Background Information 
Professional profile:

Sami has been trained at St Georges’ Hospital Medical School in London. He completed his basic surgical training in Yorkshire. Having a curious mind and an academic interest, he undertook a research fellowship at the Bristol Urological Institute with world experts in the field of lower urinary dysfunction, incontinence and urodynamics. Sami has gained broad experience in General Urology by joining the Southwest of England Specialist Registrar higher surgical training program.

Sami was then appointed as a clinical instructor in Urology in the United State of America (USA). During a busy year at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Centre, Cleveland Clinic and the Arthur Smith Institute of Urology in New York, he developed special expertise in all aspects of Endourology treating all types of urinary stones (with laser, keyhole surgery and shockwave lithotripsy) as well as endoscopic treatment of upper tract urothelial kidney cancer.  He was also trained in advanced urology techniques including laparoscopic and robotic surgery to treat kidney and prostate cancer. Sami had formal training as an expert witness. He has admitting rights to the Sprie Cambridge Lea, Cambridge Nuffield and Melberry Huntington hospitals.

Being organised and a team player led Sami to take on several management and leadership roles. He is currently the UK board member for the International Young Urologist Association (IYUA), the local champion of the British Association of Urological Surgeons (BAUS) for Cambridge University

Sami has acted as the UK trainees’ representative on the board of the European Society of Residents in Urology (ESRU) as well as the Senior Urology Registrars Group (SURG) representative on the Andrology executive committee for BAUS, a member of the International Continence Society Ethics Committee and a trainees’ representative for the British Medical Association (BMA)

In his practice, Sami focuses on safe patients’ journey and ensures that high quality healthcare remains his main priority at all times.  He believes that treatment should be individualized and tailored to patient’s preference in the context of up to date scientific evidence
