Professional profile

I have a broad training in General Urology, form the West Midlands Higher Surgical Training Scheme. I have subspecialty interests in stone disease and laparoscopic kidney surgery. I also see and treat all manner of Urological conditions. I have been a Consultant Urological Surgeon since February 2012, providing the above services, initially at Aintree University Hospital Liverpool, where I set up the laparoscopy (keyhole surgery) service and laser stone treatment service. I now practice at Heart of England NHS Trust.

I treat all Urological disease, including voiding problems, penile and scrotal surgery and investigation of urinary problems. I specialize in stone treatment and laparoscopic surgery.

Since being appointed as a Consultant, I have performed 90 nephrectomy (kidney removal) operations. All my data is submitted and available to view on the British Association of Urological Surgeons website (BAUS). I have performed more than 100 ureteroscopic laser stone surgeries. Recently, this data is also being submitted to BAUS, but not available for viewing yet.

I am the Audit Lead and antimicrobial lead for Urology at Heart of England NHS Trust.
