Mr Subu Subramonian
MBB., MS, FRCS (Urol)
I undertook my basic Urological training and research in West Yorkshire, followed by higher surgical training in London. I underwent specialist training in endoscopic surgery for stone disease and laparoscopic surgery at King's College, London and St George's Hospital.
I spent some time in the Cleveland clinic and John Hopkin's Hospital in America on a travelling scholarship from the British Urological Foundation. Here, I learnt minimally invasive surgical skills before joining the University Hospital Birmingham as Consultant Urological Surgeon.
I have established a regional treatment service for kidney stones which caters to complex stone disease patients referred from across the West Midlands.
My special expertise is in performing keyhole surgery and laser treatment for stones. I have performed over 320 keyhole procedures for stones and more than 1,500 laser operations.
My other area of expertise is in performing Laparoscopic (Keyhole) surgery for benign conditions of the kidney (Laparoscopic Nephrectomy and Pyelolasty.)
I provide specialist treatment services for patients suffering from kidney stones at Spire Parkway Hospital. The following services will be provided: laser treatment of stones (through telescope.) Keyhole surgery to remove stones. Lithotripsy (shock wave treatment.) Laparoscopic (keyhole) surgery for kidney problems.
Keyhole surgery to remove kidney. Keyhole surgery for obstructed kidneys (PUJ obstruction.) Open surgery for kidney and bladder stones. Endoscopic treatment for blockage of kidney. Risk assessment of patients with recurrent stone disease. Advice on dietary and lifestyle measures to prevent stones.
Consultant Urological Surgeon, Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham. West Midlands Regional Representative for Royal College of Surgeons and National Council Member, British Association of Urological Surgeons.
When I am not taking stones out, you could probably spot me counting stones in a seaside resort, walking a mountain path, playing badminton or tennis.
