    Background Information 
    Professional profile:

    I am a consultant urological surgeon at the University Hospital, Cardiff. I qualified at Nottingham University and completed my surgical training in South Wales.

    To develop my sub-specialist interest in uro-oncology and stone surgery, I undertook a fellowship year in Brisbane, Australia. I have been awarded a Hunterian Professorship from the Royal College of Surgeons of England and Baus Silver medal for research for work into antibody targeting of bladder cancer.

    My clinical interests are general surgery, stone surgery and uro-oncology, including PSA/early prostate cancer.

    Personal profile:

    Away from clinical medicine my main priority is my family, with two young children.

    I also maintain a keen interest in sports, including rugby, golf and squash.
