He started robotic surgery in 2004 and has been involved in over 250 successful robotic operations for prostate cancer. Prior to helping establish robotic urological surgery in the UK, he had performed over 500 open radical prostate cancer operations. He trained in the UK and did his postgraduate research in the USA. He has been instrumental in the development of our understanding of the nature of prostate disease and in developing treatment techniques, such as laser surgery treatment for enlarged prostates. He is the Trust’s lead in Prostate Cancer (East Berks) with a special interest in green light laser surgery, stone surgery and robotic surgery. He is also a consultant robotic surgeon to St Mary’s, Paddington, a UK trainer in robotic surgery and examiner for in-service examination for urology trainees.
