    About

    Mr Hide Yamamoto is a Consultant Urological Surgeon based at Maidstone & Tunbridge Wells NHS Trust who specialises in laser prostate surgery and robotic prostate cancer surgery. He also sees patients with general urological conditions.  Mr Yamamoto sees private patients at the Nuffield Tunbridge Wells, Spire Tunbridge Wells and KIMS Hospitals.

    Mr Yamamoto gained his primary medical qualification at Cambridge University, after which he went on to gain his PhD with UCL under scholarship with the British Urological Foundation. He then undertook his specialist urological training under the South Thames Rotation, allowing him to train at world renowned London hospitals such as The Royal Marsden Hospital, and Guy's Hospital. During this time, Mr Yamamoto was also made Academic Clinical Lecturer at KCL. Since being appointed consultant in 2016, he has since become the urology cancer lead and manages the urgent referral pathway for suspected prostate cancer. 

    He is a pioneer of transperineal prostate biopsies performed under local anaesthetic and one of the first in the UK to adopt the new approach into routine practice in 2017.  He has personally performed more than 1000 transperineal prostate biopsies and trains other urologists at national courses.

    Patient seen for:
    Mr Yamamoto was clear in his description of the operation and possible side effects. The operation was unusual in that it involved removal of multiple stones instead of the more usual one or two and required two successive operations because of the large number of stones to be removed. This clearly required a high degree of skill and a scan six months later which showed no trace of any stones proved that the operations had been a complete success. The reason for the operation was that the stones had been revealed by an earlier scan.

    Mr Yamamoto is a superb consultant and I really felt that he took the time to explain everything to me from the process to the follow up and ongoing treatment. He is lovely to talk to and you never feel that you are just taking up his time. I would not hesitate in recommending him to anyone.
