    Mr Azi Samsudin is a urologist based in Cheshire and Merseyside. He was appointed as a Consultant Urological Surgeon in Whiston and St Helens Hospital in 2008. He graduated from Cardiff Medical School in 1996 and then completed higher specialist training in Urology in the Mersey region. Mr Samsudin also served as a Medical Officer in the British Army Reserve for 9 years and gained valuable battlefield experience when he was mobilised overseas in 2003.

    Mr Samsudin sub-specialises in Endourology, and is experienced in both general and specialist urological therapy. His main interests are in the management of complex stone disease and bladder outlet obstruction. He is particularly interested in minimal access therapy for urological problems, eg.

Mr Samsudin is very active in medical education and is involved in teaching both medical/nursing students as well as qualified doctors. He is regularly invited to teach as a faculty member on national training courses in urology and has organised various Endourology courses in Merseyside.

    Explanation (5/5)
    I attended Mr Samsudin's clinic in January 2022 and following a consultation underwent a procedure on my bladder in March. Everything was explained to me clearly and concisely including what to expect after the procedure and in the following weeks. I cannot recommend Mr Samsudin highly enough. He is extremely knowledgeable and professional but importantly he also listens to and answers any questions and concerns you may have. He is also extremely approachable and has a wonderful bedside manner. My procedure was successful and I am so thankful to Mr Samsudin for his expertise and experience in resolving my bladder issue after many, many months of pain and discomfort. If you entrust your care to Mr Samsudin you will most definitely not be let down.

    Mr Samsudin provided excellent support and guidance as I moved through the investigative stages of reviewing the risk of cancer in my prostate. As I learnt the prognosis, that it was cancer, he was compassionate providing answers to my many questions, both in the consulting room and afterwards as I took the next step of seeing my surgeon.
