About me

I am a consultant urological surgeon specialising in Uro-oncology and minimally invasive surgery.

I have built a comprehensive practice at Southampton comprising general and diagnostic urology as well as my specialist field of Uro-Oncology. I mainly specialise in prostate cancer diagnostics and treatment. I am involved in developing image guided targeted biopsy services (MRI-US fusion) and am one of a few to be able to provide men with all options including laparoscopic and robotic prostatectomy, high intensity focused ultrasound and cryotherapy. I am a strong supporter of active surveillance and also work closely with oncologists, supporting them with high dose rate brachytherapy. Thus men can be assured that the advice given will tailor their treatment to the risks of the cancer and their own personal circumstances.

During my training I completed fellowships at Imperial College London Hospital NHS Trust and Royal Marsden Hospital NHS Foundation Trust and prior to starting in Southampton, worked as a Consultant at The Royal Marsden Hospital providing bladder, prostate, renal and testicular services.

I am active in cancer research and am leading prostate cancer research trials in Southampton. I have presented my own outcome data at national and international urology conferences including the recent European Robotic Urology Symposium where I was awarded a prize for the best presentation. During my time at The Royal Marsden I also performed the first UK series of robotic retroperitoneal lymph node dissections for post chemotherapy testicular cancer patients.

In August 2012 I gained experience of robotic radical cystectomy for bladder cancer at UCL and also visited Prof. Peter Wiklund at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm who was one of the pioneers of the procedure.

I am enthusiastic about teaching men about the confusing, often conflicting, ideas about prostate cancer testing and treatment. I seek to carefully risk assess men and try to avoid over diagnosis and over treatment.
