I qualified from Imperial College London in 2008 and subsequently excelled through my urology specialist training in London and the South East obtaining several awards throughout this period. This has involved working in centres with international reputations in benign prostatic disease as well as prostate cancer. I also spent 2 years at the Frimley Benign Prostate Clinical Research Centre, learning novel techniques for the treatment of bladder outflow obstruction including bipolar TURP, laser prostatectomy (Greenlight and HOLEP) and Urolift.
I have a specialist interest in benign prostatic disease and also the diagnosis of prostate cancer, offering local anaesthetic transperineal template or targeted MRI fusion prostate biopsies. I have been able to develop minimally invasive approaches to both the investigation and management of urological conditions. In addition, working with patients to create a personalised management plan forms the mainstay of my clinical practice.
Recently I have innovated a novel prostate biopsy technique at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital to reduce the time taken for men to be diagnosed with prostate cancer and therefore treated. In this vein, keeping up-to-date with new techniques and evidence based developments in practice ensures that patients that I treat are offered excellent care. This includes regular monitoring of my surgical outcomes. My work in the field of prostate cancer diagnostics and treatment has been presented at international conferences.
A large part of my practice is dedicated to general urology which encompasses the investigation and management of female urinary symptoms (including urinary tract infections), cancer of the urinary tract (prostate, bladder and testicle), urinary tract stone disease and conditions of the penis and scrotum.
I am married to Sophie who is a local Paediatric Nurse Practitioner and have 3 young sons who keep me busy! I have been fascinated with flying since childhood and I hope to start training for my pilots licence when time allows.
