Our urological Surgeon Dr Ramin Samali is a member of the Urological Society of Australasia and a Fellow of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons. Having obtained his medical degree with honours from University of NSW in 1994 he embarked on a career in surgery and on completion of his fellowship in 2003 he chose Tamworth as his home and has been practicing his craft ever since. For majority of the time he has been the sole urologist to the region providing on call services 24/7.
Urology New England has been in its current location at 9 Dean Street Tamworth since October 2008. It is within walking distance of Tamara Private Hospital and a short drive from Tamworth Hospital. Dr Samali works out of both hospitals and consults from 9 Dean Street premises.
Urology is a sub specialty of discipline surgery dealing with urological organs including kidneys and adrenal glands, ureters, bladder, prostate and genital organs.
Dr Samali has extensive expertise in management of cancer affecting urological organs. He routinely performs laparoscopic (keyhole surgery) for management of cancer of kidneys, adrenal glands and prostate. To date he has performed 1,500 radical prostatectomy ( surgical removal of prostate) operations for management of prostate cancer.
This is considered very high volume and translates to superior ability to deal with complex circumstances at the time of surgery and in turn providing the safest and best possible outcomes.
There has never been any deaths associated with this operation performed by Dr Samali.
Dr Samali is also accredited and routinely performs one of the most major urological procedures namely cystectomy (surgical removal of bladder) and reconstruction of a new bladder from bowel for management of advanced bladder cancer.
Apart from cancer management he is responsible for introduction of urological lasers to the area and has extensive experience in use of laser in management of prostatic enlargement and stone disease of the urinary tract, with associated benefits of more accurate treatment and shorter stay in hospital.
Dr Samali also has a large experience in prosthetic urological surgery including penile prosthetic surgery for management of erectile dysfunction and placement of slings and artificial urinary sphincter for management of urinary incontinence.
Needless to say Dr Samali deals with all manner of urological problems from the most routine to the most complex. If you have the need to discuss or seek advice or management for any urological problems you should expect an open dialogue, a friendly and understanding discussion without use of medical jargon and above all plenty of experience to guide you through what could be a very stressful situation. This is what Dr Samali promises to bring to the table.
