Mr Simon Wilkinson
MB BS, BSc, FRCS (Urol), FEBU
I am highly skilled in all aspects of open and endoscopic surgery for urological diseases. My specialist interest is in the diagnosis and treatment of prostate, bladder and renal cancers, with a particular emphasis on laparoscopic and robot assisted surgery.
I graduated in 1996 from the University of London with distinction. I undertook early surgical training at the Bristol Royal Infirmary and then completed a year of research at the University of Chicago, USA, under the tutelage of Professor Gerald Chodak, one of the world's leading authorities on prostate cancer.
I completed urological training in the Wessex region including the cancer centres of Southampton, Portsmouth and Bournemouth. In 2008 I was awarded a fellowship by the Endourology Society to undertake advanced training in laparoscopic and robotic surgery at the University of Toronto, Canada, a world renowned centre of excellence for urological disease and minimally invasive surgery.
In 2009 I was awarded another fellowship, this time by the Royal College of Surgeons of England, to undertake a further year of sub-specialist expertise in complex open and laparoscopic cancer surgery at University Hospital Birmingham.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Simon Wilkinson at Spire include:
Urology: Urological cancers, urodynamics, urinary tract infections, prostate cancer, kidney cancer, incontinence, erectile dysfunction, bladder cancer, benign prostate diseases.
I have presented internationally and published extensively in the peer-reviewed journals in the field of prostate cancer including use of complementary therapies.
