Mr Nicholas Smith
MCChB FRCS(Urol) PhD
I graduated from Leeds University medical school in 2000 and subsequent surgical and urological training has been in the Yorkshire and Humber postgraduate deanery. I attained the degree of PhD from the department of biology, University of York in 2009 after a successful period of research into bladder dysfunction. During my training in Leeds, I developed skills in performing major surgery for bladder cancer and robotic surgery for prostate cancer.
Following the completion of higher surgical training in urology in 2013, I was appointed to the post of Consultant Urologist at Castle Hill Hospital. As a consultant in urology I treat a wide variety of general urological conditions. These conditions include benign prostate diseases, benign scrotal diseases and recurrent cystitis. In addition to general urological conditions, I have a specialist interest in bladder and prostate cancer. I perform open and minimally-invasive surgery for bladder and prostate cancer.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Nicholas Smith 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.
