Contact: (0191) 233 6161 Extn 27303 - Sister J Maddick

In the Urology Clinic we carry out specialist investigations and procedures to help diagnose and treat a wide range of urological problems.  These include:

Endourological Suite – a small operating theatre where a range of investigative and surgical procedures are carried out.  These include:

  • Laparoscopic procedures
  • Transurethral Resection of Prostate (TURP)
  • Kidney and Ureter Stone Extractions (PCNL and Ureteroscopy)
  • Vasectomies
  • Circumcisions
  • Brachytherapy (implant radiotherapy treatment for prostate cancer)

Urodynamic Suite – where tests such as a cystometrogram (to test bladder pressure) and ultrasound scans are carried out to assess bladder function.

Haematuria Clinic – a “one-stop” clinic where tests such as an intravenous urogram, renal ultrasound and flexible cystoscopy (tube containing a miniature microscope) are carried out to understand why there is blood in your urine.

Transrectal Ultrasound Clinic – where transrectal ultrasounds and biopsies are carried out to investigate prostate problems.

We absolutely recognise that urological conditions can be sensitive and very distressing.  Our staff are committed to ensuring every patient is treated with the utmost dignity and sensitivity, as well as providing you with the highest quality of care in a safe and comfortable environment.
