Mr Jorge Clavijo
"In private practice you can expect to see and be cared for by me at every step of your medical journey."
I have been a Urological Surgeon since 1995 and relocated to Lincolnshire in 2006. I find it very satisfying to care for patients at the Private Hospital's superb facilities, at leisure and with complete dedication. Urology is a vast field, I spend considerable time helping patients with check up assessment of prostate cancer and other prostate diseases, voiding symptoms, urinary bleeding, bladder cancer, kidney cancer and sexual problems.
I perform laparoscopic surgery, female urology, treatment of renal tumours including needle tissue ablation (cryotherapy), the UroLift procedure among many other operations and newly developed interventions. If you require procedure specific information, please contact us. We have a continence team and provide care for the various types of urinary incontinence, including recurrences after previous treatments. I am involved in clinical quality improvement by implementing new technology, assessing it and working on patient safety.
I have performed more than 1,000 laparoscopic operations since 1998. I average more than 100 resections per year (TURPs and TURBTs) and a similar number of minimally invasive interventions.
I am the Director of Urology Solutions Ltd, a medical and educational company. In addition to my clinical work, I am also proud to be an Honorary Professor of Urology at the Universidad de la Republica, Montevideo.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Jorge Clavijo 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.
I enjoy outdoor sports particularly long distance walking and fell running.
