    Professor Eden's team, in my personal opinion; are some of the finest professionals I have had the pleasure to be involved with! There is nothing regarding the service that I could criticize. My initial consultation with Professor Eden made me feel, and more importantly the Wife; at ease with the disease. I had my prostate removed last September, within three days of returning home I was back at my desk; albeit 3hrs per day for the first week. I was completely dry within three weeks of having the catheter removed. I am 59 years old and relatively fit. Most men worry about potency post op, I am no exception! My experience to date is that I can manage an erection with a 25mg Sildenafil, so life is good. Professor Eden has taken away all the anxiety of prostate cancer for me and my Family, there is truly nothing to be afraid of. I found it to be no big deal, sometimes we men overthink our health problems? I have no medical qualifications but the good sense to know Cancer wont go away, it needs swift action. I have an interesting story to conclude, of a friends Father in Law, who could not pee for a year and never sought medical advice, by the time he saw a Urologist his PSA was off the scale and is now deceased. We are a product of our choices choose Christopher Eden! Respectfully and gratefully yours Christopher G.

    When you have prostate cancer, it is sometimes difficult to choose the right consultant. I met with 4 consultants including Professor Christopher Eden before arriving at a decision. I am pleased to say that I feel I made the correct choice for me by choosing Professor Eden to treat me. In my first meeting with him, he reviewed my scans and biopsy and was very clear about the best treatment for me. I felt reassured by his calm manner and his clear explanations. I felt he was different from other consultants because he has a pathologist with him examining the tissue while surgery is being carried out. Therefore he was clear about the treatment and was able to perform nerve sparing surgery on me when the other consultants I had spoken to had advised they would not attempt this. I consider Professor Eden to be one of the best consultants for prostate treatment in the world. It has now been over two years since my surgery and thankfully, I appear to be free from cancer.

    I have known Professor Eden for 30 years, the last 20 years as a consultant colleague. He pioneered keyhole surgery techniques in urology in the UK and is the leading prostate cancer surgeon in the UK with an international reputation. He is a superb technical surgeon and innovated many of the now standard techniques in prostate cancer surgery. If I had prostate cancer Chris is the man I would ask to operate on me and indeed I have recommended him on many occasions to family and friends.

    Professor Eden is one of the world's best prostate cancer surgeons. He is an unusually gifted technical surgeon who also possesses exceptional communication skills. His patients quite rightly adore him and he goes above and beyond to look after them. Of all the prostate cancer surgeons in the UK, he is the one I would send my nearest and dearest to.

    Chris Eden is one of the most experienced prostate cancer surgeons in the UK having specialised in this area for many years and I have no reservations recommending him to patients. His personal experience in this field is almost without rival and he always continues to develop and improve his surgical skills and techniques for the benefit of patients. I have confidence referring patients to him to achieve the best outcomes from their prostate cancer surgery. He also backs this up with detailed personal information on his own surgical experience and outcomes looking after thousands of patients over a long career of dedicated practice. In addition, his practice is one of the most modern, responsive and technically advanced that I have experienced and his administrative staff are extremely efficient.
