About me

I am a leading prostate cancer surgeon with one of the highest caseloads for robotic radical prostatectomy in the UK. My NHS practice is at UCLH, the largest robotic pelvic surgery centre in the UK. I pride myself on my very low complication rate. Since Jan 2018, none of my 500 prostatectomy patients have had major complications.

I continue to consult and treat patents, with appropriate social distancing and precautions, during the COVID-19 pandemic. I also conduct telephone and video consults where preferable.

I have a strong track record of leadership and research in prostate cancer. I lead two national trials designed to investigate ways of improving outcomes for men with prostate cancer. I completed the prestigious Royal College of Surgeons Fellowship in robotic surgery and was trained at Cambridge University where I worked for 5 years as a Lecturer.

I pioneer a technique called NeuroSAFE which is designed to increase the possibility of safe nerve sparing, and therefore sexual potency, after robotic radical prostatectomy. I am leading an NHS funded study testing how effective this technique is.

I am known for my work in scrutinising the way prostate cancer is diagnosed and treated and featured in front page UK broadsheet headlines and national television news for this work.

I maintain a very low complication rate and blood transfusion rate whilst doing over 4 times the number of robotic radical prostatectomies per year compared to the average UK prostate surgeon. I pride myself on maintaining strong relationships with the patients I treat and many are prepared to talk with people contemplating surgery under my care.

My patients are generally pleased with the care I provide and many are happy to speak to prospective patients.

My doctify profile inlcudes patient reviews.

I am an expert in robotic surgery. I employ the latest techniques to maximise the quality of life for patients undergoing radical prostatectomy. My approach regularly features in the press. I am an ambassador for Mens Health and my opinion is regularly featured in the press.
