Mr Ben Eddy was appointed Consultant Urological Surgeon at Kent and Canterbury Hospital in June 2010, to set up Kent’s first Robotic Surgery programme for the surgical treatment of men with prostate cancer. He has a specialist interest in Robotic and minimally invasive surgery for the treatment of Urological cancers and has a strong interest in men’s health.

To date he has experience of over 1400 Robotic Prostate operations and is one of the UK’s most experienced Robotic Radical Prostatectomy Surgeons. He is a national trainer in robotic surgery, has set up an International Fellowship training programme and has achieved Urology Foundation national training centre status for his robotic surgical department. He has presented and published his results, is active in research and has been asked to speak at national and international meetings. He was in The Daily Mail top 10 prostate surgeons in the UK, voted for by his peers. He works very closely with his radiologists, pathologists and Oncologists to formulate the best treatment plan for his Urological Cancer patients.

Ben qualified from Guy and St Thomas' Medical School in 1996 having already achieved a first degree in Psychology in 1993. He did his registrar training in Urology in and around leading hospitals in the London region obtaining Fellowship of the Royal College of Surgeons in 2006. He completed an International Robotic Surgical Fellowship in Australia in 2008. He was one of the first UK registrars to do a robotic surgical fellowship in a major International teaching hospital.

He has been Cancer lead for East Kent and previously held Prostate Cancer lead for Kent and Medway Cancer Network. He has also set up the perineal prostate biopsy service and changed the whole prostate cancer diagnostic pathway.

Mr Eddy also treats general Urological conditions including benign prostatic enlargement (BPH) and PSA testing, andrology, erectile dysfunction, urological stone disease, urinary tract infections (UTI's), haematuria (blood in the urine) and inguinal and scrotal surgery including vasectomy. He specifically offers a quick outpatient based Vasectomy service under Local Anesthetic. He has no waiting lists for outpatient appointments, diagnostics or surgery.

He has a further interest in men with Urinary symptoms which are usually due to an age related enlargement of the prostate. He is able to offer one stop clinics and offers tailored treatments for an individualised approach to his patients.

Ben has been working at the Chaucer for over a decade and enjoys working there, he has a great working relationship with all the staff and is able to offer appointments for both private and NHS patients by the choose and book system. For private patients he is recognised by all the insurers and also sees self pay patients. Although a GP referral is always preferable he is happy to see Urological Patients without.
