Going With The Flow

WMH 042314 Mr Ganta2Mr Suresh Ganta, Consultant Urological Surgeon, has recently started working with Nuffield Health Wolverhampton Hospital. Urology is the branch of medicine that focuses on the surgical and medical treatment of the urinary tract; specifically the kidneys, bladder and prostate as well as treating the male reproductive organs. He will be giving a talk open to everyone, on Thursday 24 November at the private hospital.

Common problems that urologist Mr Ganta treats are patients with kidney stones, urinary incontinence, passing blood in the urine, prostate cancer, impotence and genital problems. It is worth knowing that less than 20% of people who go to see a urologist actually go on to have an operation as there are many non-surgical treatments available.

Mr Ganta explains, “Men don’t generally like to talk about these perceived embarrassing health problems which occur very frequently. For example, impotence, or erectile dysfunction, affects at least 10% of men. It is more common in older men and can be the first sign of an underlying problem such as diabetes, heart disease or high blood pressure. For this reason, irrespective of age, it should not be ignored and, even if they do not want treatment to improve their erections, any man with impotence should see their GP for tests. For those that do want to go down the surgical treatment line, there are many effective solutions ranging from medication to procedures.”

To find out more, come to a Men’s Health evening presentation on Thursday 24 November at Nuffield Health Wolverhampton Hospital, Wood Road, Tettenhall.

Consultant Urologist, Mr Ganta, will be doing a presentation covering impotence, incontinence and uro-lift procedures, difficulty passing urine, bladder botox injections, vasectomy and microscopic vasectomy reversal.

People are invited to arrive at 6.30pm for snacks and refreshments, with a 7pm presentation and afterwards one to one mini discreet consultations will be offered.

To book your place, please ring 01902 275253.
