Profile

I enjoy the diversity of male and female urology. I have been performing radical prostatectomies for the past 19 years with excellent results in the patients detected early by PSA testing. Laparoscopic procedures for PUJ obstruction and small tumours of the kidney have made a major difference to early patient recovery. The biggest paradigm shift in my practice has been to utilise laparoscopic procedures to repair fascial support defects in the female pelvis.
