Virtual consultations:

I graduated from the University of Bristol in 1999 and undertook my specialist urological training in the North West. I am currently a Consultant Urological Surgeon at the University Hospital of South Manchester. I was appointed as a consultant in 2009 having initially worked between Trafford General Hospital and University Hospital South Manchester. I practice evidence based urological care and strive to provide excellent, consultant led care to all my patients be it inpatients or outpatients. I believe good communication is essential and am very honest with the care I deliver.

I provide a broad spectrum of general urology including the management of prostatic enlargement (BPH), raised PSA (prostate blood test), lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS), haematuria (blood in the urine), recurrent urinary tract infections, prostatitis and testicular pain. I also have a special interest in the diagnosis of urological cancer (bladder, prostate, renal, testicular and penile cancer).

I have been involved in clinical research and practices evidence based urological care. I am a member of the British Association of Urological Surgeons and the European Association of Urology. By constantly keeping up to date with national and international urological developments I am able to ensure patients get the most appropriate treatment. I have a strong audit and governance portfolio.

Q & A

Circumcision: Procedure, benefits, risks and recovery

Mr Thiru Gunendran, Consultant Urological Surgeon, explains why you might need a circumcision procedure due to a tight foreskin or balanitis. The procedure can be done either with a local or general anaesthetic and involves a cut around the head of the penis which will take a few weeks to heal.
