Mr Azi Samsudin
Consultant Urological Surgeon
MBBCh, FRCS (urology)
I have experience in both general and specialist urology. I specialise in endourology, in particular the treatment of urinary stone disease. I served as a reserve medical officer in the British Army for nine years and gained much experience in a battlefield environment in 2003.
My practice encompasses all aspects of urological conditions and I have an active interest in urinary stone disease. I am the clinical lead for stone services, infection control and appraisal in urology for Whiston.
I graduated from Cardiff in 1996 and trained in urology in the Mersey region prior to being appointed consultant urological surgeon in Whiston Hospital in 2008. I have held admitting rights and clinics in Spire Cheshire Hospital since 2009.
I am active in higher medical education and am regularly invited to join the faculty of endourology masterclasses at local and national levels. I frequently receive tertiary referrals from colleagues within my specialty. I regularly teach as a faculty member on national training courses in urology.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Azi Samsudin at Spire include:
FRCS (Urology) / Royal College of Surgeons, Edinburgh / 2007
Specialist Fellowship in Urology of the Royal College of Surgeons, Edinburgh
Higher specialist degree in Urology.
Lead clinician for Stone Services in my trust
I have two young boys and most of my spare time is spent entertaining them! I like outdoor pursuits and regularly go climbing and bouldering with my family. I play football every week and go on activity-based holidays frequently.
