About me

Julian graduated from Imperial College in 2002 before carrying out his basic surgical training at the Royal Surrey Hospital followed by 2 years of clinical research at Guy’s and St Thomas’ hospital in London. The focus of this research was prostate cancer, diagnostic prostate biopsies and robotic radical prostatectomy. In 2009 Julian published his MSc thesis “The evolving role of transperineal template prostate biopsies” before continuing his higher training in Wessex.

Julian’s principle interests are laparoscopic and open major abdominal and pelvic cancer surgery. He was appointed to University Hospital Southampton (UHS) in 2014 as a bladder and kidney cancer surgeon and has established himself, nationally, as a high volume cystectomist (bladder removal surgeon) and urological lead surgeon for pelvic exenteration (major pelvic clearance).

Julian, also, augments the laparoscopic and open nephrectomy service as well as dovetailing with the prostate team continuing with transperineal biopsies and prostate high dose rate brachytherapy. He continues to enjoy his benign work consisting of management of urinary tract infections, vasectomy/peno-scrotology and endoscopic surgery such as transurethral resection of prostate (TURP) to help male urinary symptoms.

Outside theatre, Julian remains highly patient focused. He has transformed the local Enhanced Recovery Programmes for patients after major urological surgery and has written the national guidelines for the British Association of Urological Surgeons.
