As a Consultant Urologist with a specialist interest in pelvic oncology, Mr Cross's post has allowed him the opportunity to focus on diseases of the prostate gland, specifically prostate cancer. Following a European Fellowship to train in robotic surgery in Sweden, he developed the robotic radical prostatectomy programme in Leeds. Robotically assisted minimally invasive surgery offers the benefits of an accelerated postoperative recovery.

Mr Cross's clinic offers a specialist service for men who are concerned that they may have prostate cancer and those who have been diagnosed with the condition.

Mr Cross specialises in the following treatments, tests and scans at Nuffield Health Leeds Hospital:
