Laser Prostate Surgery

Contact: (0191) 213 7661 – Mr M. Shaw Consultant Urologist

Because it is a minimally invasive procedure using a laser, rather than surgery, the advantages of laser treatment include:

  • lower risk of loss of erectile function
  • a shorter hospital stay (usually an inpatient stay of less than 24 hours)
  • less bleeding & lower risk of requirement for blood transfusion
  • less requirement for a urethral catheter

More information about what you can expect when you have laser treatment is available under HoLEP surgery.

If you would like to discuss this service in more detail, a referral can be made by your GP or by the urology department at your local hospital.

Our consultant urologists who offer HoLEP surgery are Mr M Shaw, Miss A O’ Riordan and Mr T Page.
