Professor Jayanta Barua

Consultant Urologist

MD, FRCSEd (Urol), FEBU, DipMngmt (OU)

Specialises in

  • Bladder cancer
  • Male infertility
  • Paediatric urology
  • Prostate cancer
  • Urinary tract infections

I am a Consultant Urologist offering urology treatment at Spire Hartswood private hospital in Brentwood and Spire London East private hospital in Redbridge. My urological practice involves the emergency and routine management of common urological disorders including urinary stone disease, problems with urinary outflow and urinary tract cancers.

My special clinical interests are uro-oncology cancers of the urinary tract, urogynaecology (women's urology) and abnormal function of the bladder including urinary incontinence and urodynamic studies to test bladder behaviour. Impotence and male infertility, including reversal of vasectomy and modern techniques of sperm retrieval in patients with obstructive azoospermia (where there is a blockage to the flow of sperm from the testes).

I believe in listening to patients and sharing my knowledge and medical opinion using jargon-free language. I like to take a shared approach, involving patients equally in decision making when discussing and finalising the care and treatment best suited to their needs. I aim to provide a caring and compassionate approach to all my patients. I feel happy and privileged to be able to do this with many enthusiastic team colleagues at Spire Hartswood and Spire London East hospitals. 

I qualified in 1982 from the University of Edinburgh. I trained as a registrar in urology in Dundee and as a senior registrar at Barts and the Royal London Hospitals. I was appointed as a Consultant Urologist at Harold Wood Hospital near Brentwood in 1996 and moved to King George Hospital, Goodmayes, Essex in 2006. I have been Director of Research and Development at the Barking Havering and Redbridge University Hospitals NHS Trust (which includes Queens Hospital, Romford) since 2001.
