Specialises in

I am a consultant urological surgeon at the University Hospital, Cardiff. I qualified at Nottingham University and completed my surgical training in South Wales.

To develop my sub-specialist interest in uro-oncology and stone surgery, I undertook a fellowship year in Brisbane, Australia. I have been awarded a Hunterian Professorship from the Royal College of Surgeons of England and Baus Silver medal for research for work into antibody targeting of bladder cancer.

My clinical interests are general surgery, stone surgery and uro-oncology, including PSA/early prostate cancer.
