Mr Freddie Banks
MD, FRCS (UROL), MBBS, BSc (Hons)
I am a Consultant Urological Surgeon at West Herts Hospitals Trust (Watford General Hospital) with an interest in general Urology and a sub-specialist interest in paediatric Urology. I am the Clinical Lead for Urology in the Trust and Associate Medical Director.
I have broad experience in the investigation and management of Urological conditions. From a medico-legal perspective I have a wide experience of assessing Uro-genital trauma following accidents affecting the pelvis, abdomen and spine. Typically this involves erectile dysfunction and or infertility issues. I have widespread experience of treatment induced Urological trauma, and I have an extensive experience in this field having previously worked at Great Ormond Street and University College London Hospital seeing complex Urological abnormalities, and in particular the consequences of traumatic Urological injuries. I also have wide experience of repairing the bladder or ureters as a consequence of gynaecological or obstetric procedures.
I have a broad experience in the investigation, treatment, management of all forms of Urological cancer. I am an expert in the field of Holmium Laser Prostate Surgery, and previously completed a brief fellowship in New Zealand under the technique’s founders Peter Gilling and Mark Fraundorfer. I have an extensive practice in Urological cancer diagnosis and treatment.
I am an invited reviewer for the British Journal of Urology International and the British Journal of Medical and Surgical Urology. I am also widely published, please download my C.V. for further information.
