In 1997, he was awarded the Allinson Foundation Research Fellowship from the Royal College of Surgeons and undertook a Master’s degree at the Nuffield Dept of Surgery in Oxford. Mr Haldar then went on to complete his higher surgical urology training in Oxford following which he undertook further visiting fellowships to the Cleveland Clinic, Ohio and Nantes, France to develop his specialist interest in laparoscopic urology.
In 2005, he was appointed as Clinical Lead in laparoscopic urology to Buckinghamshire NHS Trust. As one of the nominated pelvic cancer surgeons for the Thames Valley Cancer Network he carries out nerve-sparing laparoscopic radical prostatectomy for prostate cancer and radical cystectomy with bladder reconstruction for bladder cancer with excellent continence rates in both procedures.
He works closely within a multidisciplinary team that in addition to surgery also offers radical radiotherapy, brachytherapy, chemotherapy and active surveillance.
In 2008 Mr Haldar became one of the first surgeons in the UK to perform single incision transperitoneal and extraperitoneal laparoscopic nephrectomy and pyeloplasty. He has published widely on all aspects of urology and his current main area of research is Enhanced Recovery Surgery.
