Simon Wilkinson graduated with distinction from the Royal Free Medical School, London in 1996. Following graduation, he undertook five years general surgical training in London and Bristol. He then spent a year in the United States undertaking prostate cancer research at the University of Chicago.
After returning to the UK, Simon completed six years higher urology training in the Wessex region. Towards the end of training, he was awarded a six-month fellowship by the Endourology Society to undertake advanced training in laparoscopic and robotic surgery at the University of Toronto.
Immediately prior to his consultant appointment, he was awarded a twelve-month fellowship by the Royal College of Surgeons gaining expertise in complex cancer surgery at University Hospital Birmingham.
As well as offering all aspects of general urology, Simon’s specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of prostate, bladder and renal cancer. He is one of three surgeons leading prostate cancer services across Portsmouth and the Isle of Wight. Simon was instrumental in establishing the first robotic surgery service along the South Coast. Using the da Vinci platform, he is a high volume robotic surgeon publishing outcomes through the British Association of Urological Surgeons.
I can offer rapid diagnostics for many urological conditions including haematuria (blood in urine), urinary infections and elevated PSA. For men with suspected prostate cancer, I have rapid access to multiparametric MRI and, if appropriate, targeted fusion biopsies.
