Urology

Caring for the health of patients’ urinary tract systems and the male reproductive organs.

The urology department at Royal Cornwall Hospitals looks after the health of both the male and female urinary tract system and the male reproductive organs.
We have a team of consultant urologists, specialist urology nurses and two uro-oncology clinical nurses looking after our patients across the county.

Our Urology Investigation Unit is based at Royal Cornwall Hospital in Treliske, Truro, where we carry out procedures such as flexible cystoscopies and prostate biopsies (TRUS).

Anyone who needs to come in for an operation as an inpatient will stay with us at the Royal Cornwall Hospital, and we also carry out day­ surgery at West Cornwall Hospital in Penzance.

For outpatients, we hold urology clinics in Truro, Bodmin, Camborne and Redruth, Falmouth, Hayle, Newquay, St Austell and Penzance.
