UroLift® Center of Excellence
Riccardo Ricciardi, Jr., MD has been designated as a UroLift® Center of Excellence. The designation recognizes that Dr. Ricciardi has achieved a high level of training and experience with the UroLift System and demonstrated a commitment to exemplary care for men suffering from symptoms associated with benign prostatic hyperplasia or BPH. He finds it rewarding to be able to offer his patients a breakthrough treatment option that offers real long-term results.
The UroLift® System is a truly minimally-invasive therapy for BPH. It can be performed in-office under local anesthesia without heating, cutting or removal of prostate tissue. Patients are able to get back to their normal routines quickly and can discontinue the use of medications.
Five-year data from a randomized study shows the UroLift® System offers not only rapid improvement, but also durable relief for patients with BPH.
Christina, Nurse Navigator for Dr. Ricciardi’s patients, is available to provide information to help patients better understand BPH as a condition, discuss the therapy options and how Urolift® can be integrated into their treatment plan.
