About Sussex Prostate Centre

The SPC specialises in treating prostate diseases. We are run by an expert consultant urologist who is dedicated to improving care for prostate sufferers. The SPC runs clinics in Brighton, Eastbourne, Bexhill, Hastings & Benenden. All major surgery is performed via the Michelham private patients unit at Eastbourne DGH. This combines all the advantages of private healthcare with the facilities & back-up of the regional centre for prostate cancer surgery. Scans & other investigations can be performed at all our clinics but specialised MRI Fusion biopsies are only available in Eastbourne.
