“From my first appointment with Declan Cahill, I felt assured that I was in the best hands. He has an easy style that relaxes you in what is a very stressful time. He explains everything in great detail, which brings confidence to you. I opted for Robotic surgery with Declan ,and everything went smoothly. Declan called my partner as soon as the operation was complete. He has looked after me with incredible care, and I have always felt supported, and had a laugh or two along the way with him. I would recommend Declan to anyone who is facing prostrate cancer, he always goes the extra mile for you a top man. “

    About

    www.declancahill.co.uk

    Mr Declan Cahill is a Consultant Urological Surgeon. In 1993, he qualified at Charing Cross and Westminster Medical School (now Imperial College) with distinction.

    Much of his extensive medical career has been spent training in London. Owing to his medical excellence, he was awarded the Hallett Prize Gold Medal for General Surgery and then the Keith Yates Gold Medal for Urology. After completing his urology training in London, he undertook fellowship training at the Institut Mutualiste Montsouris in Paris, the world-leading institution at the time, where his specialism was minimally invasive prostate surgery.

    Mr Cahill has an excellent reputation in general urological diagnostics and treatment as well as his own specialist practice in prostate cancer. His specialist areas of interest include prostate cancer, robotic-assisted radical prostatectomy, general urinary diagnostics and management including urinary infection, benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), haematuria, and general conditions of the scrotum and penis.

    For robotic radical prostatectomy his results are equivalent to the best published results in the world for cancer margins, continence and potency. He operates on a very high volume of patients with prostate cancer each year, performing between three and five robotic radical prostatectomies per week.

    A highly professional, very approachable and likeable man at the very top of his profession. He combines gentleness with authority, empathy with directness, thorough explanation of medical/surgical processes with reassurance. He always makes you feel that he is in calm control, something that feels so important when one faces life-affecting decisions. I am very happy with having chosen him as my surgeon for my radical Prostatectomy earlier this summer... Thank you Declan.

    from the start Mr. Cahill’s assured empathetic professional manner served to put my mind at ease that I am entrusting my medical procedure in the hands of a top practitioner. This was further enhanced by clear and useful communication from MR. Cahill’s team through vimeo clips and written materials . I felt fully informed about the procedure itself and the post operative recovery aspects and time lines.

    My experience was mainly during the operation, so I was asleep most of the time. The discussion before the operation was quick but thorough and professional, as was the follow up clinic two months after the procedure. The result has been everything I hoped for.

    In addition to my having every confidence that he would perform the operation to the highest standard possible, he took the trouble to personally phone my wife to advise that it had gone well, ask if she had any questions etc. He could well have asked a junior staff member to do so, but his professionalism saw him doing so himself. By its very nature, I will never need to have the operation again, but if I did, I would not hesitate to ask Mr Cahill to do it! What further accolade can I bestow?

    Dr Cahill was very straightforward with clear and matter of fact at every stage, from initial consultation to pre and post op (prostatectomy) follow-ups. He showed up on a Zoom meeting with the oncology nurse which was unexpected and very welcome, called me the day prior to the surgery to see if I had any last minute questions or needed any reassurance. After the operation, which went very well, he provided his personal email address so that i could inform him of progress and ask any question if needed. Very positive and recommended.

    The build up of several weeks of test prior to finally being diagnosed with prostate cancer, and the several weeks following diagnosis, were filled with anxiety. Meeting Mr Cahill replaced the uncertainty with some much needed reassurance. Mr Cahill has not only a lot of experience: he also knows how to explain things clearly, with a matter-of-fact very reassuring confidence. The moment I took the decision to be his patient I felt immediately reassured. The operation went well, and in spite of some minor complications, I have recovered quite quickly. His follow-ups were also faultless: I felt completely safe in the hands of Mr. Cahill and his excellent team. I would not hesitate recommending him.

    From my very first consultation through all stages of diagnosis, including biopsy and final decision to opt for a radical prostatectomy, Declan Cahill has been straightforward and informative but always exhibiting concern and empathy for the patient. Although a surgeon, Declan initially recommended Active Surveillance, but was sufficiently alert to developments in my prostate cancer to recommend timely treatment. My confidence in his judgement and expertise made it quite a straightforward decision to opt for a radical prostatectomy, which would appear to have been a sound decision with a very positive outlook. I would definitely recommend Mr Cahill to others who need referral due to raised PSA levels.

    Declan is one of the finest robotic prostate cancer surgeons I know. And given that I've worked and trained with the world's best, that's saying something! He has great results, is hugely invested in his patients, and exemplifies what being a great doctor and surgeon are. He is definitely one of the surgeons I look up to in order to improve my own performance. I can recommend him to any patient without hesitation.

    Declan is a trusted colleague and very easy to deal with - I have referred patients to him for Urology opinions when required and they have always been well looked after. Very happy to recommend.
