Mr John Hetherington
MB ChB, FRCS(Edin), FRCS(Eng)
I am a senior urologist and my special interest is in urological oncology, particularly renal and prostate tumours. I see patients for a range of urological conditions including: prostate treatment and surgery, transurethral resection of bladder tumour (TURBT), transurethral resection of prostate (TURP), vasectomy, vasectomy reversal, circumcision and scrotal surgery, bladder and kidney disorders, erectile dysfunction, urinary tract infections and haematuria.
I am involved in clinical research projects in benign and malignant diseases of the prostate and the use of new technologies eg laser and electrocoagulation of the prostate.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr John Hetherington at Spire include:
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.
