Our Prostate Cancer Consultants

Meet Our Team

Our urologists Mr Tim Dudderidge, Mr Marc Laniado, Mr Raj Nigam and Mr Alan Doherty, along with our uro-radiologist Dr Clare Allen, have been pioneers in the areas of precision diagnostics and focal therapy for the last 20 years.

Based in the UK, they have led the development of focal therapy through clinical trials and treated hundreds of patients with this ground-breaking technology.

They along with industry expert Brian Lynch have created The Focal Therapy Clinic to widen the awareness of focal therapy as a viable treatment option to prostate cancer patients in the UK.
