Mr Henderson completed his undergraduate training at Nottingham University and higher surgical training in the Oxford School of Surgery. He pursued his subspecialist interests of complex endourology and upper tract minimally invasive surgery through fellowships at the Bristol Urological Institute and Royal Perth Hospital, Australia. The Urology Foundation (TUF) awarded him a travelling scholarship which he spent in Nepal learning techniques for Percutaneous Renal Access. Other learning opportunities have taken him to France, Holland, Belgium, Germany, Switzerland, America, New Zealand and Australia.

Mr John Henderson was appointed as a Consultant Urological Surgeon to Gloucestershire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust in 2016. Since his appointment, he has performed the first robotic nephrectomy (kidney removal) and day case HoLEP (laser prostatectomy) in Gloucestershire. All of his outcomes for major surgery (nephrectomy and PCNL) are submitted to the BAUS national database and complication, transfusion and mortality rates are well below the national average. The men’s health charity Robocap invited him to be a trustee and he has promoted their work on BBC Radio Gloucester and across social media.

Mr Henderson has published widely in journals, written book chapters and presented around the world at conferences. He has accepted invitations to chair conference sessions, peer review papers, teach as faculty on courses and sit on the BAUS Section of Endourology Committee. Mr Henderson has an ongoing interest in research and recruits patients to clinical trials including RAMPART and PURE. He runs educational evenings for GPs and has written guidelines for the Gloucestershire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG).
