About Kevin Turner MA DM FRCS(UROL)

Urologists treat conditions of the urinary system (kidneys and bladder) in both men and women, and conditions of the penis, scrotum and prostate in men. Kevin Turner has been a Urology specialist for more than 20 years and has worked as a consultant Urologist in Bournemouth since 2007. He trained at some of the premier urology units in the world (Oxford, Edinburgh, and Melbourne) and he has continued to develop his interests and expertise as a consultant. His passion is to blend first class contemporary knowledge with an empathetic jargon-free communication style, and to offer state-of-the art surgical techniques. In most cases Mr Turner will then perform a physical examination before summarising his findings and recommendations. Potential options will be discussed and the benefits and side effects of any medication and procedures will be discussed in detail.
