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 provide specialist treatment services for patients suffering from kidney stones at Spire Parkway Hospital. This includes laser treatment of stones (through telescope), keyhole surgery to remove stones, lithotripsy (shock wave treatment), laparoscopic (keyhole) surgery for kidney problems.
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 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.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Subu Subramonian at Spire include:
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.
