Tim Dudderidge – Consultant Urologist MB ChB, MSc, FRCS (Urol)

Tim is a Consultant Urological Surgeon and lead of prostate cancer surgical trials at University Hospital, Southampton. Tim specialises in prostate cancer and is one of a handful of clinicians combining an interest in imaging and precision diagnostics with skills in both focal therapy and robotic surgery for prostate cancer.

He received his Doctorate of Medicine in 1998, and more recently, a Research Doctorate, both from the University of Bristol. He trained in London and spent time undertaking research at University College London, gaining an MSc degree. He went through urological training at all the leading cancer centres including Kings College Hospital, University College Hospital, Imperial Healthcare and the Royal Marsden Hospital where he also worked as a consultant. Tim was awarded a Royal College of Surgeons Uro-Oncology Fellowship at Imperial in 2009 and subsequently was the UK’s First Robotic Surgery Fellow at Royal Marsden Hospital.

Tim has research interests in urine based cancer diagnosis and surgical trials for prostate cancer. He has been principal investigator for all the prostate diagnosis and focal therapy trials in Southampton and collaborated with colleagues as a founder member of the UK focal therapy users group.

Tim’s clinical approach is one of careful assessment and explanation of prostate cancer treatment options. Enabling men to fully understand the difficult choices they must make is a challenge, but also, the key to delivering treatments without patient regret.

“HIFU is something people need to be aware of – I believe this treatment should be more widely available and more widely promoted. It wasn’t something suggested to me as a possibility by my urologist and I actually raised it myself. I would recommend HIFU and in fact have recommended it to others.”
