Dr. Esham specializes in kidney stone treatment, enlarged prostate treatment, urinary incontinence, kidney and prostate cancer surgery and urethral stricture disease treatment. He is originally from the Portsmouth area, and is a third-generation physician. "My father and uncle are both physicians in Portsmouth," he said.
