Professor Bhaskar Somani
Consultant Urological Surgeon
MRCS, FEBU, FRCS (Urol)
I am a full time Consultant Urological Surgeon and Honorary Senior Lecturer in urology at University Hospital Southampton. I am the clinical lead for the Endourology Unit and audit/research lead for urology. I perform over 250 ureteric or renal endoscopic procedures per year and specialise in paediatric stone surgery. Besides endourology, I also provide treatment for all general adult urological conditions (including prostate and bladder cancer/diseases, penile and scrotal conditions).
I have streamlined the renal stone services in Southampton and perform complex stone surgery, bilateral ureteroscopic laser stone surgery, and regional referrals. I perform all modern minimally invasive stone treatments including Supine and Ultra-mini PCNLs.
I am the audit/research lead for the unit and am involved in 4 NIHR funded national trials and I sit on three Editorial boards and serves as a reviewer for more than 12 journals. I have over 85 published articles, 170 scientific abstracts and five book chapters.
I am a keen teacher and a faculty member of the British Association of Urological Surgeons skills courses in rigid/flexible upper tract endoscopy and TURP for last five years. Due to my expertise in stone disease and ureteroscopy, I am now an endourology tutor for the European School of Urology and regularly teaches techniques to Consultants and trainees in European training centers.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Professor Bhaskar Somani at Spire include:
