It doesn’t hurt, takes just a few minutes and could save your life!
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Alan Doherty at Spire include:
I have been a Consultant Urologist for 15 years working in one of the biggest cancer centres in the UK. I am one of the few (if only) surgeons who has performed over 3000 radical prostatectomies with all three main approaches: robotic, laparoscopic and open. I specialise in nerve sparing and have a tract record or being able to maintain potency in up to 80% of patients (see Birmingham Prostate Clinic results section).
I also treat benign prostatic diseases, being well known for my enthusiasm for Greenlight Laser but also recognising and using the new technologies such as Urolift and the more traditional but effective TURP. I am well known for an enthusiasm for PSA screening, but not for prostate biopsy. I am an advocate of pre biopsy MRI. PCA-3 urine gene testing. I provide an MRI fusion mapping template prostate biopsy service. I am one of the two recognised invasive bladder cancer surgeons at UHB, with one of the largest experience in neobladders.
