About me

Professor Shergill, Consultant Urologist in Wrexham, North Wales, and Urologist in Chester, Cheshire, is delighted to see patients and advise on General urological conditions as well as specialist conditions such as contemporary prostate cancer diagnosis (Mutli-parametric MP-MRI and Transperineal Template Mapping Biopsies), laser management of kidney stones, and minimally invasive treatments for benign prostate disorders (Urolift, Rezum and HOLEP) and all urological conditions.

Prof Shergill qualified from Charing Cross & Westminster Medical School in 1997. During his medical student training, he carried out 1 year full-time research leading to a 1st Class BSc (Honours) degree, from the University of London. The results were presented as posters at national and international meetings. He also managed to receive academic distinctions by obtaining The Medical Research Council (PROFC) Intercalated Course Award and The Nuffield Foundation Undergraduate Research Bursary.

Prof Shergill completed Basic Surgical Training on the respected Oxford Rotation, working at prestigious hospitals such as the Radcliffe Infirmary, Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre and The John Radcliffe Hospital, in Oxford (1998 to 2000).

Prof Shergill undertook a period of full-time research towards an MD thesis at the Institute of Urology, University of London between 2002 and 2004, prior to starting his Higher Urological Training. The research was into Predictive and Prognostic Markers in Prostate Cancer, in men undergoing Radical Prostatectomy surgery. The project design, and retrieval of archival radical prostatectomy specimens, required close liaison with urologists, pathologists and basic scientists, and highlighted Prof Shergill's ethos of multi-disciplinary team-working.

Prof Shergill commenced Higher Surgical Training in Urology in 2004, on the North Thames Deanery Rotation. During this time, he worked in several high-throughput specialist centres, gaining experience and training in 21st Century state-of-the art management of Urinary tract Stone disease, Laser Prostatectomy, Complex Uro-oncology disease, as well as the management of benign and malignant urological disease using Laparoscopic and Minimally Invasive surgery. During 2008, he successfully passed the final FRCS(Urol) examination, and then completed Higher Urology Training in April 2010. In 2013 Prof Shergill completed FEBU European examination.

Prof Shergill has introduced several new & innovative service developments (NICE guidance approved) to modernise urology practice in North Wales and Cheshire. These include the development of expertise in Complex Stone & new Minimally Invasive Prostate therapies. He was the first Urologist to perform new daycase prostate surgeries in NHS Wales such as Urolift and Rezum, and is currently national mentor for HOLEP laser surgery. As a result, Prof Shergill receives referrals from Wales & North West England. He has published 94 peer-reviewed papers, edited 6 teaching textbooks & written 12 book chapters, with numerous national/international presentations. Prof Shergill is Clinical Director of new North Wales Clinical Research Centre, with an active urological research programme, including Principal Investigator of several multi-centre UK trials.
