The 15-minute prostate fix

A British man has become the first patient in Europe to undergo ‘walk-in, walk-out’ prostate surgery – carried out while he was wide awake in an outpatient clinic. The procedure, for an enlarged prostate, requires only a local anaesthetic and the 76-year-old patient was allowed home just hours later.

It’s hoped the procedure will soon be offered at community clinics, benefiting thousands of men with prostate problems.

Those suffering from prostate enlargement, also known as benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), are currently offered major surgery as a last resort, which is effective but can cause loss of sexual function, bleeding and incontinence. Some are too frail for the operation, which is called transurethral resection of the prostate, or TURP.
