Holmium laser enucleation of the prostate (HoLEP) can alleviate symptoms you're experiencing .due to a large prostate. Book an appointment online today
The HoLEP procedure is suitable for men of any ages whose symptoms are due to a large prostate and can be used even if using medication that thins the blood.
After the excess tissue is removed, the surgeon will insert a catheter which is usually removed the following morning.
The procedure can be carried under general anaesthetic or regional (spinal) anaesthetic should you wish to remain awake.
Your consultant urologist will be able to inform you on the potential complications of the procedure based on your situation.
If you suffer from an enlarged prostate or benign prostate dysplasia, there are several treatment options available, depending on the intensity of your symptoms:
In the first 10 to 14 days there might be a mild burning feeling when trying to pass the urine. This will pass once the urethra will heal from the surgery and the catheter will be removed. You will be able to go home once you will be able to pass urine more comfortably.
Your consultant urologist or nurse will be able to advise on the proper care once at home and what pelvic floor exercises you can perform to improve your bladder control.
