Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Kim Hutton at Spire include:
Please note that the above treatments are for paediatric patients only.
I am a full time Paediatric Surgeon with a special interest in Paediatric Urology. I qualified from Leeds University in 1983 with a Distinction in Anatomy. After training in General Surgery in Leeds and in London at the Royal Postgraduate Medical School, I became a tutor in Paediatric Surgery at the Leeds General Infirmary. I completed a higher degree for work investigating urothelial cell biology, whilst at the Cancer Research Institute at St James’s University Hospital in Leeds, and was awarded 1st prize for my presentation at the Urological Research Society in January 1993, London. I completed my Paediatric Surgical training in Leeds and Manchester and undertook a Pediatric Urology Fellowship at the Clark-Morrison Children's Urological Center, Los Angeles, USA in 1996. I was appointed as a Consultant Paediatric Surgeon at the University Hospital of Wales, Cardiff in 1997 and have developed services for Paediatric Urology including urodynamics, neuropathic bladder and renal tract stone disease.
I specialise in paediatric surgery and paediatric urology. I have a keen interest in general paediatric surgery of childhood including foreskin problems, circumcision, preputioplasty, inguinal hernia, inguinal herniotomy, testicular problems, hydrocele, undescended testis, varicocele, testicular pain, umbilical hernia, epigastric hernia, constipation, tongue tie, urinary tract infection, pyelonephritis, urinary incontinence, day and night time wetting, hydronephrosis, vesicoureteric reflux, urinary tract obstruction, prenatal uropathy and neuropathic bladder and bowel.
I have performed over 2000 hernia repairs in childhood and over 500 operations for undescended testes in both my NHS and private practice.
I am Lead Clinician for Paediatric Surgery at University Hospital of Wales, Cardiff - a position I have held since 2007.
I continue to pursue academic interests and help strengthen standards of postgraduate education. I am an examiner for the FRCS Urology exit examinations in Paediatric Urology. I am involved with the Oral Question Writing Group and Standard Setting for the Intercollegiate Specialty Board for the examinations. I am a member of the Commissioning Group for Foreskin Condition, The Royal College of Surgeon of England.
There were no paediatric continence nurse specialists in Cardiff when I arrived and I have been instrumental in progressing key appointments and developing a team approach to the care of paediatric patients with complex urological needs. I have a close working relationship with colleagues in paediatric nephrology, paediatric radiology, paediatric gastroenterology and paediatric anaesthesia, and this collaboration within a multidisiplinary team I believe leads to improved patient outcomes.
