This is a minimally invasive procedure using a laser, rather than cautery. The advantages of laser treatment include:
Lower risk of loss of erectile function
A shorter hospital stay (either as a day case or 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.
