I am a consultant urological surgeon and andrologist (deals with male health, particularly relating to the problems with the penis and testes). 


My NHS practice is predominantly based at the world-renowned Christie NHS Foundation Trust, where I provide a high volume men’s health service. I also work at a number of other hospitals around the North West region.


I graduated from the University of Birmingham in 2005 and completed my surgical training in the West Midlands, Oxford and finally the North West. I went on to complete a full fellowship at Europe’s largest dedicated andrology unit and have also completed observerships at Weil Cornell (New York) in male infertility, and Leuven University Hospital (Belgium). I am one of only a few surgeons in the UK that has undergone accredited training in Miami, USA in the infrapubic approach for penile prothesis.


I am keenly involved in research, with active lab-based, translational and clinical projects across my field of expertise. I regularly publish and present internationally on subjects including penile cancer, erectile dysfunction, Peyronie’s disease, male infertility and other disorders of male sexual health.

I live in Manchester with my wife and two children. I am a keen cook, cyclist and walker.
