My specialist interests include the treatment of kidney cancer and upper tract urothelial cancer using open, laparoscopic and robotic techniques. I also specialise in prostate cancer diagnostics and all modalities of treatment for benign prostate hyperplasia (BPH) and bladder outflow obstruction in men.

I was born in Leicestershire and studied Medicine at the University of Manchester, graduating in 2011. During my undergraduate career, I was awarded an intercalated 1st Class(Hons) Pathology BSc. Over the subsequent decade I trained in General & Urological Surgery in the North West of England. I successfully completed the FRCS(Urol) examination and was awarded the Keith Yeates Gold Medal for outstanding performance in 2019. I have also received further academic awards from the British Association of Urological Surgeons (BAUS), Section of Endourology.

I was the Chairman of the British Association of Urological Surgeons (BAUS) Section of Trainees in 2020 and as such, sat on the Specialty Advisory Committee (SAC) for Urology. I was also nominated for the BAUS Bronze Cystoscope award in 2020.

I have an active involvement in teaching, research and quality improvement with multiple authored peer reviewed publications and learning modules.

I currently practise as a Consultant Urological Surgeon in Salford Royal NHS Trust, part of the Northern Care Alliance.
