The London Clinic is one of the first hospitals in the UK to be treating patients with a new, pioneering therapy for non-cancerous enlargement of the prostate, a very common condition in older men.

More than a third of men over the age of 50 have an enlarged prostate, which can make if difficult for them to pass urine. Drugs or an operation can help, but the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) says men should now be offered another treatment option

Prostate artery embolisation (PAE) has been available at The London Clinic since early 2018, providing relief for patients with lower urinary tract symptoms caused by benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH).

The advantage of PAE is that it can be done under local anaesthetic as a day case, meaning patients can go home shortly afterwards without having to be admitted to hospital, unlike conventional prostate surgery.

To assess your suitability for treatment, please contact The London Clinic’s world-renowned Consultant Urologist, Professor Prokar Dasgupta, and Consultant Endovascular Radiologist, Dr Jocelyn Brookes.

Dr Brookes explains more about the therapy in this video.
