Mr Shwan Ahmed
MBChB, MD, FRCS (Urol)
I am a Consultant Urological Surgeon based at East Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust. I undertook my urological training in the South East of England including Guy's and King's College Hospitals. I was awarded an MD degree in cryosurgery after completing my Research Fellowship at the University of Surrey and my work has been presented at several international meetings.
My practice involves both general and specialised urological services. I offer a comprehensive assessment and management of urological disorders of the kidney, bladder, prostate and male genitalia. I'm trained in using both bipolar resection and GreenLight laser prostatectomy for benign prostatic enlargement.
My special interests are the treatment of stone disease including the use of holmium laser fragmentation and the management of kidney disorders including kidney cancer. I have particular experience in minimally invasive techniques of the kidney including laparoscopy and cryosurgery.
I'm dedicated to teaching. I have lectured and taught at various courses and meetings and have set up teaching programmes for urology trainees.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Shwan Ahmed at Spire include:
Spire Sussex 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.

I like to spend my spare time with my wife and two children. I also enjoy swimming and walking.
