He has helped develop medical and surgical techniques to aid the treatment of male sexual dysfunction. He specializes in robotic surgery as well as High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU). Dr. Tortora also performs the UroLift® procedure in the office setting. The UroLift treatment is a revolutionary, minimally invasive approach to treating an enlarged prostate, or BPH in men, that lifts or holds the enlarged prostate tissue out of the way so it no longer blocks the urethra. There is no cutting, heating or removal of prostate tissue.
