Mr James Michael Adshead
MA, MD, FRCS (Eng), FRCS (Urol)
I qualified at Cambridge University, then moved into a London training scheme. I completed my six year training programme in urology in the West London teaching hospitals and gained valuable experience in urological cancer and minimally invasive access during a laparoscopic fellowship year in Sydney, Australia. I am currently appointed as a consultant at The Lister Hospital, Stevenage. I have produced national guidelines in consenting for urological surgery.
My interests include the management of prostate cancer including Da Vinci robotic prostatectomy, laparoscopic nephrectomy as well as the laser treatment of stones. I also perform vasectomy reversal and cover the majority of general urology.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr James Michael Adshead at Spire include:
Andrology, bladder cancer, MRI guided transperinal biopsies, NeuroSAFE, raised PSA, robotic prostate surgery, prostate cancer diagnosis, nephrology, incontinence, urological pathology.
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.
I live in Harpenden where my three children go to school. I offer a good local service as I am close to patients and local GP practices.
