About

  • Biography icon plus

    Greg Shaw is a leading prostate cancer surgeon with one of the highest caseloads for robotic radical prostatectomy in the UK. His NHS practice is at UCLH, the largest robotic pelvic surgery centre in the UK. He prides himself on his very low complication rate. None of the 500 patients on which he’s performed robotic radical prostatectomy as a consultant have needed emergency operations to correct complications of the surgery.

    He has a strong track record of leadership and research in prostate cancer and leads two UK trials designed to investigate ways of improving the health of men with prostate cancer. He completed the prestigious Royal College of Surgeons Fellowship in robotic surgery and was trained at Cambridge University where he worked for five years as a lecturer.

    He has pioneered a technique called NeuroSAFE which is designed to increase the possibility of safe nerve sparing, and therefore sexual potency, after robotic radical prostatectomy. He is leading an NHS funded study testing how effective this technique is.

    He is an expert in robotic surgery and employs the latest techniques to maximise the quality of life for patients undergoing radical prostatectomy. He is known for his work in scrutinising the way prostate cancer is diagnosed and treated and is an ambassador for men’s health.

    He maintains a very low complication rate and blood transfusion rate whilst doing over four times the number of robotic radical prostatectomies per year compared to the average UK prostate surgeon. He prides himself on maintaining strong relationships with the patients he treats, and many are prepared to talk with those contemplating surgery under his care.
