I have been a Consultant Urological Surgeon at Glan Clwyd Hospital since March 2016. Prior to this, my training in Urological Surgery spanned over 12 years during which I developed my expertise in minimal invasive pelvic cancer surgery including laparoscopic (key hole) and robotic surgery.
I am versatile in the field of general urology but my special interest is in the treatment of prostate cancer using laparoscopic and robotic surgical techniques. I am an expert in prostate cancer and in addition to my training, I undertook a two year research in prostate cancer at the University of Liverpool where I was awarded a Doctor of Medicine degree for my postgraduate thesis in the diagnosis of prostate cancer.
To date, I have performed vast number of urological procedures including key hole surgical removal of the kidney and prostate.
I am currently engaged with the development of Robotic Surgery in North Wales.
In addition to my clinical work, I am keenly contributing to medical education. I am proud to be an Assigned Educational Supervisor, an honorary clinical teacher at the School of Medicine, Cardiff University and Associate of the Royal College of surgeon Edinburgh's Faculty of Surgical Trainers.
Furthermore, I currently hold an honorary consultant urological and Robotic Surgeon contract with the Cardiff and Royal Liverpool University Teaching Hospitals.
My research activities in prostate cancer has been recognised with academic prizes including:- 1. Norman Gibbon Travel Scholarship Award – A travel fellowship awarded at the Norman Gibbon Urology meeting in recognition of excellence, 12/02/2016. 2. The Mary Duguid Prize (a prize open to all trainees on the Wirral) - best paper ‘Transperineal template guided saturation biopsy: outcome of a modified technique’, 03/12/2009. 3.

In my spare time, I relax with my beautiful wife, my daughter and two sons. I enjoy music, dancing and travelling. We have recently moved to the countryside and I'm looking forward to doing some walking among other outdoor activities.Back to top
