    About

    Mr. Marc Laniado is a excellent Consultant Urological surgeon and the prostate cancer lead at Wrexham park hospital and the 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 without affecting ejaculation (UroLift, Rezum). Some men have unsuitable prostates and need a HoLEP (Holmium Laser Enucleation of the Prostate) and Aquablation, which can also preserve erections and ejaculation.To help men have fewer side effects from radiotherapy, He does SpaceOAR/Barrigel insertions under local anaesthetic.

    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.

    Mr. Laniado trains other surgeons in the 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.

    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.

    Prostate Cancer
    I first saw Mr Laniado exactly 3 years ago for my initial consultation which subsequently turned out to be Prostate cancer. Throughout my treatment Mr Laniado proved be the utmost professional, explaining everything very clearly, with compassion and kindness. I subsequently underwent a robotic prostatectomy at the Princess Grace Hospital, and after a couple of days was home. I returned to work a couple of weeks later. After a few months I was fully dry - no doubt helped by doing daily pelvic floor exercises as advised (which I still do!). I cannot recommend Mr Laniado highly enough.

    It is a month after my HOLEP surgery and I'm very glad to have it done by doctor Laniado. He discussed all options with me on my first visit and was open about possible complications. The surgery was a success and it relieved me from the symptoms that reduced my quality of life. The first week after surgery was worrying, however Mr. Laniado stayed in touch over the phone. After a week the improvement became obvious. The follow-up visit confirmed that the surgery achieved its goals. Mr. Laniado is a very experienced and constantly practicing surgeon and my only regret is that I did not have this procedure a year or two earlier.

    High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) Prostate Cancer
    I found Mr Laniado through The Focal Therapy Clinic having been diagnosed with prostate cancer in January. In my first meeting with him he explained all of the reasons as to why I needed to have a second biopsy, and explained all of the possible treatment options that were available to me. He was calm and empathetic when I told him of my concerns, and explained that he would present my case to a multi-disciplinary committee to see if the treatment I preferred would be the right treatment for me. He followed up promptly after every consultation with detailed notes of our discussions and the result from tests. He carried out HIFU therapy on me and was confident that he had done a good job in removing all of the cancer which was confirmed last week by the radiology report. I felt extremely comfortable and confident in placing my personal situation in his hands, and I would recommend him to anyone who find themselves in a similar situation to me.

    Prostate Cancer High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) PSA
    Marc Laniado confirmed my condition following an increasing PSA count and a diagnosis from the NHS that I had prostate cancer. This was in March 2018. Marc recommended this be treated under HIFU (high intensity focused ultrasound) and the operation took place in April 2018. Following the operation I have had a PSA blood test every 4 months and my PSA count has never been above 1 . Today the reading is .647 and a physical inspection of my prostate shows that it has shrunk to normal size. I am extremely happy about the current situation and must say that Marc has done a superb job in curing a life threatening condition.

    Prostate Cancer Robotic Surgery Nerve Sparing Prostatectomy
    I was seen by Mr Marc Laniado at the Princess Margaret Hospital in Windsor. After a number of examinations and given my symptoms and blood test abnormalities, he recommended that the cancer in my prostate was best removed using the Retzius-sparing procedure. He provided good information on what that involved and the success rates, and gave me time to discuss with my wife. I considered this was the best option, so the procedure was carried out by him at the Princess Grace Hospital in Marylebone. The result was a complete success and I remain totally free of prostate cancer. His follow up care was excellent and help was provided to ensure I quickly regained my bladder control. I highly recommend Mr Marc Laniado to anyone who has a similar health problem.

    Prostate Cancer
    Following my initial diagnosis of Prostate cancer, I did some research into consultant Urologists specialising in this area. I discovered the importance of performing this sort of surgery on a regular basis, as surgeon skill and experience is crucial. I was fortunate to be referred to Marc Laniado who is one of the most experienced UK specialists in this field and uses the very latest diagnostic and robotic surgery technology. I can say without hesitation that from diagnosis through to treatment I was equally impressed and reassured by Marc’s skill, knowledge and experience and have very much valued his caring approach with my periodic follow up’s. I have no hesitation in recommending Marc Laniado to any man requiring his expertise in the field of Prostate Cancer.
