Professional profile

I am a teaching hospital consultant specialising in the use of robotics for prostate treatment – da Vinci prostatectomy. One of the leading innovators in this technology, I am one of the few formally trained robotic surgeons in the UK.

Over the years, I have been instrumental in the development of our understanding of the nature of prostate disease. This includes treatment techniques that can be pivotal in preserving normal sexual activity following prostate surgery. Laser surgery treatments for enlarged prostates can mean that normal bladder and sexual functions can be resumed almost immediately after treatment.

I also have an interest in kidney surgery using robotic techniques and has had excellent results from this work.
