Mr David Yates
Consultant Urological Surgeon
MD, MBChB, MRCS, FRCS
I'm a Consultant Urological Surgeon in the NHS at the Royal Hallamshire Hospital, with a private practice at Spire Claremont Hospital.
I have experience of treating many general urology conditions as well as specialising in cancer of the urinary tract and minimally-invasive (keyhole) surgery. I am able to offer a comprehensive and efficient service for patients with lower urinary tract symptoms, benign prostate disease and men with concerns about their risk of prostate cancer.
I completed all my training in Sheffield, right through from finishing medical school in 1999 to my appointment as a Consultant Urological Surgeon in 2012.
In 2011, I completed a one year surgical fellowship in Paris where I learned how to perform da Vinci® robot-assisted surgery (not available at Claremont). I was the first surgeon to perform a robotic operation in Sheffield, a radical prostatectomy in October 2013, and am the lead for robotic-assisted surgery in Sheffield.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr David Yates at Spire include:
British Association of Urological Surgeons
The European Association of Urology
Royal College of Surgeons of England
