I graduated from Aberdeen University Medical School in 1982. I gained broad experience across all surgical disciplines before training in Urology in Aberdeen and Belfast. I subsequently sub-specialised in female and reconstructive urology in Cardiff, Christchurch (New Zealand) and Duke University in North Carolina, USA. I took up my current post as Consultant Urological Surgeon in 1996 and have introduced a wide range of reconstructive treatments to Edinburgh, most recently establishing the use of botulinum toxin (Botox) for urinary incontinence.
I was a research Fellow in Belfast for two years, studying bladder cancer, and achieved his MD thesis in 1994. I have published widely on this and other urological topics. I have 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. I retain an active interest in training and is the convenor of the Core Skills in Urology course in the Royal College of Surgeons, Edinburgh.
I was the lead clinician for Urology in Edinburgh from 1998 to 2007, during which time I helped establish minimal access surgery and promoted the role for laser prostatectomy and specialist physiotherapy in both male and female urinary incontinence.
