About me

After surgical training in the NHS & Military hospitals on the South Coast of the UK, Mr Philip Charlesworth went to the University of Oxford in 2004 to begin a post-graduate degree in the Molecular Genetics of Urological Malignancies, at the Institute of Molecular Medicine, University of Oxford.

In 2007 Mr Philip Charlesworth initiated his Specialist Surgical training in Urology & Uro-Oncology within the hospitals of Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Northamptonshire & Oxfordshire. The final years of specialist training were concentrated on robotic surgery, minimally invasive surgery & open surgery for major urological cancers and subsequent surgical reconstruction.

In 2012, Mr Philip Charlesworth was awarded a British Urological Foundation Robotic Preceptorship with Professor Indebir Gill and his robotic surgical team at the University of Southern California Institute of Urology, Los Angeles, California, USA. Professor Inderbir Gill is arguably one of the greatest minimally invasive surgeons in the world. Mr Philip Charlesworth also has experience working with the robotic surgical teams of Regina Elena Hospital, National Cancer Institute, Rome, Italy, Harlev University Hospital, Copenhagen, and the Institute of Karolinska, Stockholm.

Mr Philip Charlesworth was appointed substantive Consultant at the Royal Berkshire Hospital in 2012, and joined the Reading Urology Partnership in 2013. Over this time he has established himself as one of the leaders in pelvic uro-oncology (major prostate & bladder cancer) in the region.

Mr Charlesworth has performed approximately 450 complex robotic major pelvic uro-oncological cancer operations in the past few years, and is ranked as one of the highest volume surgeons according to nationally published statistics.
