About Mr Marc E Laniado


Mr Marc Laniado is a consultant urologist specialising in the diagnosis and treatment of men with prostate enlargement (BPH) and cancer.

His aim is to return men to a normal life quickly with the least side effects. Being a consultant since 2002 in the full-time direct clinical care of patients, without other distractions, he has great experience and expertise in the treatment for urinary symptoms due to the prostate (BPH) and the problems associated with prostate cancer. Marc Laniado offers an individualised approach for each man with either prostate enlargement or prostate cancer, tailoring the tests or treatments to the specific values of the man he sees.

For men with urinary symptoms due to BPH, Marc Laniado advises men on lifestyle changes and medications. Where these are unsuccessful, he performs day-case procedures that alleviate urinary symptoms without affecting ejaculation (UroLift, Rezum). Some men have unsuitable prostates and need a HoLEP (Holmium Laser Enucleation of the Prostate) and Aquablation These are performed as day-case sometimes or overnight stay (> 50 cases a year). To preserve normal ejaculation in selected men, Marc Laniado has modified the procedure successfully.
