I commenced my post as consultant urological surgeon at the Royal Liverpool University hospital in Oct 2010.
Introduced robotic prostate cancer surgery to Meseyside in 2011, and now perform over 100 robotic cases per year including robot assisted radical prostatectomy, robotic partial nephrectomy and robot assisted pyeloplasty.
As a member of the regional specialist prostate, bladder and kidney multidisciplinary cancer team I treat urological cancer cases from around the region and nationally.
