I have recently joined the urology department at the Brighton and Sussex NHS Trust as Consultant Urologist, with specialist interest in Urinary Upper
Tract Oncology, Stone Diseases, Minimal Invasive Prostate Surgery, Andrology and Laparoscopy.
I have completed basic surgical training in the Northeast of England. Having gained broad experience in general surgery and urology, I then worked as a research fellow at the Barts and London University Hospitals working on the
Reduction by Dutasteride of Prostate Cancer Events (REDUCE) trial.
Joined the Eastern deanery for higher surgical training programme in urology and received comprehensive training in diagnostic and therapeutic general urology, moreover I spent the last two years gaining sub-specialist training in endourology, laparoscopic kidney surgery and stone disease at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospitals.
Applying evidence-based medicine in practice has inspired me to instigate my research project in the management of testicular tumours and awarded
the degree of MSc. from Teesside University. Additionally I have several publications and I have actively participated in national and international
meetings. This has improved my insight to this specialty and helped me improve the quality of care I deliver to my patients.
I feel that my inquisitive nature and communication particularly listening and utilisation of transferable skills would enable me to successfully and safely treat my patients in the future and to be an advocate of high quality care, training issues and research projects.
I am very keen to establish strong ties with my colleagues in the primary care and provide high quality care and advice in timely manner by establishing electronic clinics and urology advice surgeries for quicker urology input as well as extending clinical input and expertise for patients in the primary care setup as required
