Urology & Men’s Health

At The London Independent our dedicated Urology Department offers fast and efficient access to consultations and treatments. Our urology consultants and hospital staff are all respectful, experienced, and patient-centred, and prioritise your dignity, privacy, and highest standard of care.

Common complaints you may want to seek treatment for include:

  • Changes to urine (appearance of blood; pain or stinging sensation; difficulty urinating or increased frequency)
  • Pain in your back or sides
  • A testicular mass

The following treatments are offered at The London Independent, and your consultant will discuss thoroughly with you the best treatment options for your situations:

Adult Circumcision

This is a relatively simple procedure to remove the foreskin and is considered a common treatment for several medical reasons. The procedure is performed under general anaesthetic, completed in less than an hour, and your return home will be the next day if not before. Light exercise is recommended to aid recovery.

Cystoscopy

This procedure uses a fibre-optic telescope to inspect for any issues inside your bladder, such as blood in the urine or repeated infections. The technique passes the cytoscope through the urethra and into the bladder, and is completed in 5 minutes. Recovery is fast, you can usually return home that day and to work the day after.

Incontinence Treatment

Leakage of urine from the bladder is a common issue, experienced by millions in the UK. Causes can be anything from stress to nerve damage in surrounding tissues, and our respectful consultants will thoroughly discuss with you the best treatment options most appropriate to their careful diagnosis.

Vasectomy

This is a permanent form of contraception, by cutting the tubes delivering sperm from the testes.  We also offer vasectomy reversals, a procedure to re-stitch the tubes together again. The treatment involves local or general anaesthetic, takes only 15 minutes, and you should be able to return home the same day, to work within a couple of days rest. Light exercise may aid faster recovery.
