“Dr Laniado has been recommended by my GP, who's been trying to find a reason for my symptoms for many years. Despite being referred to several urologists, none of them came close to how precise, professional, patient and helpful Dr Laniado was. After a very thorough interview he scheduled several tests and suggested few solutions to ease my symptoms whilst I'm waiting for the results. Needless to say that none of the "specialists" I have previously seen have done any of it, nor made any suggestions or offered any solutions. I'm over the moon that I finally managed to find someone who cares and is willing to dig deep to find a source of my problem.“

    About

    Mr Marc Laniado is an excellent Consultant Urological surgeon and the prostate cancer chairman of the prostate cancer multidisciplinary team at the HCA Princess Grace Hospital. He specialises in the diagnosis and treatment of men with prostate cancer and urinary symptoms due to an enlarged prostate (BPH). He offers an individualised approach, 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 keeping ejaculation (UroLift, Rezum). Some men have unsuitable prostates and need a HoLEP (Holmium Laser Enucleation of the Prostate) or Aquablation, which can also preserve erections and ejaculation. Mr Laniado uses an en-bloc technique with early apical sphincter release and a Moses 2.0 holmium laser at the Princess Grace Hospital for best results.

    To help men have fewer side effects from radiotherapy, He does SpaceOAR/Barrigel insertions under local anaesthetic.

    Prostate cancer is increasingly common and many men are diagnosed with small cancer potentially suitable for partial ablation, which is also known as focal therapy. For appropriate men, Mr Laniado performs High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU), which preserves continence and erections in most men. He started HIFU in 2005.

    Mr Laniado trained in open prostatectomy, started laparoscopic prostatectomies in 2006 and moved onto robotic prostatectomies in 2008/9. He switched from the anterior approach for robotic prostatectomy to the Retzius-sparing technique at the end of 2016. Retzius-sparing prostatectomy, in his experience, allows men to quickly recover bladder control and preserve the structures needed for an erection.

    Mr Laniado trains other surgeons in robotic prostatectomy in the European School at Royal Berkshire Hospital. He has driven the development of multiparametric MRI and MRI-targeted fusion biopsies of the prostate to diagnose men accurately. He started MRI-targeted biopsies in 2012 and does over two hundred MRI-targeted fusion biopsies a year. He introduced Retzius sparing prostatectomy at the end of 2016 as his preserved surgical technique as patients recover bladder control and erections faster than normal technique. He does about 100 Retzius-sparing prostatectomies a year.

    Mr Laniado grew up in North London and is married with two children. He enjoys windsurfing in Poole, tennis, running and walking his labradors in Windsor Great Park amongst other locations.

    Bedside Manner (5/5)
    Explanation (5/5)
    I needed surgical treatment for BPH in order to improve my urine flow. Mr Laniado carefully outlined the treatment options, with clear, balanced and factual information, which enabled me to make an informed decision to opt for aquablation, a relatively new procedure. Because of the time he took to talk me through the procedure itself and the likely recovery process, there were no surprises and my anxiety about having the procedure was much reduced. My check up with Mr Laniado 4 weeks after the procedure showed that it was a complete success, and I am very pleased with the outcome and pleasantly surprised at how quick and relatively pain-free the recovery process was.

    Explanation (5/5)
    Mr Laniado was highly recommended to me. The moment we began to consult I felt in good hands. Mr Laniado is very thorough in his explanations and highest standards approach to all aspects of treatment. The communications verbally and by way of support literature pre treatment were excellent covering both procedures, a Biopsy and a Prostatectomy The teams demonstrate the respect they have for him, that matters, and fills you with confidence that everyone is pulling together. Our consultations and treatment spanned weekends and whilst out of the country and he is obviously very dedicated to his patients. We begin our post prostatectomy journey now.

    "Marc is a very special Urologist (and friend). He has consistently worked harder and managed to master more state of the art treatments than anyone else I know. He is passionate about giving patients accurate details that relate to their situation, he is always prepared to refer patients onto other urologists who may be better suited to that case, he is always trying to be as accurate as possible. He pioneered the view the you need precision diagnostics to offer precision treatments. Great urologist!"
