About me

I am a consultant urological surgeon specialising in Uro-oncology and minimally invasive surgery. In the past 10 years I have focussed on prostate cancer and deliver all forms of treatment within a multi-disciplinary team. I personally undertake MRI-ultrasound fusion biopsy, robotic prostatectomy, HIFU, cryotherapy, HDR brachytherapy, Spaceoar insertion and BPH surgery. I also have a busy general urology workload.

I was an early adopter of pre-biopsy multiparametric MRI scans for diagnosis and was Principal Investigator in Southampton for the PROMIS study which established this as the key diagnostic tool for men with high PSA.
I am an expert in MRI guided targeted prostate biopsy (MRI-US fusion) and am one of a handful of surgeons offering both focal ablation and whole gland therapies including robotic prostatectomy, high intensity focused ultrasound and cryotherapy. I am a strong supporter of active surveillance and also work closely with oncologists, supporting them with high dose rate brachytherapy implants. Thus men can be assured that the advice given will tailor their treatment to the risks of the cancer and their own personal circumstances.

During my training I completed fellowships at Imperial College London Hospital NHS Trust and Royal Marsden Hospital NHS Foundation Trust and prior to starting in Southampton, worked as a Consultant at The Royal Marsden Hospital providing bladder, prostate, renal and testicular services.

I am active in cancer research and am leading prostate cancer research trials in Southampton. This included the INDEX study for focal ablation and studies of the ADX bladder assay a non invasive urine test for bladder cancer.

Current studies include the ATLANTA study for men with metastatic disease and the CHRONOS study, an RCT for whole gland vs focal ablation for focal prostate cancer.

I have presented my own outcome data at national and international urology conferences including European Robotic Urology Symposium where I was awarded a prize for the best presentation. During my time at The Royal Marsden I also performed the first UK series of robotic retroperitoneal lymph node dissections for post chemotherapy testicular cancer patients.

I am enthusiastic about teaching men about the confusing, often conflicting, ideas about prostate cancer testing and treatment. I seek to carefully risk assess men and try to avoid over diagnosis and over treatment.

Working as a founder member of The Focal Therapy Clinic I have helped to grow the awareness of focal therapy and have patients from all over the UK seeking treatment, delivered in partnership with their local urologists and oncologists.
