Mr James Broome
Consultant Urological Surgeon
MBChB, BSc (Hons), FRCS (Urol)
I was educated in the North West and later went on to be awarded a first class honours degree in Pharmacology from the University of Leeds. Subsequently, I went on to study Medicine at the University of Manchester and graduated in 2010. My early surgical training was undertaken in Greater Manchester. Later I progressed to specialty training in Merseyside and Cheshire and developed an interest in urinary tract stone disease.
My main areas of interest are urinary tract stone disease and prostate cancer diagnostics. I am one of two dedicated stone surgeons in my NHS practice and I therefore offer a full range of stone treatments including PCNL, ESWL and ureteroscopy.
I also lead the prostate cancer diagnostic service. I have a keen interest in technology and medical devices and have recently worked in the field, ensuring that devices are safe to be used in patients.
I was appointed as a Consultant Urological Surgeon at Salford Royal Foundation Trust in 2019. I was appointed as the Clinical Director of Salford Care Urology in 2021. In this management role I am responsible for leading a large NHS urology department and improving the care for urological patients across Salford and the North of the city.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr James Broome at Spire include:
Spire Manchester 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.
