About me

Professor Shergill, Consultant Urologist in Wrexham, North Wales, and Urologist in Chester, Cheshire, is delighted to see patients and advise on General/Core urological conditions as well as specialist conditions such as contemprary prostate cancer diagnosis, laser management of kidney stones, and minimally invasive treatments for benign prostate disorders (Urolift and HOLEP) and all urological conditions.

Mr Shergill qualified from Charing Cross & Westminster Medical School in 1997. During his medical student training, he carried out 1 year full-time research leading to a 1st Class BSc(Honours) degree, from the University of London. The results were presented as posters at national and international meetings. He also managed to receive academic distinctions by obtaining The Medical Research Council (MRC) Intercalated Course Award and The Nuffield Foundation Undergraduate Research Bursary.

Mr Shergill completed Basic Surgical Training on the respected Oxford Rotation, working at prestigious hospitals such as the Radcliffe Infirmary, Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre and The John Radcliffe Hospital, in Oxford (1998 to 2000). He was one of the first candidates to sit and successfully pass the new MRCS examination in 2000.

Mr Shergill undertook a period of full-time research towards an MD thesis at the Institute of Urology, University of London between 2002 and 2004, prior to starting his Higher Urological Training. The research was into Predictive and Prognostic Markers in Prostate Cancer, in men undergoing Radical Prostatectomy surgery. The project design, and retrieval of archival radical prostatectomy specimens, required close liaison with urologists, pathologists and basic scientists, and highlighted Mr Shergill's ethos of multi-disciplinary team-working. During this research period, he used one of the most innovative and recently developed techniques in molecular pathology - The Tissue Microarray - and was, at that time, one of the only clinician scientists in the UK who was using and developing Tissue Microarray techniques.

Mr Shergill commenced Higher Surgical Training in Urology in 2004, on the North Thames Deanery Rotation. During this time, he worked in several high-throughput specialist centres, gaining experience and training in 21st Century state-of-the art management of Urinary tract Stone disease, Laser Prostatectomy, Complex Uro-oncology disease, as well as the management of benign and malignant urological disease using Laparoscopic and Minimally Invasive surgery. During 2008, he successfully passed the final FRCS(Urol) examination, and then completed Higher Urology Training in April 2010. In 2013 Mr Shergill completed FEBU European examination.
