I qualified at Cambridge University, then moved into a London training scheme. I completed my six year training programme in urology in the West London teaching hospitals and gained valuable experience in urological cancer and minimally invasive access during a laparoscopic fellowship year in Sydney, Australia. I am currently appointed as a consultant at The Lister Hospital, Stevenage. I have produced national guidelines in consenting for urological surgery.

My interests include the management of prostate cancer including Da Vinci robotic prostatectomy, laparoscopic nephrectomy as well as the laser treatment of stones. I also perform vasectomy reversal and cover the majority of general urology.
