I am currently a substantive Consultant Urologist and an associate lecturer at Cambridge University Hospitals working at Addenbrooke’ s and Princess of Wales (Ely) Hospitals. I have special expertise in treating kidney stones (using laser, keyhole surgery and shockwave lithotripsy), diagnosing and endoscopically managing ureteric and kidney cancer, managing male and female lower urinary tract disorders (due to enlarged prostate, bladder dysfunction or incontinence) using standard and mini-invasive advanced techniques. I have a special interest in managing sexual erectile dysfunction and low testosterone in addition to my skills in managing all aspects of general benign and cancer urology conditions (blood in urine, abnormal PSA, pelvic pain, chronic prostatitis, recurrent urinary tract infections, cystitis) and kidney infections.
I joined St Georges’ Hospital Medical School and received my medical qualification from London University. I completed my basic surgical training in Yorkshire. Having a curious mind and an academic interest, I undertook a two-year research fellowship at the Bristol Urological Institute with world experts in the field of lower urinary dysfunction, incontinence and urodynamics. My research led to several publications and was awarded the Doctor of Medicine (MD) degree from London University. I have gained broad experience in General Urology by joining the South West of England Specialist Registrar higher surgical training programme in Urology for over five years.
I was appointed as a clinical instructor in Urology in the United State of America (USA). During a busy year at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Centre, Cleveland Clinic and the Arthur Smith Institute of Urology in New York, I developed special expertise in all aspects of Endourology treating all types of urinary stones and treatment of upper tract urothelial cancer. I have been trained in advanced minimally invasive urology techniques including laparoscopic and robotic surgery to treat kidney and prostate cancer.
I enjoy training future doctors and urologists and have a special interest in education and research. I am an associate Lecturer at Cambridge University and Honorary Visiting Senior Lecturer at Anglia Ruskin University. I am currently the lead for Cambridge University medical students. I contribute, as a faculty, to training courses for national and international residents and established young urologists. I have been invited as an expert speaker to local, national and international meetings. My hard work was recognized with prizes and awards. As an acknowledgement of my achievements, I was included in the fifth and sixth editions of “Marquis Who’s Who in Medicine and Healthcare” and was nominated for “The Man of the Year in Medicine and Healthcare” in 2010.
I have contributed to literature with a number of book chapters and published several articles relating to kidney stones, bladder and prostate cancer in addition to bladder and prostate urinary symptoms. I have acted as a reviewer for several medical journals.
In my practice, I recognise the threefold professional duty to treat, learn and teach focusing on safe patient journey and ensuring that high quality healthcare remains my main priority at all times. I believe that treatment should be individualised and tailored to patient’s preference in the context of up to date scientific evidence.
