At the age of 26 passed the FRCS and then did my higher surgical training at Guys, Sydenham Children’s Hospital, The Royal Marsden and the Institute of Urology London. Worked in Saudi Arabia as Consultant and Head of the Department of Urology which offered a very wide range of invaluable experience.
Appointed as a full time Consultant Urological Surgeon in 1993 at West Herts.
Pioneered the first successful Bladder replacement in Hertfordshire in 1995. I have carried out 187 Neo bladder replacements since then, possibly the largest number of these operations in the country.
I was the first Chairman of the Mount Vernon Cancer network.
Lead clinician in Urology at West Herts.NHS Trust
Lead for Urological cancer
I am married to Victoria and we have 3 children. Both our sons are doing medicine in London they also played county cricket which I enjoyed watching. Our youngest daughter has just started university doing medicine.
I have taken semi retirement and no longer do the complex major operations such as Radical Cystectomy and Bladder reconstruction and Radical Prostatectomy..
I still continue with the routine urological work and Paediatric Urology.
