Professional profile

I qualified in 1993 from Bristol University Medical School. I went on to do my Basic Surgical Training in London and Higher Surgical Training in Oxford, gaining my MD in Genetic Polymorphisms in Bladder Cancer Angiogenesis in 2005. I passed FRCS (Urol) in 2007. I took up post as Consultant Urologist at Medway Maritime Hospital in December 2008. Whilst I am part of the urology on-call rota, I am experienced in and enjoys all aspects of general urology.

My special interests are minimally invasive treatments of the upper tract and all aspects of urological stone disease. I have been instrumental in setting up a fully comprehensive Stone Centre together with Mr John Palmer and Mr S Sriprasad. All cases are discussed and managed by the team and techniques include rigid and flexible ureteroscopy and laser stone fragmentation, percutaneous nephrolithotomy, extracorporeal lithotripsy and laparoscopy. I have strong links with Darent Valley Hospital where I operate every fortnight.

I am currently playing a lead role in The Productive Operating Theatre programme at Medway, which is committed to improving patient safety and working practice within theatres. I am also involved in implementing an Enhanced Recovery Programme whereby patient pre and post-operative care is streamlined to improve patient outcome and experience. I have recently published a series of articles relating to medico-legal issues in the British Journal of Urology.
