    About

    After competing his higher surgical training at Guy's Hospital, London and urological research at King's College Hospital Rick Popert was appointed consultant in 1996. His main area of interest and where his skills excell are in the evaluation and surgical treatmetn of benign and malignant prostatic disease. 

    His surgical expertise lie in Robotic radical Prostatectomy, Dynamic Prostate Brachytherapy, for which he has the UK's largest experience of single visit dynamic intra-operative prostate brachytherapy and has carried out over 800 of these cases since 2004; Precision Prostate Diagnosis with MRI Fusion Biopsies and Holmium Laser Prostatectomy for which he has carried out over 800 holmium laser enucleations with reduced bleeding and length of stay in patients with prostate volumes larger than 100 cc compared with standard transurethral prostatectomy (TURP). 

    His surgical tecnhique is now a robotic assisted approach as opposed to the more conventional open radical prostatectomy carrying out over 600 robotic prostatectomies since 2006; For benign prostatic disease, he has one of the UK's largest experience of holmium laser prostatectomy (HoLEP).

    He is an expert in Precision Prostate Diagnostics and has developed a rapid access prostate MRI assessment service together with with a unique systematic transperineal biopsy approach which provides accurate tumour localisation; this is an approach that has been further enhanced by the technique of MRI fusion targeted biopsy of the prostate which he introduced in March 2012. 

    In 2014 he introduced a prostate arterial embolisation service. This is an alternative to the surgical management of benign prostatic disease avoiding the complications of urinary incontinence, erectile and ejaculatory dysfunction.

    It is important that HCA is transparent about our relationship with those doctors who provide us with clinical guidance on delivering the best possible care to patients and operating our hospitals safely and efficiently. We set out here some of the ways in which we work together and the amount we pay this doctor for such services.
