Mr Alastair Henderson

Consultant Urologist


Specialises in

  • Kidney stone prevention and management
  • Prostate surgery
  • Urological cancers

I joined Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells NHS Trust in 2010, as a consultant urological surgeon. I also provide a paediatric urology clinic and surgery service at Spire Tunbridge Wells Hospital.

My clinical practice includes all aspects of general urology. My special interests are in the treatment of kidney problems including kidney cancer using laparoscopy and minimally invasive diagnosis and treatment for prostate cancer. I have a particular experience in prostate brachytherapy, cryotherapy, laser prostatic surgery and robotic surgery for prostate cancer and in helping men with prostate cancer to decide on the right option for them.

I was an undergraduate at Imperial College and St Mary's Hospital, London. I completed a PhD on prostate cancer. My postgraduate training was at Guy's Hospital London as well as Frimley, Epsom, East Surrey and the Royal Surrey County Hospital in Guildford. This included visits to Seattle where Brachytherapy treatment was pioneered at the Seattle Prostate Institute and over two years at Guy's Hospital learning robotic and laparoscopic surgery.

I am a member of the British Association of Urological Surgeons and the European Association of Urologists.
