    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.

My surgery is a success because of his skill and expertise and the fact that he is very methodical . I am cancer free and have full bladder function , that means the world to me. I can not thank Declan Cahill enough, he is a top Man in every sense of the word.

    Mr Cahill is the friendliest Consultant I have met. His advice and care was thorough and very efficient. Throughout the treatment I had no fear of what was to happen to me. I had developed full confidence in Mr Cahill. Two months later I feel almost fully recovered. I am most thankful to Mr Cahill and his team.

    The initial diagnosis came as a bit of a shock as I was not showing any symptoms. After being referred to Declan and the first consultation he allayed any fears I had and provided me with some very informative videos and Information, which proved to be invaluable and allayed some of the fears I had. After I was given some time to take in the information, of which there was a great deal, a detailed plan was put in place and a time line discussed. Declan has a down to earth and pragmatic approach and made me feel at ease straight away. He made a daunting situation easier to deal with.

    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.
