    About

    I am a Consultant Urological Surgeon and visiting Professor at several Universities including Bristol. I am a highly experienced Prostate Surgeon and Andrologist having trained in London, Bristol and Cambridge with Postgraduate fellowships at Johns Hopkins, USA and Lund, Sweden.

    I have been a national pioneer in minimally invasive techniques for the treatment of benign prostate disease (BPH) as an alternative to TURP. These techniques include the Urolift procedure, REZUM (steam treatment of the prostate) and Green Light Laser. All these techniques are offered by me, as well as traditional TURP if tablet therapy has failed or cannot be tolerated by the patient. I am a pioneer in advanced prostate diagnostic techniques to rule out cancer prior to treatment of prostate diseases and work with oncologists to optimise treatment outcomes (eg with insertion of rectal spacers and markers to help targeted treatments)

    I am also a leader in the treatment of Erectile Dysfunction. If treatment with tablets or medical devices hasn’t proved successful, I can offer restorative surgery using state-of-the-art penile prosthetic devices and work as part of a very experienced team in this area . I also treat Peyronie’s disease, offering medical treatments in its early phases, and surgical correction if this fails.

    I have 25 years of experience in the restoration of fertility using microsurgical Reversal of Vasectomy and has some of the best results nationally.  I also offer male infertility procedures such as testicular extraction of sperm in order to optimize assisted conception techniques.

    I believe treatment should be tailored to patients’ lifestyles and based on a combination of scientific evidence and individual preferences. my strong background in research allows this unique approach.
