Mr Simon Bott
MD, FRCS (Urol), FEBU
I am now a consultant urologist and perform over 100 template biopsy procedures a year, am involved with the early trials in prostate cancer focal therapy and perform radical robotic prostatectomy.
Having qualified in 1994 from St Bartholomew's and the Royal London Hospitals, I underwent six years of basic surgical training in and around London. I subsequently went into a period of research into prostate cancer at the Institute of Urology, University College London. I was awarded an MD from the University of London for my thesis.
I started specialty training in urology in 2003, based at St George's Hospital spending five years in centres in the south of England gaining expertise in general urology and also developing a particular interest in prostate cancer, laser prostate surgery and stone disease. My colleagues and I were the first in Europe to describe template prostate biopsies to assist in the diagnosis of prostate cancer.
I have published over 40 peer-reviewed papers, presented my work at national and international meetings and wrote and edited a number of books.
