About me

I am able to help patients with urological issues and see patients face to face, speak on the phone or with video, and perform minor and complex surgery in a safe and environment including prostate cancer testing, PSA testing, prostate biopsy and robotic assisted radical prostatectomy (RARP). In addition, I can see, treat and advise on general urology conditions including BPH and benign prostate related symptoms.

Christian is a Consultant Urological Surgeon at King’s College Hospital and Guy's Hospital NHS Foundation Trusts in London. Private patients can be seen at The Prostate Centre in Wimpole Street and London Bridge Hospital at The Shard.

He also provides a comprehensive and advanced prostate diagnostic service with MRI and transperineal prostate biopsy. He also routinely performs REZUM and green light laser procedures for BPH and lower urinary tract symptoms as part of his specialist prostate service.
