleflex

WAYNE, PA — Teleflex Incorporated (NYSE: TFX) announced that it is celebrating Men’s Health Month with the launch of the UroLift Patient Ambassador Program, a network of volunteers available to share their personal experiences living with BPH and why the UroLift System was the right treatment option for them. The company also announced that 350,000 patients from around the world have been treated with the UroLift® System,1<,sup> a proven, minimally invasive approach to treating benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), or enlarged prostate.

“In celebrating Men’s Health Month, we celebrate the 350,000 men who have taken charge of their health with the UroLift System. We are also excited to launch the UroLift Patient Ambassador Program, an important resource for men considering this treatment for their BPH symptoms,” said Kevin Hardage, President and General Manager, Teleflex Interventional Urology. “We encourage men considering this treatment option to reach out to an Ambassador to learn about their personal experiences.”

The UroLift Patient Ambassador Program is designed to connect people who are exploring minimally invasive BPH treatment options with men who are available to share their personal experiences with the UroLift System procedure. Through the program, individuals are given the opportunity to engage in one-on-one private phone conversations to ask questions and speak candidly with someone who has undergone the UroLift System procedure. This information, along with guidance from their physicians, can give men impacted by BPH the additional perspective needed to feel more confident and informed in their treatment decisions.

The program is being announced during Men’s Health Month, an annual observance that serves as an important reminder for men to prioritize their health and talk to their doctors about unresolved medical symptoms that may be affecting their daily lives. In the U.S. alone, approximately 12 million men are under a doctor’s care for BPH.2 This common, non-cancerous enlargement of the prostate occurs as men age and can interrupt sleep, cause urinary problems, and decrease quality of life.3 If left untreated, the condition can worsen over time and cause permanent bladder damage.4
