The Freeman Hospital is a regional urology unit offering all forms of urology care under one roof.
We continually develop new techniques to treat urological conditions with minimal damage to healthy tissue. We also use the latest generation da Vinci surgical robot for the highest levels of precision and swift recovery while minimising damage to surrounding structures.
Some of the services we offer include:
- diagnosis and treatment for urological cancers and benign (non-cancerous) conditions
- laparoscopic (keyhole) procedures
- cystoscopic equipment to examine inside the bladder
- lasers to offer the best and most minimally invasive procedures leading to minimal damage of healthy tissue.
You can find out more about our regional centre on the Newcastle Urology website.
The Urology Foundation training centre
We have been designated as a ‘TUF robotic training centre’ after bidding to The Urology Foundation (TUF).
We are one of only three TUF robotic training centres in UK, which allows us to offer training to Urology doctors from across the country. This is the first initiative of its kind in the UK, and part of the training would be carried out in the Newcastle Surgical Training Centre.
The Freeman Hospital has a range of modern facilities and is the leading provider for the North of England of the innovative and increasingly popular robotic assisted prostatectomy.
Our clinicians are nationally recognised and we are the regional centre for a range of treatments for conditions such as bladder, kidney, prostate and testicular cancer. You can get more details about the services we offer.
You can also find out more about our facilities on the Newcastle Urology website.
Committed to quality care
We are committed to improving your experience while in our care.
Many of our procedures require only an overnight stay and we are also developing more services based in the community.
We are the on-call urology service for the Newcastle and Northumberland area. Care of emergency urology patients is led by an on-call urology consultant who is trained in the care of acute urology problems. We also offer a rapid access clinic for non-urgent problems.
