Professional profile

I provide general urological care with a special interest in patients with prostate, bladder and kidney cancer.

I am happy to see patients with scrotal swelling, difficulties with the foreskin, urinary tract infection, possible renal stones and difficulty passing urine. In addition many of my patients presented with blood in their urine, an elevated PSA blood test or other abnormal investigation. We provide a wide range of endoscopic and open procedures including removal of scrotal lumps, circumcision, cystoscopy, stone treatments, removal of bladder tumours, treatment of kidney lumps and prostate surgery and including laparoscopic surgery.

Currently the Vice Chair of the European Association of Urology Prostate cancer guidelines group. I work in association with the pharmaceutical industry in developing new treatments for prostate cancer and have an on going research programme in prostate cancer. We work as part of a multi-disciplinary team providing care for patients with bladder and prostate cancer in particular.

I'm also currently the Chair of the MAC at Spire Liverpool and Vice Chair of the SAC in Urology.
