Mr Stephen Gordon BSc, MBBS, FRCS(Urol) is a consultant urologist with a sub-specialist interest in men’s health, fertility, sexual function and the male role in pregnancy loss.
He undertakes consultations from the male partner’s perspective whilst considering both partners with a shared goal. The impact of infertility and miscarriage affects both partners and understanding the complexity of the questions and problems being faced is important. He is married with children and is aware of the personal impact of pregnancy loss.
Understanding men’s health issues as well as the growing body of research that is rapidly evolving around the male role in miscarriage allows him to assess and advise each individual couple. During a consultation Mr Gordon will address specific questions examine and recommend investigations for potentially detectable or treatable issues if appropriate. His priority is to look at the role of the male partner in pregnancy loss but collaborate and advise as to how this may impact on the female partner and their potential child. He is an advocate of natural conception but also appreciates the potential benefits and concerns in the use of assisted reproductive techniques such as IUI (intra-uterine insemination), IVF (in-vitro fertilisation) and ICSI (Intra-Cytoplasmic Sperm Injection). By collaborating with Mr Shehata's assessment of the woman, a combined approach for both men and women can lead to an even greater chance of a successful outcome for more couples.
He has worked within the NHS for over 20 years gaining wide experience and training in areas of male health including prostate, testicular, bladder and kidney conditions. He is currently a consultant at Epsom & St.Helier Hospitals.
