Mr David Yates

Consultant Urological Surgeon


Specialises in

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.
