Mr Shiv Bhanot
Consultant Urological Surgeon
MB BS, MS, FRCS
Since 1996 I have worked as a Consultant Urological Surgeon at Spire Hartswood Hospital in Brentwood Essex and Spire London East Hospital in Redbridge.
From 1995-2022 I worked as a Consultant Urological Surgeon at King George and Queen's hospitals. I had the privilege to setup and pioneer several urological services and surgical procedures over the years. After having worked for more than 27 years in a very busy and progressive department I have recently taken retirement from the NHS to focus on my private practice.
I offer diagnosis and treatment for benign and malignant conditions of prostate, kidneys, bladder and testis and penis. These conditions include LUTS, BPH, urinary retention, prostate cancer, prostatitis, bladder cancer, urinary incontinence in men and women. Recurrent UTIS, chronic cystitis, bladder and kidney stones, erectile dysfunction, phimosis and vasectomy reversal.
I see privately insured or self funding patients.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Shiv Bhanot at Spire include:
COVID-19 testing or antibody tests are not available as a standalone service at Spire Hartswood Hospital.
British Association of Urological Surgeons (specialist sections on female urology, oncology and endourology)
Royal Society of Medicine
Research interests: Prostate specific antigen (PSA) testing, cancer diagnosis and treatment
I am an honorary lecturer at the Institute of Urology, London. I am also on the panel of the national cancer peer review group. I regularly review research papers submitted to the Gold Journal of Urology and am credited with several original research papers. My contributions to urological services over the years have included application of various forms of energy including radio-frequency, microwaves and lasers to prostatic enlargement, working on basic science potential of clinical research, leading improvements in diagnostic methods and surgical techniques, setting up of one stop diagnostic services. I have been honoured as a visiting professor by several universities for my work in the Middle East, USA and China. I am also a board director for the Société Internationale d'Urologie.
I have been involved in several community groups and activities. These include my team and family's successful climb in adverse winter conditions to the summit of Ben Nevis in March 2006 in aid of APPLE (Association of Prostate Patients in London and Essex). The money raised has been used to set up keyhole surgery at King George's Hospital. I am married with two children and live in Essex. My interests include reading, mountain walking and cricket.
