Mr Simon Phipps
BM BS, BMedSci, DM, FRCS (Urol)
I qualified from Nottingham University Medical School in 1997 and trained in general urology in the East of Scotland. Whilst in training, I undertook an innovative two-year research project into the relationship of prostatic tissue mechanical characteristics with benign and malignant prostate disease at the University of Edinburgh for which I was awarded the DM degree.
Sub-specialty training took me to Australia, where I spent a fellowship year training in upper tract laparoscopy and endourology at the St George Hospital in Sydney, before returning to Scotland as a fellow in endourology at the Scottish Lithotriptor Centre in Edinburgh. I have developed sub-specialty expertise in laparoscopic renal surgery, extracorporeal shockwave lithotripsy, rigid and flexible ureteroscopy with laser stone fragmentation, and percutaneous stone surgery.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Simon Phipps at Spire include:
