    Frequently asked questions

  • What are the common symptoms that your patients tend to present with?

    The commonest symptoms of my patients will be loin pain or ureteric colic. In addition many patients have no symptoms at all and come to see me because of an incidental finding of a kidney stone. I also manage many patients with blood in their urine (haematuria) or a urinary tract infections. Finally I look after a significant number of patients with bothersome lower urinary tract symptoms.

  • What are the treatments that you're able to offer your patients?

    As far as stone disease is concerned, I can offer the whole gamut of modern stone interventions. These range from no treatment to extracorporeal shockwave lithotripsy and include ureteroscopy, flexible ureterorenoscopy and percutaneous renal surgery. I offer all forms of ureteric stenting and laser ablation of superficial urothelial carcinoma of the ureter.

    I also do a lot of lower tract endoscopic work including cystoscopy, endoscopic urethral surgery, bladder treatments and transurethral resection of the prostate.

  • What are your areas of sub-specialist interest?

    My subspecialist interest is in what we call endourology. This includes the diagnosis and endoscopic management of upper tract disorders from the bladder to the kidney, which predominantly involves the treatment of urinary stone disease. Endourologists also look after a lot of ureteric disorders including ureteric obstruction, stricture disease and urothelial cancer of the ureter.
