I qualified at St. Thomas's Hospital, part of the United Medical & Dental Schools of Guys & St. Thomas's Hospitals in London. After working on Surrey & Eastbourne, I completed my training on the North Central Thames Rotation in Urology, and Became the Senior Clinical Fellow to the Stone Unit at University College London Hospital and Admin SR / Lead Registrar for 15 months.
I was awarded the Markowicz Prize for being Registrar of the Year.
After 18 months as a Consultant at The Lister Hospital in Stevenage, where I set up a Comprehensive Stone Service, I was appointed as Consultant Urologist & Stone Surgeon at Whipps Cross Hospital, Part of Barts Health NHS Trust. I am the Director of Endourology and Stone Services for the whole trust.
I now perform all the major stone surgery for Barts health, a population of over 2.5 million people, including very complex endourological procedures, often directing a team of several surgeons. I perform over 50 PCNLs a year and over 200 flexible ureterorenoscopies and ureteroscopies.
In 2015 I set up the trust’s holmium enucleation of the prostate service (HoLEP), having previously performed greenlight prostatectomy and been part of the GOLIATH European study group that gained this procedure it’s NICE approval. I have now performed over 150 HoLEPs, including some very large prostates. In 2017 I took up UroLift and offers this now as well. I run the laser bladder clinic, where bladder cancer can be lasered under local anaesthetic since my appointment at Barts Health.
I continue to have a background in core urology and continues to offer treatment in this, alongside my stone and laser interest.
I have authored a book chapter, several papers including one in the Journal of Applied Mathematics. I have presented over 30 podium and poster presentations and have presented as an expert in numerous conferences. I am Honorary Senior Clinical Lecturer to Queen Mary University of London (QMUL) medical school, and lectures on basic science, and applied subjects such a stone disease. I am also pleased to be the Foundation Programme Director
