Dr Amit Patel
MB ChB (Hons) MRCS FRCR
I qualified with Honours from the University of Manchester after I completed basic surgical training. I underwent clinical radiology training at the well-renowned Nottingham University Hospitals, achieving sub-specialist recognition in Interventional Radiology.
Subsequently, I carried out sub-specialist fellowship training in uroradiology at St George’s Hospital and University College Hospital London, both specialist centres for urological oncology, andrology and stone disease. I gained invaluable multimodality experience in the entire spectrum of urological imaging and related intervention, particularly multiparametric prostate MRI, video urodynamics, PCNL and renal tumour ablation.
I have delivered numerous national and international presentations in urological/GI imaging and am the Head of Education for the British Society of Urogenital Radiology. My main clinical interests include urological and GI imaging, prostate MRI, contrast enhanced ultrasound and interventional radiology.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Dr Amit Patel at Spire include:
Testicular vein embolisation, transrectal prostate biopsy, portacath insertion, image guided biopsy and drainage
Spire Harpenden 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.
