Mr Feras Al Jaafari
Consultant Urological Surgeon
MD FRCS(Eng) FEBU
I am a consultant urologist with a special interest in Endourology (stone disease) and LASER prostate surgery and extra-anatomical urinary diversion (internalising long term nephrostomy drains).
I completed my medical and basic surgical training at “Gr T Popa” University in Iasi, Romania. I completed my urological training in the East of England having had a broad exposure to endourology, uro-oncology and robotic surgery.
I am a fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons of England (FRCS) and of the European Board of Urology (FEBU). My training included a uro-oncology fellowship to “UZ Leuven University Hospital” in Belgium and multiple visits to leading European training centres sharpening my skills in LASER prostatectomy (anatomical GreenLight LASER, HoLEP), UroLift® and keyhole stone surgery. I'm a keen surgical trainer and a GreenLight LASER national proctor. I run multiple national courses in LASER surgery and Extra-anatomical urinary diversion - to rid patients of their nephrostomy tubes.
I'm a full-time consultant at the NHS Fife and an Honorary Senior Lecturer/Urology Education Lead (graduate entry - ScotGEM) at the School Medicine, University of St Andrews.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Feras Al Jaafari at Spire include:
Spire Edinburgh Hospitals Murrayfield and Shawfair Park is only able to provide Covid-19 tests to patients undergoing surgery at our hospital. Covid-19 testing or antibody tests are not available as a standalone service.
I'm married with three lovely children. My hobbies include Shotokan Karate (black belt) and table tennis.
