Mr Sooriakumaran, widely known by his initials PS, is a global leader in prostate cancer care, and one of the UK's best known robotic surgeons. He has the largest following of any UK urologist on LinkedIn and Twitter. PS works as a Consultant Urological Surgeon at University College London Hospital NHS Foundation Trust (UCLH), the UK's highest volume centre for surgery in prostate cancer.
PS also works privately at the Santis Clinic, the only UK centre where all surgeons were listed in the Daily Mail's "best urologists in Britain"; this listing was created by asking urologists across the UK who they would most want their nearest and dearest treated by, and it is thus a huge honour for PS to be the youngest surgeon to make the List. PS was cited as "an outstanding robotic surgeon... [who] cares deeply about getting good outcomes".
PS was one of London's Most Influential People in Healthcare in 2018 and topped the List in 2019 to become London's Most Influential Doctor. PS is the only urologist to make the List twice, and this is a testament to his patient outcomes and testimonials, and his globally penetrating research to improve prostate cancer surgery for patients worldwide. PS is a world-leading academic with research that has changed the practice of prostate cancer care, especially robotic surgery. Most of his >150 publications can be found at: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/?term=sooriakumaran+p .
PS performs far more robotic prostate cancer surgeries (robotic prostatectomies) than the average UK surgeon, and his outcomes are significantly better as a result of this experience and his exceptional training; PS trained under the global pioneers of robotic surgery at Cornell University in New York (Ivy League) and the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm. He also underwent a Senior Fellowship at the world-renowned Oxford University where he still holds a visiting appointment as a Senior Researcher. He is also an Associate Professor (Hon) at University College London, and has held Visiting Professorships at world-leading institutions across the globe.
PS is frequently invited to speak at and chair meetings in the USA, Continental Europe, Asia, and the Middle East, as a result of his world recognised expertise in prostate cancer care. He has received commendations and awards from some of the most prestigious urology and oncology societies in the world: European Association of Urology, British Association of Urological Surgeons, American Urologic Association, American Society of Clinical Oncology, and many more. Even the robotic surgical manufacturer Intutive Surgical has recognised PS as a European Leader in robotic surgery.
PS was not privately educated, was born in a developing country, and has had "real-world" experiences of poverty and family illness that help him to empathize with his patients. If you want a surgeon withours airs and graces who will talk to you as an equal and treat you as if you were a loved one, then PS is keen to see you. PS has patients from all over the world across the range of urology conditions but with a special focus on prostate cancer and prostate diseases.
PS is available for appointments on most weekdays (face to face, video, or telephone) via his secretary Simone Castle on firstname.lastname@example.org and 0203 389 5860. PS is a fledgling golfer and spends most weekends playing with his kids (and patients!).

Many thanks for your kind words. I am not one to 'oversell' - I prefer to undersell and over-deliver, and I never recommend surgery without careful consideration of side-effects and recovery. I am v pleased that you had a great outcome. Well done.

Mr. Prasanna Sooriakumaran (AKA: PS) is a highly skilled Robotic prostate Surgeon, specialising in the latest techniques in Nerve Sparing Prostatectomy. He is an excellent colleague and surgeon. I have had some very good feedbacks from the patients I referred to him for surgery. He is professional and friendly, with excellent bedside manners and I strongly recommend him for patients requiring robotic prostatectomy for prostate cancer.
PS is a kind and good doctor. He is a hard working diligent surgeon with attention to detail and continually tries to improve. He measures what he does and reacts to it. This is the hallmark of great surgery. He is an active academic. This is an unusual but very effective combination. Under PS patients are in very good hands.
PS is truly an excellent doctor and surgeon who cares about his patients. He is one of very few super specialists within the field of prostate cancer and patients who are referred to him can be confident that he will manage their care and concerns with the utmost experience, expertise and consideration . I would refer a colleague or family member to PS without hesitation.
PS, as he is affectionately known, is a great urologist who uses his formidable knowledge and expertise to help men with prostate cancer. He is widely respected by his colleagues, like me, researchers, nurses and his patients. He is an excellent surgeon and successfully treats men with prostate cancer while preserving bladder control and erections. PS is always at the forefront of what's new and uses innovative techniques to solve complex problems. I can strongly recommend him to any man worried that he might have prostate cancer or indeed does have it.
