We apologise that The Focal Therapy Clinic’s site was experiencing some technical difficulties at the start of the week – if any visitors filled out a contact form and have not heard back from us please do get in touch again and we will contact you very shortly.
Tim Dudderidge, Marc Laniado, Raj Nigam and Alan Doherty are four of the leading practitioners of focal therapy in the world. 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.
Tim is a urological consultant at University Hospital Southampton, where he specialises in prostate and bladder cancer. He 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.
Marc is the prostate cancer lead at Wexham Park Hospital, Berkshire. He has been a consultant since 2002, working with patients in both Windsor and Harley Street. Marc specialises in MRI to identify areas of suspicion and is a pioneer in the use of targeted biopsy techniques. Marc is a specialist in the use of focal therapy and nerve sparing robotic surgery.
Raj is a consultant urological surgeon based at the Royal Surrey County Hospital in Guildford. He was appointed in 2000, and has a range of experience in general urology, andrology and urological oncology practice in NHS hospitals.
Alan completed his undergraduate training at The Middlesex Hospital before undergoing his surgical training at the Royal Marsden and Charing Cross Hospitals in London. Mr Doherty also studied at The Institute of Urology before taking up his position as a consultant urologist at Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham, the largest urological cancer centre in the West Midlands, in 2001.
Brian has been involved in the world of prostate cancer diagnosis and focal therapy for over 10 years. He is an advocate both for the use of MRI and targeted biopsies for the precise diagnosis of prostate cancer and for the use of focal therapy wherever appropriate.
As a group of consultants we are passionate about prostate cancer sufferers knowing about all of their treatment options.
