Virtual consultations:

Having undertaken fellowship training in minimal access surgery (MAS) techniques at the Cleveland Clinic Ohio, and the University Hospital, Leipzig, I have led the development of the programme in urology at local and national levels during my 21 years as a consultant. Consequently, it is reasonable to say that I have the broadest range of minimal access surgery skills in Scotland having performed over 350 laparoscopic nephrectomies, partial nephrectomies, and  2200 laparoscopic or robot assisted radical prostatectomies. 

I have an active research interest in diseases of the prostate and have extensive experience of managing benign prostatic bladder outlet obstruction in addition to all general urology issues. With experience in Green Light Laser prostatectomy, UroLift® and REZUM® as well as 25 years experience of transurethral resection of the prostate I can offer guidance regarding the optimum intervention for an individual. I undertake rigorous audit of my surgical outcomes and contribute to national audits.

As a former Programme Director of the East of Scotland training Programme in Urology, I remain very active in skills training for minimal access surgery, have organised and participated in several courses for BAUS.

I am currently Chairman of Board of Trustees of the BJUI Charity and a Trustee of Prostate Scotland, having previously served the Executive Committee of the BAUS Section of Oncology as member, secretary and Chair.

Consultant Urological Surgeon and Honorary Senior Lecturer, Lothian University Hospitals NHS Trust.

In 2006 I helped establish Prostate Scotland with my wife and a group of like-minded individuals. The charity aims to raise awareness and educate Scottish men about the prostate and the diseases that affect it. Following significant growth, the charity was appointed its first director in 2008. 2009 marked the launch of Prostate Scotland's website and information campaign. 

Whilst work commitments currently demand a lot of time, I enjoy family life with my wife Alison and our son and daughter. When time permits I play golf, work in the garden and enjoy a bit of shooting.
