Holmium Laser Enucleation Of The Prostate

Holmium Laser Enucleation of the prostate (HoLEP) is a modern alternative to the standard Transurethral Resection of the Prostate (TURP) procedure for bladder outflow obstruction due to BPH.

Transurethral Resection of the Prostate (TURP)

A transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP) is a surgical procedure that removes portions of the prostate gland through the penis. A TURP requires no external incision.

TURis Plasma Vaporization

The Prostate gland is at the base of the Bladder and surrounds the urinary passage (urethra). The normal function of the gland is to produce some of the seminal fluid, which is expressed with ejaculation.

Blood in the semen (haematospermia)

If you see blood in your semen, you should contact your GP for further advice although it is unlikely that there is a worrying underlying cause

Erectile Dysfunction (impotence)

Your GP will normally wish to review both you & your partner together and several visits may be needed before a full picture of the problem can be obtained.

Fertility Problems

If you have been trying unsuccessfully to produce a pregnancy for 1-2 years, without using any form of contraception, you should contact your GP for further advice.

Testicular Lump

If you find a lump inside the scrotum, not arising from the skin of the scrotum itself, you should contact your GP immediately for further advice.

Raised PSA

If you have a raised PSA or you have been told that your prostate feels abnormal, you should contact your GP or your urologist for further advice.

Prostate Symptoms

The prostate gland lies just beneath the bladder and is normally about the size of a chestnut. The urethra (water pipe) runs through the middle of the prostate.

Premature Ejaculation

What should I do if I have premature ejaculation? If your ejaculation is earlier than desired (before or soon after penetration) with minimal stimulation and you have little control over it, you should consider seeking further advice from your GP.
