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 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.
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.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Andrew Myatt at Spire include:
COVID-19 testing or antibody tests are not available as a standalone service at Spire Hull and East Riding Hospital.

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!
