Professional profile

Having undertaken fellowship training in minimal access surgery (MAS) techniques at the Cleveland Clinic, Ohio, and the University Hospital, Leipzig, I have led the development of the programme in urology at local and national levels. I have the broadest range of minimal access surgery skills in Scotland and have performed over 350 laparoscopic nephrectomies and almost 1000 laparoscopic prostatectomies. I am trained in Green Light Laser prostatectomy and will soon be trained in the UroLift procedure. I undertake rigorous audit of my surgical outcomes and contribute to national audits by the British Association of Urological Surgeons (BAUS).

A former Programme Director of the East of Scotland training Programme in Urology, I remain very active in skills training for minimal access surgery, organising and participating in several courses which are run for BAUS. I am currently Chairman of the Executive Committee of the BAUS Section of Oncology, which I have served in various roles since 2011.

Personal profile

In 2006 I helped establish Prostate Scotland with my wife and a group of like-minded individuals. The charity aims to raise awareness and educate Scottish men about the prostate and the diseases that affect it. Following significant growth, the charity was appointed its first director in 2008. 2009 marked the launch of Prostate Scotland's website and information campaign. 

Whilst work commitments currently demand a lot of time, I enjoy family life with my wife Alison and our son and daughter. When time permits I play golf, work in the garden and enjoy a bit of shooting.
