He is a pelvic cancer specialist, providing surgical services for complex pelvic cancer. He specialises in Robotic surgery for the treatment of prostate and bladder cancer. Matthew introduced narrow band imaging for the early detection and management of superficial bladder cancer and introduced the robotic cystectomy programme enabling safer surgery with a shorter length of stay and lower complication rate at both St George's and the Royal Surrey Hospitals.

Urological Pelvic Cancer

Prostate cancer is the leading cancer in the UK with 47,000 men receiving the diagnosis each year and over 11,000 men dying from the disease. Earlier diagnosis and treatment can lead to cure and prolonged life expectancy.

Bladder cancer affects about 10,000 Britons per year but has a high potential for eradication if caught at an early stage. If diagnosed with invasive cancer, cure can also be achieved in over half of patients but aggressive treatments may need to be considered. 

Robotic Surgery

Matthew has over 10 years of experience with the Da Vinci robot with thousands of operations in his portfolio. His vast experience and continuing desire to improve has lead to greater outcomes for his patients. 

The Urology department at the Royal Surrey Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is a recognised ERUS (European Robotic Urology Society) Training centre and with Matthew's mentorship and education, has produced Consultant Robotic Surgeons for cities as diverse as Brisbane, Luxembourg, Chicago, Guildford and Middlesbrough.
