"It is a pleasure to work at Spire Southampton. there is a genuine wish to put the patient first and the resultant enthusiasm is visible in each member of staff."


Specialises in

I have been a consultant Urologist since 2016 at University Hospital Southampton. I performed the majority of my urological training in the Wessex region and gained my doctoral thesis from the University of Southampton. I provide treatments for all general urological conditions including, benign prostate problems, urinary symptoms, stone disease, erectile dysfunction and urinary tract infections. My sub-specialist interest includes treatments for bladder, kidney, prostate and testis cancers. When surgery is the appropriate treatment I offer, open, laparoscopic and robotic surgery as needed.

I was awarded the Geoffery Chisolm Gold medal for best performance at the Urology MSc.

My sub-specialty training, including a fellowship in a high volume cancer centre in Vancouver (Canada), has allowed me to focus my specialty practice into Urological cancers.

My research into the molecular pathways of bladder cancer has generated numerous peer reviewed publications and my research activity continues with both clinical trials and basic science projects.

I am a reviewer for the journals Urological Oncology and European Journal of Surgery.
