Mr Arie Parnham

Consultant Urologist and Andrologist

MBChB, FRCS (Urol)


Specialises in

  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Foreskin problems
  • Penile cancer
  • Peyronie’s disease
  • Scrotal problems

I am a Consultant Urological Surgeon and Andrologist (treating men's health conditions, particularly relating to the problems with the penis and testes).

My NHS practice is predominantly based at the world-renowned Christie NHS Foundation Trust, where I provide a high volume men’s health service.

I graduated from the University of Birmingham in 2005 and completed my surgical training in the West Midlands, Oxford and finally the North West. I went on to complete a full fellowship at Europe’s largest dedicated andrology unit and have also completed observerships at Weil Cornell (New York) in male infertility, and Leuven University Hospital (Belgium). I am one of only a few surgeons in the UK that has undergone accredited training in Miami, USA in the infrapubic approach for penile prosthesis.

I am keenly involved in research, with active lab-based, translational and clinical projects across my field of expertise. I regularly publish and present internationally on subjects including penile cancer, erectile dysfunction, Peyronie’s disease, male infertility and other disorders of male sexual health.
