Mr Tamer El-Husseiny is a consultant urological surgeon at Charing Cross and St Mary's hospitals. In addition to general urology he sub-specialises in the diagnosis and management of kidney stones and Benign prostatic disorders. He is an expert in endourological surgery (minimally invasive surgery) such as ureteroscopy and laser stone fragmentation, PCNL (keyhole surgery for kidney stones), HoLEP (Holmium Laser Enucleation of the Prostate), Urolift, Rezum water vapour therapy and the endourological management of upper tract urothelial cancers. He treats other upper tract abnormalities, including strictures and extrinsic obstruction. He also has special expertise in the use of different types of urological stents.
Mr El-Husseiny graduated from medical school with honours, he has then completed his basic surgical and urological training and was appointed as an assistant lecturer in urology. He underwent his higher specialist urological training on both the London and West Midlands urology training schemes. In addition, he has also completed the prestigious two-year subspecialty endourology fellowship (Awarded by the Endourological Society, USA) at St Bartholomew's Hospital, specialising in the management of complex stone disease.
He has completed a MSc and MD degrees in urology and is very passionate about research and academic urology. He has led on and completed numerous research projects and has extensively published in peer reviewed journals, authored book chapters and presented in international, national and regional conferences and meetings. He maintains a strong teaching interest and he has taught on numerous courses and workshops. He is also a peer reviewer for numerous international journals.
