iTind (Temporarily Implanted Nitinol Device)

A Minimally Invasive Treatment for BPH

iTind (Temporarily Implanted Nitinol Device) is a minimally invasive therapy that utilizes a temporary device to gently reshape the urethra, widening the opening so urine can flow freely. After 5 to 7 days, the device is completely removed, resulting in rapid symptom relief. The treatment is straightforward, does not require overnight hospitalization, and has none of the side effects associated with prescription medication. Recovery is fast and after the device is removed, most people go back to their normal active lifestyle in a day or two.

How iTind Works

Your urologist will place the iTind device in your prostate, using a cystoscope. Over the next 5-7 days, the device reshapes your prostate improving urine flow. At the end of the treatment period, iTind is completely removed. You should go home without the need for a catheter and you should see results right away.
