Professional background

Qualified - St Bartholomew's Hospital 1994. Fellowship Royal College of Surgeons of England (FRCS) 1998. PhD - The characterisation of human detrusor smooth muscle cell cultures - University College London - 2003. FRCS (Urol) 2006.   
I am a consultant urological surgeon with a broad training in urological reconstruction and a special interest in adolescent urology. The majority of my work involves reconstruction of the urinary tract in relation to congenital anomalies or previous surgery. As a unit we have strong links with Great Ormond Street Hospital and I spend one session per week  and run a transition clinic within their unit.

Research interests

  • Adolescent and Reconstructive Urology
