About me

I see patients with conditions affecting the kidneys, bladder, prostate and genitalia in men, women and children.

I offer subspecialist treatment for kidney stones including laser fragmentation, shock wave lithotripsy and percutaneous nephrolithotomy for larger, complex cases.

I have developed treatments for enlarged prostates, including HoLEP Holmium Laser Enucleation of the Prostate, proven to be more effective than traditional prostate operations.

I am also one of the North Essex Cancer Centre Surgeons, treating prostate cancer, bladder cancer, testicular cancer and kidney cancer. I perform complex renal surgery, including radical nephrectomy, partial nephrectomy and laparoscopic (keyhole) nephrectomy.

I see female patients with general urological problems as well as children with paediatric urological conditions requiring both medical and surgical management.

I have undergone specialist training in microsurgical vasectomy reversal.
