About me

With an international reputation as a clinician, researcher, communicator and innovator, Roger Kirby specialises in prostate cancer and benign prostatic disease (BPH). He was among the first in the UK to introduce medical therapy for BPH, radical surgery for prostate cancer and minimally invasive treatments such as laser- and robot-assisted prostate surgery. He has performed over 3,000 radical prostatectomy operations, for the past ten years using exclusively the robot-assisted technique. In 2006 he was awarded the St Peter’s Medal by the British Association of Urological Surgeons; in 2016 he was awarded the Clement Price Thomas Award for Services to Surgery by the Royal College of Surgeons. He is a Trustee and Council member of the Royal Society of Medicine, and is President of the RSM Urology Section for 2016-17.

Professor Kirby has written over 65 books and published more than 350 peer-reviewed papers. He founded and edited the journal Prostate Cancer and Prostatic Diseases as well as the journal Trends in Urology and Men’s Health, which he continues to edit.

Having a long-standing interest in the wider issues of men’s health and patient safety, in 2005 he created The Prostate Centre, a private men’s health clinic in London. It has a firmly established reputation for excellence through clinical governance, protocols, patient information, safety and support, good service and multidisciplinary team working.

Professor Kirby was Chairman of the charity Prostate UK until 2010, and continues as a Trustee of Prostate Cancer UK. He is also a founding member and Secretary/Trustee of The Urology Foundation. For both these charities Professor Kirby has personally raised over £3 million through marathon running, mountain climbing, trekking and cycling challenges.
