Special Clinical Interests:

  • Investigation and management of urinary stone disease

  • Benign prostate disease including Holmium laser prostatectomy (HoLEP)

  • Laser surgery in Urology

PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE:

I graduated from Guy’s and St Thomas’ Hospitals in London in 2002 having been awarded a first class degree in Physiology in 1998. I completed my basic surgical training at the Norfolk and Norwich University and was subsequently awarded a specialist training rotation in the East of England region. The majority of my training has been in tertiary referral teaching hospitals (Addenbrooke’s Hospital, Cambridge and the Norfolk and Norwich), included a year as a Chief Resident and I have completed a stone surgery fellowship to Kathmandu, Nepal.

My main interests are the diagnosis and treatment of urinary stone disease, holmium laser enucleation of the prostate (HoLEP) and laparoscopic upper tract Urology. This includes both the use of advanced surgical techniques and minimally invasive intervention. I continue to have a keen interest in diagnostic general Urology and general urological surgery including prostate cancer diagnosis, and endoscopic (telescopic) surgery for diseases such as bladder cancer, and benign prostatic enlargement causing urinary difficulties.
