Mr Phil Assassa
MB ChB, MRCOG
I have over 16 years’ experience as a Consultant in Gynaecology, specialising in Urogynaecology (problems with bladder control, continence and vaginal prolapse).
During my career I have pioneered new surgical and non-surgical therapies for continence, often making treatment quicker, more comfortable and reduced recovery times. I also represent the Royal College of Obstetrics and Gynaecologists in helping NICE (The National Institute of Clinical Excelence) review new surgical techniques in Urogynaecology.
I am a national and international surgical trainer for a number of surgical companies, and I also regularly train consultants from all over the world in new surgical techniques.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Phil Assassa at Spire include:
Spire Elland Hospital 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.
