What is a urologist?
Urologists are surgeons who treat men, women and children with problems involving the kidney, bladder, prostate and male reproductive organs.
These conditions include cancer, stones, infection, incontinence, sexual dysfunction and pelvic floor problems.
Dr Adam Davies completed his medical degree through Otago University Medical School in 1995, splitting his time between Dunedin and Wellington. He then travelled to the UK, where he spent 18 months working as a clinical fellow in urology at the Royal Free Hospital, in north London.
Adam subsequently returned to New Zealand to complete his advanced training in urology. During this time Adam developed a sub-speciality interest in laparoscopic or ‘key hole’ minimally invasive surgery.
Adam was then accepted to spend 18 months at the Royal Perth Hospital in Western Australia, completing a fellowship in advanced laparoscopic urological surgery in 2011. Afterwards, Adam was employed as a specialist laparoscopic urological surgeon at Waikato Hospital, Hamilton, in 2012.
He is now head of the urological training programme in the Waikato, with a sub-speciality focus on laparoscopy and advanced kidney stone surgery or percutaneous nephro-lithotomy (PCNL).
