About me

I am an experienced Consultant Urologist and surgeon specialising in modern diagnostic techniques and offer rapid and comprehensive assessment for all urological concerns supported by an excellent administrative and multi-disciplinary clinical team with access to some of the most modern operating theatres and equipment in the UK.
Specialising in the treatment of kidney stones and prostate problems including cancer assessment with MRI and benign enlargement I offer rapid assessment for symptoms or concerns for all urological cancers including blood in the urine and testicular swelling, urinary problems and men's sexual and reproductive health.
From the local area and graduating from St. Bartholomew's Hospital in 1996 and training throughout the South East of England and London, I have gained extensive experience in the management and treatment of all urological conditions. I completed a fellowship at Guy's and St Thomas' Hospital using the most advanced and comprehensive treatment methods for kidney stone disease and since have trained and taught widely in Europe including Paris, Madrid, Berlin and Milan in advanced endourological techniques.
I led one of the largest kidney stone treatment units in the UK and can offer all treatments not always available and am an expert in using laser treatment, shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL) and keyhole surgery (PCNL) for the treatment of kidney stones. I led a team of UK urologists advising NHS England on best practice in the treatment of patients requiring acute kidney stone care and am regularly on the faculty for the British Association of Urological Surgeons and Royal Society of Medicine for endourology skills and am an adviser for several industry leaders on product development and testing new to market products.
I led the introduction of MRI prostate diagnostic testing for prostate cancer combined with accurate and safe transperineal prostate biopsy techniques using MRI and Ultrasound fusion technology over 10 years ago.
I am also highly proficient in Holmium laser enucleation of the prostate (HoLEP), the most effective and durable treatment for prostate symptoms causing poor urine flow and bladder problems and to date all men in urinary retention suffering with catheters have had them successfully removed. I also tailor all treatments to individual patient requirements including rapid access to the procedure for patients on long waiting lists and treating both large and small prostates and also ejaculation preserving procedures with excellent results when required.
I have used and trained in various techniques for treating urinary symptoms and recognise the pros and cons of all recent devices and techniques including prostate artery embolisation (PAE), Greenlight, iTind, Urolift, Rezum and Aquablation.
My holmium laser (HoLEP) technique recognises why patients may consider less well established procedures and I have an ever growing experience of patients requiring HoLEP after TURP and these other newer treatments.
I also see men, often with their partner, struggling with fertility concerns but also men's health and sexual function. This includes the role of sperm quality and the impact on miscarriage. I use modern sperm assessments such as DNA fragmentation when required as a better measure of sperm quality than conventional semen analysis but also recognises the limits of such tests. I offer personalised and evidence based advice about other diagnostic tests and treatment options addressing both men and their partner's combined concerns to help couples understand what may be available at often very stressful times and often addresses or discovers health concerns that could impact men's health.
Finally, the ethos of providing personalised care is supported by my personal assistant and practice manager, Selina, who will assist patients through the complexities of modern healthcare challenges with utmost care and attention and is commonly highlighted in patient feedback.
