Background Information 
Professional profile:

Mr Banks trained at Charing Cross and Westminster Medical School, St Mary's and Mount Vernon. He completed a research MD at the Royal Free.  He undertook specialist paediatric training at Great Ormond Steet, Southampton and UCH and has maintained close links with these hospitals. 

Mr Banks will see and investigate virtually all urological conditions, the large majority of which will not require operative intervention. Typically, this will mean patients with difficulties passing or holding onto urine, concerns regarding urological cancers and also conditions such as impotence, kidney stones or infertility. He has a specialist interest in the treatment of benign prostatic obstruction with Holmium Laser Enucleation of the Prostate (HoLEP). He also has a subspecialist interest in paediatric urology and is happy to advise on all conditions from antenatal concerns over kidney dilatation to adolescent issues.

Personal profile:

Freddie Banks is married with a young daughter.

In his youth Mr Banks was a keen rugby player having played with Saracens, in more recent times he has played with Imperial Medicals.

In his spare time he enjoys fishing, birdwatching, gardening and skiing.
