Urology surgery

Urology surgery

We care for and treat people who need surgery of the kidney, bladder, prostate and male reproductive organs.

About us

The Urology Department specialises in conditions of the urinary tract and reproductive systems.
 
We have a particular interest in urinary tract cancers such as cancers of the kidney, prostate, bladder and testis. We also specialise in renal stone disease and functional urology which includes issues related to incontinence in males and females as well as benign enlargement of the prostate. 
 
To speed recovery, where possible, all treatments are minimally invasive using sophisticated equipment. In 2020, we started treating some conditions using robotic technology.
