Celebrating its 40th Anniversary this month, Nuffield Health Wolverhampton Hospital, has developed a strong service for Men's Health. Three urological surgeons and a specialist in genito-urinary medicine base their private practice at the hospital in Tettenhall.

Urology 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. Common problems include kidney stones, urinary incontinence, passing blood in the urine, prostate cancer, impotence and genital problems. There are many non-surgical treatment options when seeing a urologist, with less than 20% of patients actually requiring an operation.
