Urology

Our team of consultants, specialist nurses and support staff in our urology service will care for you if you are referred to us.

We diagnose and treat patients who have a problem with their kidneys, urethra (the tube that you pass urine through), ureter (the tube that carries urine from the kidney to the urinary bladder) and diseases and conditions of the bladder, testis, penis and prostate gland. Our team of specialists see people with problems including:

  • kidney stones
  • kidney cancer
  • other kidney conditions
  • enlarged prostate
  • prostate cancer
  • people who can’t pass water (urine retention)
  • erectile difficulties
  • bladder cancer
  • testicular cancer
  • cancer of the penis
  • bladder conditions not due to cancer

On your first appointment you will be assessed by one of our urology team. We may carry out tests and investigations. If you need scans, we will make sure they run smoothly. You will receive your results as soon as possible.

If you need further treatment we will discuss this with you and support you all of the way.

If you need surgery you may only need to come in for the day or longer depending on what you are having done.
