- Urological malignancy
I am a Consultant Urologist specializing in Uro-oncology (Urological cancers – prostate, bladder and kidneys). I am fellowship trained in Uro-oncology. I am a Robotic surgeon and one of the few Robotic surgeons in the UK performing robotic prostatectomies, cystectomies and partial nephrectomies. I am one of the highest volume robotic surgeons in the North of England and perform over 120 robotic procedures annually.
My work has been published in peer-reviewed journals and presented at regional, national and international meetings. I have reviewed articles for the British Journal of Urology International.
I am an investigator for national clinical trials e.g. BRAVO Trial and Add ASPIRIN Trial.
I returned to the UK on a British Journal of Urology International Scholarship in Uro-oncology from my native Trinidad and Tobago where I was a Consultant Urologist in the public and private sector. I spent 3 years training in Uro-oncology at St Bartholomew’s Hospital and University College London and came to Yorkshire to develop the robotic programme at Bradford Royal Infirmary. My entire NHS practice at the BRI now involves treating urological cancers using robotic surgery.
I conduct my private work at the Yorkshire Clinic and also offer a full range of diagnostic urological procedures (for cancer detection) and evaluation of urological symptoms in men and women. I carry out all urological cancer procedures robotically using the Da Vinci surgical robotic system. Robotic procedures offer advantages such as less bleeding, less pain and faster recovery from major surgery.
