Professor Barua's urological practice involves the emergency and routine management of common urological disorders including urinary stone disease, problems with urinary outflow and urinary tract cancers. In addition, his. special clinical interests are: uro-oncology: cancers of the urinary tract. . uro-gynaecology (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).

Professor Barua regularly performs the following operations and treatments:. Rigid and flexible cystoscopy (bladder investigations), transurethral resection of bladder tumours (TURBT) and transurethral resection of prostate (TURP). . Removal of ureteric and bladder stones by open surgery and by endoscopic (keyhole) surgery. Pyeloplasty, retropubic prostatectomy for benign prostate disease. Colposuspension (bladder neck repair for women). . Cancer surgery eg radical orchidectomy for testicular cancer; radical nephrectomy and nephro-ureterectomy for kidney cancers and a new and less invasive treatment for prostate cancer called High Intensity Focused Ultrasound or HIFU. This destroys cancerous tissue using heat treatment generated by ultrasound waves.. . Circumcision for adults and children.

I am a consultant urologist offering urology treatment at Spire Hartswood private hospital in Brentwood and Spire Roding 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.

In addition, my special clinical interests are: uro-oncology (cancers of the urinary tract), uro-gynaecology (women's urology) , 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)
