Personal profile

Mr Little qualified from Queens University, Belfast in 1995. He completed basic surgical training and an MD research project over the next few years, before moving to the west of Scotland to become a urology registrar. Completing registrar training and passing the FRCS(Urol) examination, he took up a consultant post in Ayr Hospital in 2008.

Since 2008, he has brought new surgical techniques to Ayrshire including laparoscopic (keyhole) kidney surgery, local anaesthetic injection of Botox to bladder, and laser treatment of the prostate for men with lower urinary tract symptoms. In addition, he has been trained in treatment of urinary stones using flexible ureteroscopy and laser lithotripsy.

Since 2014, he has been the Clinical Director for Urology in Ayrshire.
