Urology refers to the management of conditions than can affect your bladder and prostate. Your prostate is small gland that generates a fluid to help create semen. However, prostate problems are common and often affect men over the age of 50. Your prostate can become enlarged (prostate enlargement) or swollen due to inflammation (prostatitis). An enlarged prostate can put pressure on your bladder and urethra (the tube that allows urine to leave your body).  

Bladder problems can also impact your ability to urinate. If you’re suffering from a urinary tract infection or bladder stones, you might experience blood in your urine and pain while urinating. We are proud to facilitate specialist urologists, who can help assess your symptoms and help maintain the health of your bladder or prostate. Our urology specialists will perform tests to diagnose your condition and recommend treatments.  

The most common types of bladder and prostrate problems you might need treatment for include:

Reversing a vasectomy: A vasectomy is a permanent procedure that prevents you from having children. It involves cutting the tubes that carry sperm from your testicles to form semen. A vasectomy reversal may be able to reverse the procedure.

Urinary tract infections (UTIs)
: These are infections usually caused by faecal bacteria entering your urinary tract. It can cause a burning sensation while urinating and an increased need to urinate. A cystoscopy can be carried out to identify the cause of recurring UTIs.

Benign prostate enlargement (BPE): This refers to an enlarged prostate. It can lead to difficulty urinating and an increased urge to urinate. A trans-urethral resection of the prostate (TURP) can treat an enlarged prostate.

Urethral stricture: This refers to the narrowing of your urethra — the tube that allows urine to leave your body. It can cause recurring UTIs and reduce the flow of your urine. A urethrotomy can be performed to treat a urethral stricture. 

Treatment for urology problems with BMI Healthcare will be carried out by our multidisciplinary team, comprising dedicated urology Consultants, endocrinologists, dietitians and more.  

Our specialist Consultants at BMI Healthcare hospitals will discuss your symptoms and carry out diagnostic tests to identify the cause of your bladder or prostate problems. If further diagnostic tests or treatments are needed, this will be fully explained to you by your Consultant. 

A vasectomy reversal  

Your urology specialist will make two incisions (about 3cm long) on both sides of your scrotum. The tubes that carry sperm to your testes will be located and freed. Any scar tissue will also be removed, and the ends of your tubes will be stitched back together. The NHS reveals the longer it has been since your vasectomy, the more scar tissue you may have on the tubes that carry your sperm. If you have a vasectomy reversal within three years of having a vasectomy, the success rate of a vasectomy reversal is about 75% .   


During a cystoscopy, a cystoscope is passed through your urethra and into your bladder to show the inside of your bladder. Specialist instruments can be passed through the cystoscope to treat certain bladder problems. A cystoscopy can be used to determine the cause of blood in your urine, urinary tract infections, and help remove bladder stones.  

Trans-urethral resection of the prostate (TURP) 

TURP involves placing a resectoscope (a small metal tube with a camera, light and wire loop) through your urethra and into your prostate. Your urologist will heat the wire loop to remove the enlarged parts of your prostate, that are putting pressure on your urethra.  


A urethrotomy is used to open a urethral stricture (a narrowing in your urethra that is formed of scar tissue). A cystoscope will be passed into your urethra. Your urologist will use a laser or blade to make an internally cut the scar tissue, and open up your stricture .
