Mr Vibhash Mishra is a consultant urologist and Clinical Lead for Lower Urinary Tract Services at Royal Free Hospital, London. His main interests are urinary incontinence and bladder dysfunction, but he also looks after patients with haematuria, bladder tumour, peno-scrotal problems, prostate disorders, urethral stricture, lower urinary tract symptoms and recurrent UTI.
He is closely involved in education and research. He serves the UCL Medical School as an honorary associate professor and Lead for undergraduate urology teaching. He has published papers in peer-reviewed journals, written book chapters and been a principal investigator for multi-centre research projects.
He qualified and obtained his Masters in General Surgery in India prior to completing a six-year rotation in urology in London including the last two years as a fellow in Female and Reconstructive Urology at the prestigious Institute of Urology at UCLH, London. He is a member of the British Association of Urological Surgeons, European Association of Urology and International Continence Society.
He believes the practice of medicine must be a blend of art and science based on a scientific foundation and humane face. Professionalism should not overtake the personal touch and care must be provided with gentleness, sensitivity and respect. He considers his compassion, effective listening skills and affability as his assets. He is calm and unhurried and explains the pros and cons of any recommended treatment at length in a comprehensible language. Consequently, his patients find it easy to strike an instant rapport with him and leave the consultation knowing exactly how to contact him directly in case of any problems. He lives in Watford with his obstetrician wife and two daughters and enjoys music, cinema and sports.
