About me

Born in Hampshire, I was educated at Queen Marys College before going onto study at the School of Medicine at The University of Manchester. Here I obtained a 1st Class Honours degree in Anatomy followed by my primary medical degree (MB.ChB.). After gaining my Fellowship of the Royal College of Surgeons I undertook a period of research at the Cancer Research UK Laboratories (Paterson Institute for Cancer Research/Christie Hospital) in Manchester. Here I undertook research in the treatment of bladder cancer, which led to the award of a Doctorate of Medicine (MD). I subsequently trained in General Urology in the North West of England and then undertook specialist training in Urological Cancer management at the Christie Hospital during which I obtained my Certificate of Specialist Training and my Specialist Urological Fellowship of The Royal College of Surgeons. In addition to this I spent a short period working at the Royal Surrey County Hospital learning Minimally Invasive Surgery and also attended the University Louis Pastuer, Strasburg, France , where I obtained a Diploma in Laparoscopic Surgery. I then took up my post as Consultant Urological Surgeon/Urologist at The Christie NHS FT and Manchester University NHS FT. I was awarded the position of Professor of Surgery within the prestigous Manchester Academic Health Sciences Centre in 2018.

I specialise in Penile surgery with some reconstructive work, having the largest penile practice in the north of England; my work also involves dealing with Sexual Dysfunction. I also manage Testis, Bladder, Kidney and Prostate problems including Cancer; This includes diagnostics and treatment. Additionally I am a member of the UKs largest complex pelvic cancer Team, dealing with difficult multidisciplinary cancer operations.

I am active in research, having published in journals and presented my research internationally.

I hold numerous positions in National/International Organisations which complement my interest in health service design & delivery and, auditing quality & safety.
