Urology is a surgical speciality dealing with the urinary tract of males and females (kidney, ureters, bladder and urethra) as well as the male reproductive system.

The Urology unit provides general urological services for acute and chronic conditions. Major complex pelvic surgery is undertaken in Queen Alexandra Hospital in Portsmouth. This comprises mainly radical prostatectomy, radical cycstectomy and all laparoscopic urological procedures.

In addition, male and female urinal incontinence treatments are offered locally. Urological investigations for LUTS (lower urinary tract symptoms) formerly known as prostatism are carried out in the community by a clinical nurse specialist.

Outpatient clinics are held at St. Mary's Hosptial and at Ryde Outpatients Clinic. Emergency cases are seen via the Emergency department at St. Mary's.
