We’re experts in urinary health and have a team of dedicated professionals ready to help you.

How our urology team can help you

Urology focuses on the urinary tract, as well as the kidneys, adrenal glands, bladder, urethra and the male reproductive organs. If you’re experiencing issues in any of those areas, why not book to see us today?

For example, you may be finding that:

  • You’re seeing small amounts of blood in your urine (haematuria)
  • You have pain in your lower back that you think is being caused by kidney stones

You’re urinating more frequently or experiencing a burning pain when urinating and you’d like to see a doctor for help

For your peace of mind, we regularly see and treat people who require:

  • Urinary stone disease treatment
  • Prostate surgery
  • Urinary tract infection (UTI) treatment
  • Circumcision
  • Vasectomy and vasectomy reversal

Our two priorities are always to:

  • diagnose and treat your urinary problem fast, so that any pain you have is quickly stopped
  • help you recover, so that you can get back to enjoying life as soon as possible.

Your consultations and treatment will be carried out by the specialist urology team here at Sulis Hospital Bath. All our staff are experts in urinary tract problems and are dedicated to getting you treated and fully recovered quickly and safely.

My initial consultation – What can I expect?

When you book an appointment at Sulis Hospital Bath, you’ll be seen by one of our friendly consultants who specialise in urological problems.

All of them are recognised leaders in their field and have many years of experience treating issues of the urinary tract, kidneys, adrenal glands, bladder, urethra, and the male reproductive organs.

They’ll have a very detailed chat with you about your symptoms, your concerns and your previous medical history to get a thorough understanding of things.

You may be asked to complete a questionnaire about urinary symptoms (this is known as the International Prostate Symptom Score).

Depending on the symptoms you’re experiencing, they may want to carry out some specialised tests to help them assess things more accurately (don’t worry, they’ll explain any examination they need to do. You’ll always know what’s being done and why it’s being done).

At Sulis Hospital Bath, we have a wide range of state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment to ensure you’ll receive a fast and accurate diagnosis.

Some of the tests that your consultant may want you to have include:

  • a blood test: to check if there are any signs of inflammation or infection that may be causing your symptoms
  • an ultrasound scan of your bladder or kidneys: this can help assess the size, location and shape of them, as well as detect abnormalities
  • flow rate: this measures the speed of your urinary flow, and can help assess bladder function

Not all of these additional tests will necessarily be required, and the consultant may want you to have additional tests that aren’t listed above. Again, these will all be thoroughly explained to you beforehand so that you know how the tests will be carried out and why they’re being done.

You’ll be pleased to know that we believe in giving you a quick, accurate diagnosis. After all, why should you have to wait for a fortnight (or longer) for your results to come back? A longer wait for results means additional worry, discomfort and uncertainty that you just don’t need.

It should be noted that after this initial meeting the consultant may decide that surgery isn’t needed and that treatment can be provided by some other means (for example medication).

If it’s determined that surgery is in fact required, the consultant will talk you through the process thoroughly and answer any questions or concerns you may have.

Why should I have my treatment at Sulis Hospital Bath?

If you do require treatment for a urological problem, we believe you’ll find no better place to come for expert help than Sulis Hospital Bath.

At Sulis Hospital Bath, we like to do things differently. Unlike many other hospitals, you’ll benefit from:

  • receiving your treatment within two weeks of initial diagnosis: with no waiting lists, we can get your urological problem treated and help you get back to better health quickly.
  • treatment by a specialist consultant surgeon: with decades of shared experience treating urinary tracts disorders, our consultants include internationally-renowned surgeons (in fact, they’re often asked for help and advice from other specialists).
  • our multidisciplinary team: we have built an incredibly strong and diverse team of like-minded medical experts who all work together every day to achieve the best possible result for everyone they treat for urological issues. Being able to draw upon such a vast amount of shared experience means that you will always receive the absolute best advice and treatment possible.
  • our vast experience in treating urology problems: our consultants are all hugely experienced. You’re in good hands when you’re seen by them.

We know that you’d prefer not to need any treatment for your urinary tract, kidneys, adrenal glands, bladder, urethra, or male reproductive organs. But if you do require treatment why not have it carried out by the very best specialists, in the very finest hospital and with the very best possible care?
