About me

Nick is an Interventional and Diagnostic Radiology Consultant at Imperial College Hospital NHS Trust in London.

Following a Biochemistry degree at Imperial College, Nick worked in the City for Credit Lyonnaise Rouse before taking up full-time training with the British Olympic Rowing Team.
After this break from work, he went on to study medicine, qualifying from Cambridge in 1997.

Nick completed surgical training at St George's Hospital, then transferred to St Mary's Hospital for radiology training with an Interventional Radiology Fellowship at Charing Cross, where he became a Consultant in 2008.

At Imperial he has focused on developing new services: Prostate Artery Embolization, fenestrated EVAR, venous stenting, and more recently Musculoskeletal Embolization for chronic tendon and joint pain.

He leads the Prostate Artery Embolization (PAE) service at Imperial and was the UK-ROPE Study primary operator in his department and also performed the first robotic PAE in the UK. Nick works closely with his Urology colleagues to offer the full range of treatments for benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH)
