It is now the largest, most prestigious Andrology department in the world, with over 50 international observorships per year and the highest number of tertiary referrals in the UK.

His practice is entirely confined to Andrology, with his main interests being penile reconstruction, Peyronie’s Disease, erectile dysfunction with prosthetic Urology and male infertility.

He has held many prestigious positions, the most notable being Chairman of the BAUS section of Andrology, President of the British Society of Sexual Medicine and President of the European Society for Sexual Medicine (ESSM). He is currently Chairman of The European Society of Genitourethral Reconstructive Surgeons, President of the Sexual Advice Association charity and a specialist advisor to NICE.

He founded the national penile cancer centre at UCLH, the international training centre for penile prostheses insertion and the major phallic reconstruction unit. It is also the biggest priapism centre in the UK.

He has written over 250 peer-reviewed publications, 60 chapters and books, and has delivered 500 international presentations and 500 invited lectures.

He was awarded the Brantley Scott medal in 2016 for recognition of his international contribution to Prosthetic Urology and the British Society For Sexual Medicine Career Award in 2017.
