As a Consultant Urological Surgeon at Brighton and Sussex University Hospital,  Mr Zakikhani practices in all areas of general urology; his main sub-speciality interest being the minimally invasive management of urinary stone disease.

Mr Zakikhani was born in West Yorkshire, grew up in Birmingham and attended King Edward VI Five ways grammar school. 
In 1999 he attended the historic and internationally reputable medical school in Marischal College, University of Aberdeen. 
It was here that Mr Zakikhani discovered his surgical roots whilst undertaking traditional dissection anatomy classes and was subsequently awarded the Jamieson Medal. 

In 2007, he worked as a urology registrar in Wellington, New Zealand where he developed a passion for urology. 
Upon his return, he undertook specialist training on the East of Scotland Training Scheme, working in specialist centres in Edinburgh and Aberdeen.

In 2012, sub-speciality training took Mr Zakikhani to Sydney, Australia, where he underwent a 15 month fellowship in endoluminal surgery and upper tract cancer. 

The fellowship allowed him to hone his skills on laser prostate surgery focusing on enucleation techniques.  

He has since developed a sub-speciality expertise in, rigid and flexible ureteroscopy with laser stone fragmentation, and percutaneous stone surgery.
