Lasers simplify prostate surgery at Spire Wellesley Hospital

Many men will face ‘waterworks’ problems as they age. Frequently the cause of this common condition is a benign prostate disorder. Spire Wellesley Hospital has introduced a new laser treatment for benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), which has fewer side effects and a shorter recovery time than traditional treatment methods.

Until recently the standard treatment for benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) was transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP). Now, the latest developments in laser treatment have reduced invasiveness and are proving more effective.

The Spire Wellesley Hospital can provide laser treatment using the holmium laser. This technique uses laser energy to relieve enlarged prostate symptoms through minimally invasive keyhole surgery. Patients experience minimal pain after the operation and little risk of bleeding.

This results in shorter operating times, better results and a lower risk of side effects. Many patients are able to go home the day after surgery and can resume normal activities within a week.

At the Spire Wellesley Hospital your safety and wellbeing are our most important considerations. We work in partnership with first class local consultants. All our surgeons are on the specialist register of the General Medical Council.

Alongside our highly experienced surgeons, we pride ourselves in providing a high standard of pre and post-operative care with outstanding clinical facilities for both day cases and overnight stays.
