Professional profile

I qualified with a first-class honours degree from Nottingham University Medical School in 1998. After basic surgical training I undertook a period of research focusing on the molecular basis of prostate cancer, leading to the award of a Doctor of Medicine.

My urology training was undertaken in the Trent region, during which time I spent a dedicated fellowship year training in laparoscopic surgery. In 2010, I was awarded the Keith Yeates Gold Medal by the Royal College of Surgeons for outstanding performance in the FRCS (Urol) examinations.

Following completion of surgical training I spent a further year training in Laparoscopic and Robotic Urology in Melbourne, Australia.

I am a Consultant Urological Surgeon at Nottingham City Hospital, with a specialist interest in minimally invasive surgery, prostate and renal cancer, and all aspects of general urology.

I am the lead cancer clinician for the Urology Department and Director of Robotic Urological Surgery at Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust. I have proven expertise in robotic surgery for prostatic and renal cancer, and I'm an external Robotic Trainer/Mentor.

I am also a reviewer for the Journal of Urology and European Urology, and have published extensively in the field of urological cancer.
