Following his surgical training in the Midlands, Matt undertook a 2 year Urology MD research degree at The Bristol Royal Infirmary. He was then fortunate to commence his Specialist Urology Training in London at The Royal Marsden Hospital and Charing Cross Hospital, and then transferred to the South West with his family, and completed his urological training in Cheltenham and Bristol. During this period he was able to gain significant experience in laparoscopic surgery, laser stone surgery, paediatric urology, as well the management of male and female lower urinary tract problems.
Matt has been a practising consultant Urologist at Royal Cornwall Hospital since 2012, and The Duchy Hospital since 2013.
He has always been interested in minimally invasive treatments for urology patients, and he was the first surgeon to offer the Urolift procedure in Cornwall. This fantastic daycase prostate procedure approved by NICE is a new alternative to medication and the traditional ‘TURP’ operation, takes around 10-15 minutes to perform under sedation / local anaesthetic. Since 2017, Matt has performed over 80 of these successful procedures. As this has revolutionised the approach to treating men with prostate-related symptoms he has drawn significant media attention, including featuring on BBC Spotlight news, BBC Radio Cornwall, and interviewed for Cornwall Living Magazine.
