Procedures offered for prostate surgery at Spire Manchester

We offer a variety of treatments for prostate surgery. Treatment choices available to you will depend on your condition and your general health. Your consultant will discuss which treatment is best for you.

The type of anaesthetic you need varies depending on the procedure you need. It may be:

  • A general anaesthetic meaning you’re asleep – this is most often used
  • A spinal or epidural – where you can’t feel anything from the waist down
  • A local anaesthetic – you’ll be awake but you won’t be able to feel anything in the area being operated on

Rezum

  • Rezum is a minimally invasive treatment to relieve urinary symptoms by destroying prostate tissue
  • Preserves sexual and urinary functions
  • Daycase procedure

Transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP)

  • A special instrument is passed through your urethra and a small, electrically-heated wire is used to trim small pieces of prostate tissue
  • Performed under general anaesthetic
  • You’ll need a urinary catheter for around one to three days after the operation and may also need bladder irrigation

Prostate artery embolisation (PAE)

  • Shrinks the size of your prostate by blocking the arteries that feed it
  • Performed using local anaesthetic
  • A urinary catheter isn’t usually required

Every treatment has its own benefits and risks which your consultant will explain to you during your consultation.

Preparing for prostate surgery at Spire Manchester

Coming into hospital

The hospital is close to the city centre, with Manchester Piccadilly and Victoria train stations being approximately 20 minutes in a taxi and only 10 minutes from Manchester Airport. There’s free parking available for you and your visitors.

Meeting your consultant

You’ll meet your consultant in one of our consultation rooms. You’ll discuss:

  • Your symptoms and medical history
  • If your consultant requires any additional tests or scans to help plan your treatment
  • Alternative treatments or lifestyle changes which may help
  • What the treatment involves and procedure options
  • Potential benefits and risks of prostate surgery

You may also need a pre-operative assessment with a specialist nurse before going ahead with treatment. This is to ensure you're fit and well enough for surgery.

Prostate surgery: your procedure

You’ll usually stay with us for two to three nights so you’ll be shown to your own en-suite room before your operation. All of our private rooms have:

  • TV
  • En-suite
  • Window
  • Armchair
  • Free WiFi

The procedure lasts for around 90 minutes. If you’ve come with a friend or family member, they’re welcome to wait in our lounge or restaurant while you have your operation.

You may need a urinary catheter after the operation. This is because your urethra may be swollen which can block urine from passing. It will be removed before you leave hospital.
