About

The urology department at the Royal Derby Hospital provides a comprehensive service to patients with urological conditions such as diseases of the kidneys, bladder, prostate, testes and urinary tract. Our six consultant urologists undertake a range of surgical procedures for both cancer and benign diseases and are supported by the wider team comprising of oncologist, radiologists, specialty doctors, uro-oncology and continence nurse specialist teams.

As part of the East Midlands Cancer Network many patients from other local hospitals will also have their surgical care provided by the urology team at the Royal Derby Hospital, with teleconferencing facilities to discuss patient care.

The department has dedicated outpatient and daycase operating facilities offering consultant and nurse-led clinics, a one-stop haematuria service, urinary stone and continence services. More complex operating is undertaken in the general operating suite, where specific theatres are designated to the urology service.

About

The urology department is staffed by 5 full-time NHS consultants, each with their own areas of special interest.

Services include:

  • Incontinence
  • Erectile dysfunction/andrology
  • Prostate
  • Urinary calculus
  • Vasectomy

On average, 1 in 5 people who are referred to us need an operation. Hence, if you are seen in the urology department, it does not mean that you will automatically be advised to have an operation.
