He worked for more than three years in Blackpool Victoria Hospital where he developed stone service for the region. He set up Percutaneous nephrolithotomy service for the Fylde coast region.
He was involved in the development of electronic stent register, cancer pathways for fast-track investigation pathways for urgent suspected urological cancer referral that complies with current NICE guidelines, E-discharge platform and MDT workflow reconfiguration.
Mr Badrakumar is an educational supervisor for junior and middle-grade urology trainees.
He introduced Memokath ureteric stent insertion for patients who are dependent on long-term stents to maintain their renal function. This has eliminated or reduced the need for regular stent change.
