About me

Mr Ramesh Thurairaja is a consultant urological surgeon in bladder cancer, reconstructive and robotic surgery at Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust.

During his specialist urological training, Mr Thurairaja undertook his first fellowship at the world-renowned Inselspital in Bern, Switzerland. During this period, he was mentored by Professor Urs Studer in prostate and bladder cancer and reconstructive surgery particularly in creating 'Studer' orthotopic bladder substitution.

On completion of his specialist training, Mr Thurairaja then undertook his second fellowship in robotic surgery and pelvic oncology at Southmead Hospital, Bristol. On completion, Mr Thurairaja was initially appointed as a consultant urological surgeon at Kent & Canterbury Hospital where he successfully started and led the robotic bladder cancer service for East Kent for 20 months.

In April 2014, Mr Thurairaja was appointed and moved to Guy’s and St Thomas’ Hospital as a consultant urological surgeon to join this tertiary unit Bladder Cancer Service. Mr Thurairaja performs both open and robotic surgery using the Da Vinci system for bladder cancer and reconstructive surgery.
