I started as a urology consultant in 2019 following years of intensive training in Urology between Egypt and the UK.
My main areas of expertise are in prostate cancer diagnostics and treatment, stone disease and general urology. My sub-specialty interest is in Robotic Uro-oncology, such as robotic prostatectomy and robotic cystectomy. I am also experienced in treating patients with stone disease, benign prostatic enlargement and inguino-scrotal urological conditions.
I have performed over 400 robotic operations (prostatectomy and cystectomy) in the UK. I also introduced day-case robotic prostatectomy services in my NHS hospital, which has been received very well by my patients.
I received my basic training in Urology back in Egypt, where I finished my Masters degree. I finished my MD(Res) at UCL in 2015, and that was over the role of multiparametric MRI in the diagnosis of prostate cancer. I worked at big urology centres in the UK, such as UCLH, Bristol and Cambridge (where I completed my RCS fellowship in robotic prostatectomy).
I am currently the robotic lead at Southend hospital. I am also supervising junior doctors and a senior clinical fellow in robotic surgery.
I keep myself up to date with diagnostic and treatment techniques for various urological conditions, and more specifically urological cancer. This is through attending and sharing in national, as well as international, conferences and webinars. I strive to provide the best possible care to my patients.
