    Erectile Dysfunction
    I had a problem with ED for some years. I saw Gordon Muir who ran all the tests, scanned me and ruled out anything serious which was a great weight off my mind. He then prescribed tablets which solved the problem. At first I had some side effects but he told me to persist explaining they would probably stop. He was right. I have no hesitation in recommending him to any man with similar issues.

    Dr. Gordon performed a Greenlight PVP procedure on me for an enlarged prostate. This was after I had had a bladder stone operation under emergency (NHS) and was catheterised for 3 months. There was no date in sight with the NHS due to the COVID pandemic. Dr. Gordon was able to give me a consultation appointment 2 days after I had first called and schedule me in for the procedure within a week after the consultation. The procedure went very smoothly and I had no discomfort after the procedure. My catheter was removed 3 days after the operation.

    Benign Prostatic Enlargement Benign Prostate Hyperplasia
    I sought advice from Mr Muir on the interpretation of MRI scans performed at my local hospital in August 2019, but not followed up because that hospital seems to be struggling to cope with the additional load imposed by the COVID epidemic; and on the range of treatment options for BPH. His comments on both aspects were clear and balanced.

    Gordon was on a list of three Urologists provided by my private health insurer for me to choose from. I chose well. Besides being an obviously experienced professional and an educator in his field, I found his approach very collaborative. I was diagnosed with BPH and rather than being directed towards to one particular procedure, I was given a variety of options to go away and research and consider. I found this approach refreshing in that it gave me as the patient a level of ownership and involvement in my treatment that I haven’t experienced before. All of the pros and cons of each procedure were fully explained without any pressure, but with a sense of humour. We both independently arrived at the “Greenlight” laser procedure which I can now highly recommend for its minimally invasive features. A few days on and I barely know I’ve had surgery. There have been no surprises post-op and my recovery so far is “as described on the tin” His Senior Medical Secretary, Lauren, also did an excellent job of ensuring the organisation and logistics of hospitalisation went smoothly, and made me feel welcome to call at anytime for any reason. Together, Gordon and Lauren made me feel like I was their only patient. Surgeons have the unique ability to give you your life back. Gordon has done this for me and I’d highly recommend him.
