About me

Mr Hide Yamamoto is a consultant urological surgeon at Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells Hospital NHS Trust. His practice encompasses all areas of general urology with specific interests in robotic cancer surgery, MRI-guided transperineal prostate biopsy, bladder cancer surgery, and holmium laser prostate surgery.

He attended Cambridge University to read Medicine graduating in 2002. He has a PhD in prostate cancer from UCL funded by a British Urological Foundation scholarship.

His postgraduate urological training took place within the South Thames Rotation which included Guy's Hospital, The Royal Marsden Hospital, and King's College London Hospital. During this time he undertook training in all areas of general urology including subspecialty training in uro-oncology, andrology, stone surgery, and transplant urology.

He also held a joint position during this clinical training as an Academic Clinical Lecturer at King’s College London and participated in translational research in prostate and bladder cancer whilst also supervising MSc and BSc science projects in urological cancers.

He is the lead for urgent referral pathways for prostate cancer and bladder cancer in his NHS Trust. His efforts to transform cancer pathways have been recognised through Clinical Excelllence Awards and Team of the Year Awards. He is a pioneer of prostate biopsy techniques and his clinic has offered a safe and accurate diagnostic service to hundreds of men attending for transperineal prostate biopsy under local anaesthesia.
