Mr Mohammed Belal(Consultant Urologist)
Mr Mohammed Belal was educated at King Edward’s School, Edgbaston, Birmingham, followed by a degree in medicine at Cambridge University.
His surgical training took place at several nationally renowned centres of excellence, including Guy’s Hospital, London and the Bristol Urological Institute. Mr Belal was awarded a place on a prestigious fellowship, in Melbourne, Australia, where he gained an additional year of higher surgical training.
Mr Belal was appointed as a consultant urologist at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham in 2011. His sub-speciality is the bladder, including the treatment of incontinence, bladder pain and complex reconstructive surgery. Mr Belal is one of a small number of surgeons who is highly experienced in the autologous pubovaginal sling, the alternative to TVT, with far better long term durability and safety.
Mr Belal is a course director of an internationally recognised urodynamics course, attended by surgeons and nurses and has published widely. He receives referrals for patients throughout the West Midlands and beyond and is the regional lead for sacral neuromodulation, a new and effective approach for a range of different bladder problems.
His approach to consultation is thoughtful and compassionate and Mr Belal is committed to finding solutions for patients with complex problems, whose previous treatment may not have worked. Mr Belal welcomes patients who wish to obtain a second opinion. An active researcher and trainer, he can offer the most advanced approaches within the field, with careful consideration of the evidence base.
