Mr Dimitrios Moschonas is a Consultant Urological Surgeon at Royal Surrey Hospital NHS Foundation Trust. He is a member of the pelvic Uro-Oncology team and robotic Urology fellowship coordinator in Royal Surrey Hospital

He graduated from the University of Patras, Greece and undertook specialist Urology training in Athens, Greece. He was awarded his PhD degree with Honours from the University of Athens Medical School on “Impact of metabolic disturbances and glycotoxins on male reproductive system”. 

Mr Moschonas specialises in Robotic surgery for the treatment of prostate and bladder cancer. His training has enabled him to manage most aspects of male and female general Urology problems, stones and pelvic cancer diagnostics and treatment. He is also treating patients with paediatric foreskin problems. 

Currently, Mr Moschonas has introduced the new technique of Rezum treatment for benign prostate hyperplasia at his department. After starting transperineal prostate biopsies under local anaesthetic, he is now offering fusion-guided targeted prostate biopsies aiming to improve prostate cancer diagnostics.
