HoLEP Treatment

(Holmium Laser Enucleation of the Prostate)

A HoLEP procedure helps relieve symptoms affecting the urinary system caused by an enlarged prostate.

As we age, it’s common for many men to experience changes in their body, such as a swollen or enlarged prostate. Whilst some may not experience symptoms as a result of this, in some cases an enlarged prostate can place pressure on the urinary system and block the urethra, causing problems with passing urine.

If you have been experiencing difficulties passing urine, including frequent urination or changes to your urinary stream, your Consultant may recommend HoLEP to ease your symptoms.

Using state-of-the-art technology for a minimally invasive procedure

A holmium laser enucleation of the prostate (HoLEP) is a minimally invasive procedure to remove parts of the prostate that obstruct the urethra. Utilising the benefits of state-of-the-art technology, HoLEP requires a shorter recovery period and has a reduced risk of bleeding compared to alternative procedures.

The first step is to book a consultation with one of our specialists to discuss your symptoms and medical history. Your Consultant may need to carry out a prostate examination before recommending your options for treatment.
