Tom McNicholas has written widely on many aspects of urinary disease. He is particularly in demand for teaching on benign prostatic disease and urinary symptoms. He has major interests in the management of prostate cancer, the treatment of urinary stone disease and in making common urological investigations (especially prostatic biopsy) both painless and safer.
He has written over 150 major scientific papers which can be reviewed in the bibliography. Most recently he has been lead author of the chapter on Benign Prostatic Disease in the latest addition of Campbell’s Urology. This 4 volume textbook is the “bible” for urology and is used by urological experts worldwide. He is one of only a small handful of British urologists to have been recognised in this way.




Prospective, Randomized, Multinational Study of Prostatic Urethral Lift Versus Transurethral Resection of the Prostate: 12-month Results from the BPH6 Study



Hot off the press! Published online in a major scientific Journal there is more evidence on the value of the Urolift treatment option for men's urinary symptoms, this time compared to the long standing "Gold standard" of TURP.

Even though we know that TURP is overkill for many men it is reassuring to see this first head to head study.

In this international trial, part held in the UK NHS, men who underwent prostatic urethral lift ("Urolift") responded significantly better than those who underwent transurethral resection of
the prostate (TURP) as therapy for symptoms from benign prostatic hyperplasia with respect to
important aspects of their quality of life. Essentially TURP gives a man a much better flow - but at a price.

Urolift gives a man a better flow and other improvements with a less invasive procedure and without upsetting him or his sex life!
