Milan graduated in medicine at University College London Medical School in 2004 and spent the early years of his medical professional training in and around London. He undertook his higher surgical training in urology in the North West Training Deanery, incorporating the major teaching hospitals of Greater Manchester including Salford Royal Hospital and The Christie, the largest cancer hospital in Europe.
Milan says: "Here I worked with national and world leaders in urology and cancer surgery and developed an early interest in minimally invasive cancer surgery and worked with the Da Vinci robotic system at The Christie Hospital." He has given international presentations in both benign conditions and cancer treatment.
During his training, Milan developed wider skills including a formal university course in medical education and leadership in medicine at the University of Manchester Business School.
Milan is now leading the renal cancer service at East Kent Hospitals and is one of a few robotic surgeons in Kent, performing complex procedures such as partial nephrectomy. Keen on promoting new technology he is now a Clinical Lead helping with the introduction of a pioneering IT delivered health care service in the Trust.

The removal of my kidney
I had a robotic benign nephrectomy in April carried out by Mr M Thomas, I could not have wished for better treatment during my stay in Hospital. The cause of the kidney failure was a kidney stone
Mr Thomas spoke to me before the operation which made me feel at ease, he also came to see me after the operation to say that all was well. I spent two nights in The I.C.Unit which I felt was the N.H.S. at its best, I was looked after by such a dedicated team, thank you all
From the diagnosis of the tumour in my left kidney on 28th December 2017 to the operation on 24th Jan 2018, the care that I have received has been incredible! I had a very large tumour (13cm) so I had a radical open nephrectomy on the morning of 24th Jan. The anaesthetist and the surgeon came to see me beforehand and made me feel very relaxed about the operation. It was amazing, there were no complications during surgery and I was drinking and eating the same day. It is now a couple of weeks since the operation and I have just walked a mile and feel pretty good. I just have a slightly dull ache at times but the scar is healing well (26cm long) and shows the surgeon's skill! Thank-you!
