Background Information 
Professional profile:

Having completed my medical degree at St. Bartholomew’s Hospital Medical College in London, I undertook my Basic Surgical Training in Ipswich, St. Bartholomew’s Hospital and Great Ormond Street Hospital, London. After a period of research at Great Ormond Street Hospital and Institute of Urology, UCL, I was awarded an MD by the University of London. I undertook my specialist training in the Wessex region, working in the large hospitals in Hampshire. During my research period and subsequent registrar training, I published numerous papers on all aspects of urology in leading international urological journals. My subspecialist interest and development has taken me to leading units in London, Sheffield, USA (Dallas and North Carolina) and Australia, where I undertook a one year senior fellowship in Perth, Western Australia.

Mr Thiruchelvam is the clinical lead in his long-standing specialist area of interest, bladder dysfunction, incontinence, reconstruction and urethral stricture disease at Addenbrookes Hospital and has been Clinical Lead for Urology at Hinchingbrooke Hospital. In 2013 and 2014 Mr Thiruchelvam wrote three book chapters and two peer-reviewed articles on male urinary symptoms and contributed to NICE discussions and NHS Horizon Scanning documents on male urinary symptoms. He is an elected member of British Association of Urology Surgeons and European Association of Urology (EAU) sections on bladder dysfunction and an invited member of the EAU Young Academic Section on male urinary symptoms. Mr Thiruchelvam has also spoken on this subject recently in national and international urology meetings. Mr Thiruchelvam is also the Clinical Lead for Urodynamics, the study of bladder function, bladder obstruction and urinary symptoms. He has lectured and written on the subject and has also run successful Study Days on Urodynamics.

I am a partner in the Cambridge Urology Clinic, together with my Addenbrooke’s colleagues, Vincent Gnanapragasam and William Turner, Alex Colquhoun and Sami Hayek based exclusively at the Spire Cambridge Lea Hospital.
