Mr Giovanni Losco
Originally from Christchurch, Giovanni joined Urology Associates after subspecialty training in the United Kingdom. He completed fellowship training in paediatric urology at the Diana, Princess of Wales Children’s Hospital in Birmingham and gained extensive experience in reconstructive urology, female urology, pelvic organ prolapse, urethroplasty and urological care of spinal injuries while working at the London Spinal Cord Injury Centre, Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital and the Institute of Urology, University College Hospital, London. Prior to that, he worked at Concord Repatriation General Hospital in Sydney where he focussed on bladder dysfunction with a particular interest in male and female incontinence.
In 2018 he was awarded a Travelling Fellowship where he spent time in the USA operating with world-leading surgeons in erectile dysfunction: Dean Knoll (Nashville, Tennessee) and Brian Christine (Birmingham, Alabama). He is able to share these skills and new techniques for the benefit of men in the South Island.
Before leaving New Zealand, Giovanni undertook his post-graduate training in Christchurch, Wellington and Palmerston North. He is delighted to be back in the South Island with his wife Emma and three girls, Isabella, Bianca and Hettie.
Alongside maintaining an interest in general urology in both adults and children, Giovanni holds a number of leadership positions: Clinical Director of Urology, Canterbury DHB; Chair, NZ Urology Clinical Directors’ Group; Director, Urology Associates; Trustee, Canterbury Urology Research Trust; Clinical Senior Lecturer, University of Otago, Christchurch; Examiner in Urology, Royal Australasian College of Surgeons; Prevocational Educational Supervisor, Medical Council of New Zealand; Clinical Lead for Urology, South Canterbury DHB, Timaru Hospital; consultant urologist, Burwood Spinal Unit; and sits on a number of ACC and Ministry of Health committees concerning reducing harm from surgical mesh.
