    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.

    Having confidence in your surgeon is of paramount importance. I was treated as a person and not a procedure. I was reassured at all times and feel very lucky to have been treated by a wonderful man

    Excellent. I was introduced via an old classmate at school from 50 years ago. Surgery rapidly went from being my last choice of treatment to being my first choice. I felt informed and confident that I had made the right decision on treatment for me at my age, stage and with my lifestyle. I have not had much hospital treatment in my life, but I have never felt as calm, relaxed and confident in the outcome before a general anaesthetic as I did in the theatre before my robotic prostatectomy. That was despite the fact that after my initial diagnosis, but before my first consultation with Professor Eden, I had made arrangements to rapidly update my Will before surgery. Post surgery I had a little discomfort at times for a day or two, but never any pain. I only ever took paracetamol and ibuprofen as directed. I was walking comfortably within a few days and my fitness watch was recording over 10,000 steps a day a week after surgery. Its all good.

    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.
