Professional Profile

Neil, originally from Hereford qualified from the Unversity of Wales College of Medicine in 1989. He remained in South Wales for his basic surgical and urology training, but subsequently developed his subspecialist interest in the management of urological malignancy following a fellowship at the Flinders University, Adelaide. On his return from Australia, he was appointed as a Consultant Urological Surgeon in Swansea where he continues to practise. He has continued to develop his expertise and was awarded one of the first ‘British Urological Foundation’ travelling fellowships, which enabled him to train at the Cleveland Clinic in Ohio. This centre is world renowned for its innovative treatment for urological malignancy and whilst there Neil was trained in all aspects of laparoscopic (keyhole) urological cancer surgery under the supervision of Dr Indibir Gill. He was able to bring these techniques back to Wales where he was the first local surgeon to subspecialise in these procedures. He provides a minimally invasive service to the patients of South West Wales including laparoscopic nephrectomy, partial nephrectomy, pyeloplasty. He remains the only Urologist able to perform laparoscopic radical prostatectomy in South Wales. In co-operation with colleagues from Cardiff and Newport he is developing the first robotically assisted service in Wales with support from the WAG health technology fund.

In addition to his subspecialist work Neil continues to provide a comprehensive general urological service to his patients, which includes diagnostics, treatment of non-malignant urological conditions, basic paediatric urology and regularly provides emergency cover for the management of urological trauma.
