Background Information 
Professional profile:

Mr Manoah Pancharatnam spent three years as a senior registrar in urology at the Institute of Urology in London and at the Royal Marsden. He gained invaluable experience there, working with world renowned surgeons.

Having completed his training, Mr Pancharatnam was offered a consultant post in Saudi Arabia, where he later became Head of Urology until his return to the UK. As a young consultant in the Middle East, he had an enormous variety of urological problems to deal with. This was where his interest in difficult reconstruction of the urinary tract began. Mr Pancharatnam reconstructed ureters, bladders, urethras and undertook very complex Vesico vaginal fistula repairs.

Mr Pancharatnam was then appointed Consultant Urological Surgeon at West Herts NHS Hospitals Trust where he was able to use his general surgical and urological experience to pioneer and reconstruct a bladder following a total cystoprostatectomy in 1995, which was the first in Hertfordshire and one of the earliest in the country. Mr Pancharatnam's main interest is bladder cancer, diagnosis and treatment. He performs an average of 20 total cystectomies a year. So far he has reconstructed 184 neo bladders which ranks as the highest for an individual surgeon in the UK. Read more information in this Guide to Neo Bladders

Although a large proportion of his time is spent dealing with prostate and bladder cancers, Mr Pancharatnam still continues with his early interest in paediatric urology, and at present he deals with common urological problems including hypospadias repairs.

Personal profile:

Mr Pancharatnam is married and has three children; his two boys are keen cricketers and represent Herts County, and his daughter is keen on ballet, netball and playing the piano. Mr Pancharatnam enjoys both playing and watching tennis, cricket, table tennis and badminton. His family's favourite holiday is in Portugal where they can all relax and enjoy the beach.
