About me

Ben has driven successful business plans to introduce a fixed site lithotripter in Oxford (2009) and more recently (2012) a 100W laser for stone surgery and laser prostate surgery (HOLEP). A further successful business plan will allow expansion of the lithotripsy service to 5 full days a week. Ben drove the successful application to host international EBU fellowships in Oxford.

Ben’s research interest is in kidney stone disease and he has collaborations with genetics, mathematical modelling, biomedical engineering, public health and epidemiology departments in Oxford ( Work from his research is presented regularly at international meetings and published in peer reviewed journals. He is invited regularly to give presentations at national and international meetings.

Ben also has an research interest in surgical technology and digital healthcare. He is working with industry partners in IT (Oneview), technology and simulation (McLaren Applied Technology) and 3D printing (3D lifeprints) to develop better technology and IT solutions for the future.

Ben has benefited from international experience with recognised leaders in the field including Prof Glenn Preminger at Duke University, North Carolina, USA and Prof Olivier Traxer, Hôpital Tenon, Paris.
