    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.

    Prostate Cancer Nerve Sparing Prostatectomy
    My recovery from a radical prostatectomy has been more rapid than I expected and this can only be due to the fact that Declan is an outstanding surgeon. What has really impressed me is that he totally "owns" the Consultant - Patient relationship. Throughout my treatment, he has always been there for me. He has consistently demonstrated a genuine interest in me and my progress which has been both reassuring and motivating for me. He has been absolutely committed to providing the best possible outcome for me, whatever it takes and has constantly reviewed the options available as treatment has progressed. Despite the fact that he is inevitably busy, he has followed up promptly and diligently whilst retaining the knowledge about me and my condition and proactively engaging with me to check how I am doing. He also has a great sense of humour and an outstanding team supporting him. I continue to be hugely impressed by his all-round skill and attentiveness and cannot recommend him highly enough.

    The level of web based information on Mr Cahill and his team , the step by step videos , the post operative statistics and the easy access to a high level of information filled me with confidence in Mr Cahill's experience right from the outset. I found his calm , reassuring and affable manner particularly reassuring, at a time when I was worried about making decisions on treatment. His explanations of the procedures both pre and post operative enabled me to make decisions about the choice of approach.

    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.
