Andrew Adamson is an experienced and respected Urologist in NHS and private practice in Winchester, Chandlers Ford and Southampton.
He practices at The Royal Hampshire County Hospital and Southampton teaching Hospitals with private rooms at Sarum Road and Wessex Nuffield Hospitals, offering a wide range of treatments for urological disease with access to rapid high-quality diagnostics.
Having graduated from Bart’s and trained to registrar level in General surgery, his higher training in urology was completed at St Mary’s Hospital London, Eastbourne District General and finally at Kings College Hospital London. During his training, Andrew was active in clinical and basic science research and was awarded an MS in Surgery for work looking into the interaction of the coagulation system and prostate cancer, with a view to detecting novel markers able to predict the biological potential of cancer cells at diagnosis. This work took him to the US where he worked at the University of Notre Dame Indiana and was recognised by the award of the prestigious Association of Surgeons in Training Gold medal. This interest in clinical research has continued and in all, Andrew has more than 60 publications in peer-reviewed journals.
He has widely published in the peer-reviewed literature and prides himself in giving balanced, evidence-based advice. He feels this very important given the ever-increasing portfolio of treatments for various urological conditions, many of which have limited evidence base. He is regularly consulted by colleagues.
Since his appointment in Winchester as a general urologist Andrew has further developed his interest in Uro-oncology and laparoscopy, the latter skill being aided by being awarded a valued Preceptorship at the Cleveland Clinic, America. He has also spent time at the Mayo Clinic Rochester USA, Northwest memorial Hospital Chicago, Emory University Hospital in Atlanta and Mansoura Hospital on the Nile delta, Egypt. This experience allowed him to offer minimally invasive surgery to more patients with varied urological pathology. He has a particular interest in minimally invasive surgery for adrenal disease, for which he has a regional practice, laparoscopic renal surgery and he founded the laparoscopic prostatectomy service across the Winchester/Southampton axis. He also established the laser stone and laser prostatectomy service at Winchester.
When not working he enjoys watching rugby (an ever-optimistic Scotland supporter), adventure motorcycling and the company of family and friends.
