Mr Omar Al Kadhi
Consultant Urological Surgeon
MBChB, PhD, FRCS(Urol)
I specialise in general urology and urological cancers with specialist interest in bladder cancer. I provide tests and treatments for bothersome urinary symptoms in men and women, prostate cancer, urinary tract infections, prostatitis, scrotal lumps and bumps, circumcision, endoscopic removal of bladder lesions and pharmacological treatments for erectile dysfunction.
I have been a consultant urological surgeon since 2018. To date I have performed over 250 open and robotic pelvic cancer procedures, and more than 750 endoscopic procedures including TURBT, TURP and cystoscopy. I have specialist experience in the surgical treatments of bladder cancer including endoscopic, open and robotic surgery.
I am the lead for urological cancer at the Norfolk & Norwich University Hospital. I chair the weekly specialist multi-disciplinary meeting for urological cancers. I was appointed as the cancer lead for urology at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospitals in 2020.
I completed my senior urology training in Norwich and Cambridge and was awarded a PhD in prostate cancer from the University of East Anglia (UEA) in 2017. I completed a Fellowship in robotic prostatectomy and cystectomy in University College London Hospitals (UCLH), one of the highest volume centres for robotic urology in the UK.

When I am not at work I love spending my time with my family and exploring the countryside. I enjoy walking, cycling and following motor-sport.
