Background Information 
Professional profile:
Mr Laurence Stewart graduated from Aberdeen University Medical School in 1982. He gained broad experience across all surgical disciplines before training in Urology in Aberdeen and Belfast. He subsequently sub-specialised in female and reconstructive urology in Cardiff, Christchurch (New Zealand) and Duke University in North Carolina, USA. He took up his current post as Consultant Urological Surgeon in 1996 and has introduced a wide range of reconstructive treatments to Edinburgh, most recently establishing the use of botulinum toxin (Botox) for urinary incontinence.

He was a research Fellow in Belfast for two years, studying bladder cancer, and achieved his MD thesis in 1994. He has published widely on this and other urological topics. Mr Stewart has authored the chapter on Urological Surgery in Principles and Practice of Surgery and co-authored the chapter on Kidney and Genito-Urinary Disease in Davidson's Principles and Practice of Medicine. He retains an active interest in training and is the convenor of the Core Skills in Urology course in the Royal College of Surgeons, Edinburgh.

He was the lead clinician for Urology in Edinburgh from 1998 to 2007, during which time he helped establish minimal access surgery and promoted the role for laser prostatectomy and specialist physiotherapy in both male and female urinary incontinence.
