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.

For men who need therapy for prostate cancer, Marc Laniado offers: 

 

  • Prolaris:  a special way of analysing prostate biopsies that better determines if cancer is very low-risk
  • Focal therapy with HIFU when appropriate, as it preserves bladder control and erections. If the cancer is unsuitable, he offers either brachytherapy in conjunction with Dr Paul Rogers at the Royal Berkshire Hospital.
  • Retzius-sparing prostatectomy is the best surgical technique for the early recovery of urinary continence. A suprapubic rather a urethral catheter is also used. He 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. He does this for all patients, as it gives the quickest recovery of bladder control, especially when combined with full functional urethral length preservation, which is a surgical technique to preserve the sphincter (valve) muscle. Marc does nerve sparing whenever possible and checks the surgical margins intraoperatively with frozen section to ensure the surgical margins are negative. This allows more nerve sparing to be performed, and so more erections to be preserved. Marc does about 100 cases a year.

 

Marc Laniado is the prostate cancer lead at Wexham Park Hospital (Frimley Health), where 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 (80 to 100 cases a year). He is the primary investigator at Wexham Park for several prostate cancer clinical trials.

By continually increasing his knowledge and awareness of developments in surgical treatments for urological conditions, he brings his expertise and experience to the patient by introducing them into his regular practice, ensuring that patients receive the very best care.  

After having graduated from Guy's and St Thomas' medical school, Mr Laniado studied on urological training schemes in London and spent a period at the Cleveland Clinic. He has since gained further recognition and awarded further qualifications and an award from The British Urological Foundation Fellowship, Gilbert Bursary and other awards.

Mr Laniado is a true expert - he goes the extra mile, even in the late evening.In my opinion, his advice and actions are carefully considered and carefully cross-checked with his own excellent ultrasound scanner and other tests. A Doctor to be cherished.

Marc Laniado performed a radical robotic prostatectomy on me at the beginning of July 2019 . When I first met him a few months earlier when my prostate cancer was first diagnosed he impressed me with his honesty and clarity about my unwanted illness. Compared to many other surgeons and doctors I have previously dealt with this was a welcome relief . The operation was as successful as it could be and my recovery has proceeded quicker than I could have hoped for. Any of my post operation fears were quickly allayed by a comforting phone call . The post operation follow up has been without fault . I would highly recommend Mr Marc Laniado to any of my friends and family if they are unfortunate enough to need this surgery . Apart from being a fine surgeon , he is a fine gentleman with an excellent bedside matter and genuinely cares about his patients.

With an early prostate cancer diagnosis back in August 2018, I was on 'watchful waiting' until my PSA level started to rise in early 2019. As a result I had robotic radical prostatectomy following clear and relaxed advice from Mr Laniado. With this process being developed and improved all the time, the combination of the Retzius sparing technique, frozen section checking during the operation, and a 'super-pubic' catheter all allowed for amazingly fast post op recovery with no pain to speak of! I couldn't recommend Mr. Laniado highly enough, and will forever be grateful for his guidance and skill through this whole process. A Big Thank You.

Following prostate cancer diagnosis in early May 2019 I underwent robotic radical prostatectomy later that month under the care of Mr Laniado and his excellent team. Mr Laniado is obviously expert and highly skilled in specialising in the Retzius sparing technique applied in my case, which I now understand and appreciate can greatly assist in post operative recovery. The operation went according to plan and I suffered minimal post operative pain and the aftercare has been exemplary. The potential incontinence side effects, which he carefully explained to me, have been minimal and I was ‘dry’ without the need for pads within a couple of weeks of the surgery and building in confidence daily. I would wholeheartedly recommend Mr. Laniado to any man needing guidance or treatment for prostate related problems. Many thanks.

From the outset Mr Laniado clearly and carefully explained the processes and options around the various tests and procedures related to my prostrate problems. All tests were undertaken in a way to put me at ease and, once a diagnosis of prostrate enlargement was confirmed, the various remedial options were fully explained and discussed in a pressure free environment. I opted for the HoLEP procedure which went smoothly and was followed up with the necessary post operative care and tests. I would fully recommend Mr Laniado.

It is 3 weeks since I had an Aquablation procedure for an enlarged prostrate due to BPH carried out by Mr Laniado at the Weymouth Street Hospital. The results have been excellent with improved urinary flow and less requirement to pass urine, especially at night. Discomfort when passing urine lasted approximately 2 weeks and was eased in the first few days with either paracetamol or codeine. Mr Laniado thoroughly explained the various treatment options available and I would commend him on his excellent skill and professionalism which he has demonstrated throughout.

I had a Holmium laser bladder neck incision operation under Mr Laniado and am very pleased with the care and highly skilled expertise that he has demonstrated. He fully explained the options available and the details of the procedure. There was no pressure and I was fully consulted at all stages leading up to the operation. The operation has been a complete success and I am feeling the benefits already just one month after it. This I put down to the skill of Mr Laniado and I have no hesitation at recommending Mr Laniado to carry out this procedure.

I underwent a robotic radical prostatectomy in January 2019. From the time of my first consultation and subsequent diagnosis Mr. Laniado showed great empathy and compassion. His manner was exemplary and his expertise in this specialist area hugely impressive. He explained everything in appropriate detail, was patient, and reassuring about the likely outcomes of the various options. As for the operation itself, everything went very smoothly and according to plan. I suffered little pain afterwards and the side effects were minimal compared with the list of 'what could happen' that surgeons are obliged to provide. He came to see me several times in the short time I remained in hospital after the operation. He is obviously someone at the pinnacle of his calling in this very specialist and complex cutting-edge surgery. His follow-up after-care has been equally top-notch. I would wholeheartedly commend Mr. Laniado to anyone needing guidance or treatment for prostate troubles
