Mr Jefferson has been a consultant urological surgeon at UHCW since 2006, specialising in the treatment of prostate cancer including robot-assisted radical prostatectomy. He trained in medicine at Cambridge and Oxford Universities, representing Oxford as an oarsman. After house officer posts in Oxford and Poole, he taught anatomy at the University of Bristol. He went on to complete his Basic Surgical Training on the Bristol Royal Infirmary Rotation before being appointed to the South Western Deanery Higher Specialist Training Scheme in Urological Surgery. In 1999, he achieved the highest mark in Europe for the European Board of Urology In-service Examination.
After completing his training, he undertook a one year period of sub-specialist uro-oncology fellowship training in Bristol to gain a comprehensive experience of complex open and laparoscopic urological surgery. He was admitted to the Specialist Register for Urology in 2006.
As well as a number of international presentations and published articles investigating aspects of nocturia, prostate cancer and bladder cancer, Mr Jefferson has written book chapters on prostate and other urological cancers.
He has been chair of the West Midlands Expert Advisory Group for urological cancer since 2013.
Mr Jefferson began Da Vinci prostatectomy at UHCW in 2014 and has performed more than 200 cases personally, also contributing to more than 250 cases performed by his colleague, Donald MacDonald. The service uses the ICHOMS system of patient recorded outcome measures (PROMS) and reports to the BAUS Cancer Registry and the National Prostate Cancer Audit.
Mr Jefferson & Mr MacDonald have also pioneered the use of MRI/ultrasound fusion biopsy for the optimal detection of prostate cancer and receive referrals from across the West Midlands.
