Mr Muhammad Shamim Khan was the first urological surgeon to establish the country’s robotic cystectomy programme in UK, a feat which not only gained him recognition amongst his peers, but that expedited and improved recovery for a wealth of future patients.
Mr Khan is a consultant and reader in urology at Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust and King’s College School of Medicine, London. His primary clinical interest is in the management of bladder cancer, where he has done collaborative clinical research on the diagnostic value of photodynamic diagnosis.
His work has seen him author over 150 peer-reviewed papers and his extensive research and pursuit for innovation in healthcare saw him awarded the OBE in 2007 for humanitarian work.
Today, Mr Khan is director of the BAUS (British Association of Urological Surgeons) office of education and to this extent, is heavily involved in teaching and training locally, regionally, nationally and internationally.
