Academic Background

After general surgical training in the Royal Air Force, Mr Steve Foley joined the Institute of Urology, London, to research and specialise in female urology, bladder dysfunction and spinal cord injury.

He was appointed as the lead specialist in female urology at the Royal Berkshire Hospital NHS Foundation Trust in January 2001.

Over the past decade Mr Foley has developed an extensive experience in all aspects of female urology especially incontinence, and has built up a wide range of surgical and non-surgical options to manage these sometimes very difficult problems. This is also the case with interstitial cystitis.

Professional Profile

Mr Foley’s clinics at Reading Urology offer a comprehensive diagnostic and investigative service for continence and general urology problems.  He works closely with the Physiotherapy Department at The Berkshire Independent Hospital and the Berkshire Continence Service.

Over the past 5 years Mr Foley has been one of the pioneers of the surgical management of male incontinence (particularly the ‘Male Sling’ – following prostate cancer surgery). This is proving to be highly effective in selected men. He is now one of the most experienced Surgeons in the UK with this type of operation, and regularly trains other UK Surgeons how to perform it.

He has held numerous teaching sessions in Berkshire on surgical techniques, attracting many overseas surgeons and is currently involved in several international research studies in the fields of incontinence and urinary tract infections.

He is Managing Partner of Reading Urology Private Practice Partnership which was formed in 2002.


During 2014-15 Mr Foley has been invited to lecture extensively.  He is a recognised world expert in female urology, lecturing in Australia, Argentina, USA and several lecturing posts in Europe on the topics of incontinence, painful bladder conditions and recurrent urinary tract infections.  He has been invited back to Australia this October 2015, to lecture on male incontinence.
