Profile

Simon Brewster specialises in prostate cancer and other prostate disease (PSA kinetics, benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), prostatitis). He is trained as a general urologist and treats a variety of conditions including blood in the urine (haematuria), bladder cancer and recurrent urinary infections. Simon finished his basic medical training at Charing Cross Hospital in 1986, graduating with honours in Pathology and a 1st class BSc degree in Anatomy. He worked as an anatomy demonstrator at his medical school for a year before moving to Bristol to train in Urology.

During this time he developed his interest in prostate disease, having spent two years in full-time laboratory research, leading to the award of his MD doctorate thesis in 1993 from Bristol University. During the final stages of his training he attained the FRCS (Urology) and went to John Hopkins Hospital, Baltimore to develop expertise in radical prostatectomy with Dr Patrick Walsh. He was appointed as a consultant and honorary senior lecturer in Oxford in 1998, where he pioneered the prostate cancer diagnostic and active surveillance services, radical prostatectomy, transperineal prostate biopsy and Holmium laser prostate enucleation (HoLEP). He currently sits on the Board of Governors and leads on undergraduate teaching and clinical governance for the urology department of Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. New procedures he can offer include SpaceOAR gel implant and Rezum convective ablation of the prostate.

Research

Since qualifying as a doctor, Simon has authored 89 peer-reviewed papers and two textbooks, including the successful Oxford Handbook of Urology, now in its 4th edition (Oxford Univ. Press). His MD thesis was written about molecular genetic abnormalities in prostate cancer.

He contributes to clinical trials, currently including a randomised trial of focal therapy versus radical prostatectomy for prostate cancer. He is a Fellow of Hertford College (Oxford University) where he provides its medical students with clinical teaching and pastoral support.

Simon contributes to the content of several patient information booklets and webpages produced by Prostate Cancer UK and helped to found the Oxfordshire Prostate Cancer Support Group in 2010.
