Mr Freddie Banks
BSc, MBBS, FRCS (Urol)
I see and investigate virtually all urological conditions, the large majority of which will not require operative intervention. Typically, this will mean patients with difficulties passing or holding onto urine, concerns regarding urological cancers and also conditions such as impotence, kidney stones or infertility.
I have a specialist interest in the treatment of benign prostatic obstruction with Holmium Laser Enucleation of the Prostate (HoLEP). I also have a subspecialist interest in paediatric urology and is happy to advise on all conditions from antenatal concerns over kidney dilatation to adolescent issues.
I trained at Charing Cross and Westminster Medical School, St Mary's and Mount Vernon. I completed a research MD at the Royal Free. I undertook specialist paediatric training at Great Ormond Steet, Southampton and UCH and has maintained close links with these hospitals.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Freddie Banks at Spire include:
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.
