He is one of the most experienced surgeons in prostatectomy within the UK, having undertaken a total of more than 1,200 procedures. Mr Doherty was one of the first surgeons to carry out prostatectomy as a laparoscopic procedure. He has now completed 600 laparoscopic prostatectomies and is highly experienced in nerve-sparing techniques.
Mr Doherty's commitment to using minimally invasive techniques where appropriate includes all major specialties in urological surgery, including laparoscopic cystectomy (bladder removal) and laparoscopic nephrectomy (kidney removal), both of which are only performed by a small number of UK surgeons. He has published extensively on prostate cancer, including articles in the Lancet.
Mr Doherty was recently voted one of the UK's top ten prostate cancer surgeons in a poll of urologists for the Daily Mail.
Please note Mr Doherty is no longer seeing female patients, nor any male patients under the age of 30.
