About

Mr Kaba is a Consultant Urological Surgeon practicing at the Nuffield Health Warwickshire Hospital in Leamington Spa. His NHS practice is at South Warwickshire NHS Foundation Trust (SWFT) where he is also an Honorary Clinical Lecturer to Warwick Medical School. Mr Kaba has been appointed to the Medical Advisory Panel for “Bladder Health UK”, the largest UK charity for bladder problems. 
 
He strives to provide an open and personalised approach to care. He is keen to provide a service, made easy for both the referring clinician and the patient. 
 

He specialises in general adult urological problems – urinary infections, male urinary/prostatic symptoms (LUTS/BPH), investigations for PSA/prostate cancer, haematuria (blood in urine), female incontinence, impotence, penile and testicular problems. He has a sub-specialist interest in lower urinary tract dysfunction (BPH) and functional urology.  He also offers Rezum and conventional TURP for men with lower urinary tract dysfunction. 

He attended the prestigious Guys’, Kings’ and St Thomas’ (GKT) school of medicine in London.  During this time he was awarded the Harold Ellis Prize (Highly Commended) in Surgery in addition to numerous other undergraduate and postgraduate prizes.  He completed an elective in Urology at the Karolinska Institutet in Stockholm, Sweden under eminent Professors.

He embarked on his surgical training at the Oxford School of Surgery where he also taught anatomy to medical students at the University of Oxford.  He completed his Urology training in the North West of England working at a variety of Hospitals including The Christie Hospital (Europe's largest single-site cancer centre) and The Manchester Royal Infirmary NHS Foundation Trusts.

Aside from his practice, Mr Kaba is dedicated to both research, having published and presented at a national and international level in the field of Urology, and to teaching and training.  One of his publications was voted the Top 25 “HOTTEST ARTICLES" by the International Journal of Surgery in that year and is still one of the most popular papers by that journal since its creation. 

Mr Kaba is heavily involved in medical education. He is a personal and clinical tutor at the University of Warwick Medical School. Mr Kaba is also an examiner for pre-registration medical students and on courses related to the postgraduate exam in Urology.
