Dan Wood is a Consultant Urologist in Adolescent and Reconstructive Surgery at the University College Hospitals, London. After gaining a sound background in general urological practice, he developed an interest in reconstructive urology. He has worked in the fields of female and pelvic reconstruction, urethroplasty and artificial urinary sphincters, paediatric urology and surgery for congenital malformations, as well as adolescent urology. He currently performs a wide range of procedures in urological reconstruction and adolescent urology.
Dan was awarded a PhD thesis for his work on ‘The Characterisation of Human Detrusor Smooth Muscle Cell Cultures’. He continues to research detrusor physiology. In 2001 he was awarded a travel fellowship allowing him to visit Harvard University and gain an insight into tissue culture for tissue engineering. He holds a grant with the St. Peter’s Trust looking at long term outcomes of paediatric surgery. He has developed an interest in patients who have suffered urinary tract damage as result of ketamine misuse and is a co-investigator on a collaborative research grant with University of Surrey relating to anticholinergic medication.
He has recently chaired the International Consultation on Urological Disease looking at Congenital Anomalies in Adolescence.
