Franklin Health Urology offers treatment for a full range of urological disorders and conditions for men, women, and children, including: urology surgery; prostate and bladder cancer treatment; vasectomy reversal; and treatment of male infertility, urinary incontinence, prostate disease, and kidney stones using day-case flexible ureteroscopy especially for even very large renal stones (instead of normal more invasive surgery).

The practice additionally offers a hospital-based gold standard minimally invasive surgical procedure called holmium laser enucleation of the prostate (HoLEP), which uses a high-power laser to remove obstructive tissue from the small to even the massively enlarged prostate as an outpatient day-case surgery. For patients, the recovery period is very short and the re-operation rate is virtually non-existent compared to other traditional prostate surgical methods: TURP and GreenLight laser ablation.


Dr. Batstone studied medicine at Cambridge University in England. He graduated with the highest first-class honors degree (BA) in 1990, and qualified with his medical degree in 1993. Dr Batstone went on to complete a residency in urology in Cambridge, and a medical doctorate degree in the Immunology of Prostate Disease also at Cambridge University in 2003. He has been an invited member for a National Institutes of Health expert panel on Prostatitis.
