Mr Ivo Dukic is an experienced Consultant Urological Surgeon at University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Trust. Having qualified from the University of Manchester in 2004, he completed his specialist urology training in 2014 in the Manchester region, before completing a prestigious fellowship at the Bristol Urological Institute in endourology and laparoscopic kidney surgery.
He sub-specialises in endourology, general urology, and health informatics. Endourology is the use of cameras (a minimally invasive approach) in urological surgery. He uses these cameras along with other technology such as laser devices to treat a wide variety of conditions including kidney stones, enlarged prostate, ureteric cancer, and bladder cancer. He is also interested in using technology to improve the way healthcare is delivered and is involved in several research projects in this area. He is a high-volume stone surgeon delivering expert stone care for Birmingham patients.
He is a strong advocate for patient education and believes that patients should be fully informed to make their own decisions about their diseases and treatment options. He regularly teaches national courses for trainees and is a member of the urology exit exam panel for urology training (FRCS Urol MCQ panel), faculty for the National Urology Bootcamp and educational lead for urology at University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Trust.
