PRESENT APPOINTMENTLead Consultant Urologist & Robotic Surgeon01.01.1999 -to present time
Dept of Urology, Dorset County Hospital Foundation Trust, Dorchester, Dorset
I did an oncology fellowship at Stanford University, California. It was mainly focussed at prostate and renal cancer management. I had the opportunity to work with world-renowned authorities in Uro-oncology like Professor Thomas Stamey, Professor Mc Neil and Professor Linda Shortliffe.
I had wide experience in Robotic radical prostatectomy for prostate cancer, laparoscopic nephrectomies, open radical nephrectomies and nephro-ureterectomies for renal and transitional cell cancer.
I am the Lead Robotic surgeon for West Dorset. My work load is around 80-90 Robotically Assisted Radical prostatectomies per year.I regularly audit and submit my RARP cases to BAUS database.
I have devised a novel technique of RARP which I have presented at the European Robotic Surgery meeting in Milan, ERUS 2016. A new video after 310 RARP cases with my novel technique has been submitted for presentation at the March 2020 EAU meeting in Barcelona.
I am offering salvage High Intensity focused Ultrasound for post radiotherapy failure prostate cancer patients at the Winterbourne Hospital in Dorchester.
I have wide experience in laparoscopic Urological surgery. I routinely perform laparoscopic nephrectomies, lapraroscopicpyeloplasties, laparoscopic radical prostatectomies and exploratory laparoscopies.
I have had my training for Laparoscopic Radical Prostatectomies at Strasburg and Leipzig with Professor Stolzenberg.
TRANSPERINEAL TEMPLATE BIOPSIES
I have developed Transperineal Template Biopsy service for Dorset. I have introduced a new technique for prostate mapping. The abstract has been sent to the British Journal of Urology for publication.
