I am a Consultant Urological Surgeon at BHR NHS Trust and provide a comprehensive urological service, I also have a major interest in the management of kidney stones. I have been a consultant for almost 10 years and am clinical lead for the urology department. I train urologists at all levels and have published widely including the latest edition of the standard medical student textbook ‘Lecture notes in Urology’.
dr ballaro was most helpful prior to me having my surgery. he explained the procedure in detail and put me at ease. the surgery was a success and on our follow up appointment he again explained what he had done in great detail and also explained what measures I could take to prevent my condition returning in the future.
I saw Mr Ballaro recently for kidney stone problems. From scans & diagnosis to their removal was only a matter of weeks, all dealt with quickly and efficiently. Followed up by advice and recommendations to help avoid them reoccurring. No hesitation in recommending Mr Ballaro.
I had seen Mr Ballaro several years previously when I had stones in both kidneys which were removed. This time the stones were very small and did not need to be mat this stage. A continuous course of low antibiotics was recommended to keep infections away.
Mr Andrew Ballaro was very understanding of my problems. He was able to give me good news from my recent MRI scan and blood test. He recommended a tablet to help control my need to pass water. Mr. Ballaro seemed to care for his patient and apologise for the time that had elapsed between having the scan and getting an appointment for the result. It would have been helpful to have had an earlier appointment so as to reduce the anxiety of the outcome.
I have been under mr ballaro since may 2016 for bladder bleeding I had a operation performed by him on the 22nd July the service I received by all was fantastic, but mr ballaro is patient and a brilliant doctor he looked me in the eyes and talked to me, concentrated on me he gave me good news and was absolutely fantastic and is keeping an eye on me, it was a pleasure being treated by mr ballaro, such a professional gentleman.
