What Is Urology?

Urology is a specialist service which is available to both male and female patients. This looks at concerns involving the prostate, urinary tract or bladder and more. Prostate issues are common and mainly affect men over 50. It is important that you consider your symptoms and speak to a specialist or attend your routine screening appointment. Bladder symptoms can be problematic for all patients and again you should seek help if your symptoms persist or become problematic.

Why Might You Need A Private Urologist?

The main benefit when you choose to attend an appointment with a private urologist would be a reduction in the waiting times vs waiting times on the NHS. We offer onsite scanning and diagnostics at the time of your appointment to give you a chance to have a full assessment of your symptoms. In most cases, the consultant will be able to diagnose and offer treatment before you leave your appointment. Symptoms associated with urological conditions can be painful and limit your daily function. We aim to give you access to an experienced professional who can assist you with your problems in a quick and all-encompassing way.

Private Urology Services We Offer

Depending on your complaint, symptoms can be treated in a number of ways. Simple medication may be offered initially or changes in lifestyle suggested to aid your recovery from prolonged symptoms.
Some simple tests can also be requested in the form of diagnostic bloods, urinalysis or post-void ultrasound scans.
In some cases, patients may require further intervention in the form of procedures such as cystoscopy or a Trans-urethral resection of prostate (TURP) and we offer a seamless pathway in the event that this is required.

What Happens At a Urology Appointment?

When you attend we will ask you to provide a urine sample so we can conduct a urinalysis. You will be invited into the consultation room by the consultant who will ask about your symptoms and medical history. They may ask about your daily habits and lifestyle to get a better idea of you as a person. If you have complaints about your bladder or voiding habits, the specialist might carry out same-day post-void scan and determine if there are any factors contributing to your symptoms.

If an examination is required, male patients who have complaints involving their genitals may undergo a physical examination. If there are issues with the prostate, you might require a PR exam and blood samples may be taken in the form of a PSA.

Our female patients might require a physical examination to rule out a prolapse which would require involvement from gynaecology.

How Are Urological Conditions Treated?

A tailored treatment plan will be developed with you during your consultation should you need it. Simple medications or lifestyle interventions may be advised which would mean that there would be no further follow-up required. Depending on your diagnosis, routine follow-up appointments can be arranged with your consultant to ensure that your recovery is on track.
If you have been referred for a procedure then we will arrange this within a few days of your appointment and you will be put in contact with the appropriate team who will take you through your next steps.
