Richard Hindley is a consultant urologist focused on patient care. He is dedicated to providing all patients with expert advice and the very highest quality of clinical care. He is able to treat the whole range of urological conditions using the latest proven techniques and the most up-to-date technology to provide timely and low-risk care.

He practices privately at HCA Princess Grace Hospital, London, alongside some of the leading consultants in the field. Outside of London, he also practices privately at BMI The Hampshire Clinic and the Candover Clinic in Basingstoke. He also has clinics to see NHS patients at Basingstoke Hospital. He receives patient referrals from all over the England and overseas.

Professor Hindley is a Visiting Professor at the University of Winchester and was awarded this position in 2017. He has made some impressive contributions to research into prostate cancer, and run clinical trials designed to further improve treatments and advances in patient care. He is dedicated to improving the diagnostic pathway for patients with prostate cancer and he furthermore researches some of the mechanisms that may cause the disease. Not only this, he has also performed over 500 transperineal prostate biopsies. Richard was heavily involved in the PROMIS trials which have shown considerable evidence of the benefits of having mpMRI scanning for diagnosing prostate cancer and allowing a far more accurate pathway for patients with prostate cancer.

He is also the director of the Greenlight Prostate Cancer Vaporisation training, a surgical technique which led to the NHS excellence committee awarding them for innovation. This technique is better for the patient, in terms of reduced healing time and even in high risk patients, the procedure can be carried out safely and effectively.

Most recently, Richard was the first surgeon to use the new Rezum treatment for BPH in 2017 and has now performed over 500 cases. This innovative new treatment is a minimally invasive procedure which uses steam therapy to reduce the enlarged prostate. For more information visit www.rezum.co.uk. Richard is offering this both privately and on the NHS.

On a more personal level, Professor Hindley is a fan of photography, alongside being a lover of tennis, cricket and cycling.

Mr Christopher Ogden is a consultant urologist and pioneer of robotic surgery in the UK. With around 1000 robotic procedures performed under his care, he is the leading UK robotic surgeon. To date, he currently has the longest and largest series of radical robotic prostatectomy operations performed by any surgeon in the UK, performing up to nine robotic prostate removals a week and around two hundred a year.

Mr Ogden's pioneering work began in 2004 when he put together the first team in the UK to be recognised by Da Vinci robotic surgery as trained to perform robotic prostatectomy. His team went on to be the first of their kind to perform the robotic prostatectomy in the UK independent health sector on one of his patients.

Mr. Ogden's distinguished career continued to evolve when he became the first UK surgeon to be invited on to the faculty of the European Robotic Urology Symposium. He later became the first UK urological surgeon to be invited on to the faculty of international experts at the World Robotic Symposium and was the first UK urologist to present a peer-reviewed paper at the national congress on one hundred consecutive robotic prostate operations with full oncological and functional outcomes.

In addition to all his other accolades, Mr Ogden is the first surgeon in the world to present a peer-reviewed paper on a comparison of Robotic prostatectomy and High intensity Focused Ultrasound for prostate cancer. He is a pioneer in his field and works tirelessly in his busy practice to give patients the best results.

Outside of his busy work, Mr Ogden’s interests include tennis, opera, theatre, music, rugby and farming.
