Service overview

Urology treats conditions of the urinary tract including prostate symptoms (problems passing urine) and prostate cancer.  We offer one stop clinics for blood in the urine and urinary tract symptoms and clinics for erection problems. 

Urology offers access to robotic minimally invasive surgery and keyhole stone surgery at St Georges Hospital and Oncology expertise at the Royal Marsden with clinics run locally at Croydon Hospital.  The department offers MRI fusion prostate biopsy as part of a comprehensive MRI based prostate diagnostic service.

The urology department has been reinvigorated in recent times and is now working very closely with primary care and the patients and GPs of Croydon. 

We are now delivering some of the best cancer target outcomes in London for urology patients.

 

We treat

Urology refers to the medical treatment of the urinary system and male reproductive organs. We  treat aspects of care for conditions of the kidneys, bladder, prostate and genitalia.

One-stop urology clinics investigate common symptoms, such as:

  • pain or discomfort passing urine
  • a strong urge to but inability to pass urine
  • passing blood in urine
  • erectile dysfunction

Urology symptoms can indicate a problem in the kidneys, bladder, ureter, urethra, prostate, penis or testes.

The urology team aims to deliver comprehensive, patient centered care as well as high quality and pioneering treatment in partnership with St George’s Hospital Healthcare NHS Trust and The Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust.
