About me

I am a Consultant Paediatric Urologist who is based in the West Midlands.  I have a large practice at Birmingham Children’s Hospital. 

Paediatric Urologists specialise in looking after problems with the waterworks and genitalia in young people.  I see patients who have problems with the foreskin and penis, hypospadias, hydroceles & hernias, problems with testicles (such as testicles not being in the right place, swellings and pain), reflux, hydronephrosis, blood in the urine (haematuria) and UTIs.  

As well as this general urology I have special expertise in looking after children with kidney stones, bladder problems (such as overactive bladder, daytime wetting, bed wetting), management of neuropathic bladder and reconstruction of the urinary tract (may be due to a condition children are born with such as Cloaca, or after surgery for cancer).

Aside From my clinical work I am actively involved in training and teaching.  I am responsible for running the Paediatric Surgical Training Scheme across West Midlands, Bristol and Cardiff.  I also organise Paediatric Urology training for Adult Urology Trainees.  I regularly teach on a number of courses that are recognised nationally.

Alongside my teaching interest I am involved in clinical research.  I am an author on 15 peer reviewed research papers, 5 invited articles, 3 book chapters and I have presented at regional, national and international meetings.
