About me

Prashant Patel qualified in 1993 from India and then trained to qualify as a General Surgeon with a special interest in pelvic surgery.

He travelled to Perth (2010), Australia to complete a fellowship in urological cancer surgery where he had exposure to laparoscopic and robotic surgery.

He is also the Urology Governance lead at UCLH and currently awarded a scholarship towards an executive health MBA at UCL.

His clinical interests are in pelvic cancers (bladder and prostate) and RPLND for metastatic testicular cancer. He conducts cancer surgery ranging from routine straightforward cases to the highly complex and technically demanding operations. He mostly performs multi-speciality complex operations of the genito-urinary tract involving other specialities viz.
