Mr Simon Phipps

Consultant Urologist

BM BS, BMedSci, DM, FRCS (Urol)


Specialises in

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-speciality training took me to Australia, where I spent a fellowship year training in upper tract laparoscopy and endourology at the St George Hospitals in Sydney, before returning to Scotland as fellow in endourology at the Scottish Lithotriptor Centre in Edinburgh. I have developed subspecialty expertise in laparoscopic renal surgery, extracorporeal shockwave lithotripsy, rigid and flexible ureteroscopy with laser stone fragmentation, and percutaneous stone surgery.
