Mr Andrew Myatt
MBChB, FRCSEd (urol), PhD, FEBU
I graduated from Leicester University in 1996. I spent basic surgical training in Birmingham. From 2001 I performed formal research into the possible cause of benign prostate enlargement at Nottingham University leading to the award of PhD. I moved to Yorkshire for training in Urology in 2005. I quickly realised beautiful Yorkshire was to become my permanent home.
I made sure that my training was long and packed full of operations under supervision despite having opportunity to shorten my training thus ensuring a well rounded, complete training in all aspects of general urology and specialised urological surgery.
I concentrated on learning the management of patients with prostate disease, stone disease and kidney disease. I was fortunate to be taught by some of the best UK keyhole surgeons. By the end of my training I had performed an impressive number of keyhole kidney operations.
In 2011 I went to study complex kidney surgery in Salzburg, Austria with one of the best and pioneering keyhole kidney surgeons in the world. I significantly improved my keyhole surgery skills and I am now one of the few keyhole surgeons in the UK with the skills to safely perform keyhole partial kidney removal.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Andrew Myatt at Spire include:
Benign scrotal lumps, transurethral resection of bladder tumour (TURBT), transurethral resection of prostate (TURP), urethral cancer.
Spire Hull and East Riding 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 have a passion for dogs. Wooster is now nearly 5 and is a constant source of fun and relaxation for me. My colleague from Castle Hill Hospital owns his brother Jeeves. I chose a large breed dog that needs plenty of exercise to give the perfect excuse to explore the beautiful East Riding countryside and coast. I often take him to Fraisthorpe and Mappleton beach and with the Wolds Way literally on my doorstep Wooster and I have plenty of opportunity for lots of exercise. Since I have him I have lost 2 stone in weight!
