About me

I have been cancer lead at Stockport Macclesfield and Tameside hospitals for over 10 years and specialist in the treatment both surgical and non surgical for prostate and bladder cancer. The majority of my major operations are robotic assisted (keyhole) procedures for the treatment of both prostate and bladder cancer. I am currently the only surgeon in greater Manchester offering this type of surgery for bladder cancer and I work in a high volume centre for prostatectomy.
In addition to my cancer interest I also perform surgery and investigations for benign disease, in particular, the surgery to relieve urinary obstruction in men. The BMI Alexandra hospital have recently installed a bipolar set for the endoscopic (through the water pipe) removal of prostates and bladder tumours. This offers a safer alternative to patients undergoing these procedures.
I work in a group of urologists called Manchester Urology and together we cover all the different aspects of urological care and surgery.

Areas of interest

Prostate cancer; bladder cancer; benign conditions of the prostate; pelvic floor pain; the use of MRI scanning in the diagnosis of prostate cancer and raised PSA
