Professor Abhay Rane, MS FRCS FRCS(Urol)

Professor Abhay Rane was appointed an Officer of the Order of the British Empire in the New Year 2014 Honours List for services to laparoscopic urology.

Professor Rane has been a Consultant Urological Surgeon at Surrey and Sussex NHS Trust for the last 13 years. He is appointed Adjunct Clinical Professor of Urology at the University of Southern California. He was one of the first laparoscopic urological surgeons in the United Kingdom. Instrumental in developing the technique of hand assisted laparoscopic nephrectomy in the UK from 2000, he was the first to described the usefulness of the technique in T3b (advanced) kidney cancers. More recently, he spearheaded the development of laparoendoscopic single site surgery (LESS) in urology as a pioneer and innovator. Having performed the first single port nephrectomy in May 2007 with colleagues in India, he went on to perform the first LESS nephrectomy in Europe in March 2008 at East Surrey Hospital, Redhill. He has been invited to share his experiences at a number of sessions at various cross specialty international meetings, including the American Urological Association and Society of American Gastrointestinal and Endoscopic Surgeons (2009 /10), where he was the only urologist to be invited faculty.

Over the last ten years, Professor Rane has mentored laparoscopic skills to other consultants. As a result, of his efforts at least 16 hospitals in the UK now have a local laparoscopic urology programme. His work on training in laparoscopy has been presented, published and cited extensively.

Professor Rane is an elected member of Council of the British Association of Urological Surgeons; thereby, he is Regional Specialist Professional Advisor, Royal College of Surgeons of England. Additionally, he is Regional Advisor, Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow, besides being Visiting Professor to a number of overseas institutions.

As Honorary Senior Lecturer, University of Edinburgh, he regularly supervises MSc students. A tutor on the MSc and FRCS (Urol) courses, he serves as an examiner of the Intercollegiate Membership of the Royal College of Surgeons and FRCS(Urol) exit examination for British urologists in training.

He has conducted a number of British, European and North American symposia/masterclasses in laparoscopic surgery as Course Director.

He was recently awarded citations two years in a row in the roll of honour as a top reviewer for the British Journal of Urology International.

He is current chairman of SLUG (Southern Laparoscopic Urology Group), a peer review group, to promote safe laparoscopic urological practice. Current Co-Chairman of the LESS and NOTES Working Group of the Endourological Society, he also is a member of the Awards Committee.
