Mr Manit Arya has a specialist interest in the diagnosis and treatment of prostate cancer. He offers the most up do date diagnostic procedures such as contrast enhanced multi-parametric MRI of the prostate and template transperineal prostate biopsies (the latter is more accurate and associated with a significantly lower risk of infection in comparison to the traditional transrectal biopsies).

Mr Arya performs the latest minimally invasive innovative techniques in the treatment of either primary prostate cancer or prostate cancer that has recurred following previous radiotherapy (radio-recurrent prostate cancer). These techniques include focal HIFU (high intensity focused ultrasound) and focal cryotherapy. These cutting edge procedures avoid the harm done by radical surgery and radiotherapy which  often affect quality of life and sexual function.

Mr Manit Arya is currently one of the the largest volume prostate HIFU and cryotherapy surgeons in Europe. He is an internationally recognised mentor for both focal prostate HIFU and cryotherapy.Manit also specialises in the treatment of benign, non-cancerous disorders of the prostate including BPH (benign prostatic hyperplasia).

Mr Arya will see patients from 18 yrs+ (with diagnosed prostate cancer)
