Mr Peter William Cooke
Consultant Urological Surgeon
MB ChB MD FRCS(Urol)
Practices at: BMI The Priory Hospital
He is the leading robotic surgeon in the Midlands region and has personally performed over 1000 complex urological cases over the last 10 years. His annual robotic radical prostatectomy caseload is now twice the national average.
He was the first surgeon in any speciality to offer daVinci robot-assisted surgery in the Midlands region. In 2010/11 he led the introduction of robotic surgery at the Royal Wolverhampton Hospitals NHS Trust, and through his clinical vision, leadership and commitment to surgical excellence have set the standard in surgical precision for other surgeons to follow.
He graduated from Birmingham University in 1989 and trained in general and urological surgery all around the West Midlands. He has undertaken specialist training in laparoscopic and robotic surgery in Birmingham, London, Edinburgh, Paris, Hamburg and Nashville, USA.
He was appointed to the Royal Wolverhampton Hospitals NHS Trust in 2003 and over many years has striven to develop the urological laparoscopy and robotic team there. Since 2009 the service has expanded to perform hundreds of complex laparoscopic or robotic procedures annually, including prostatectomy, nephrectomy, pyeloplasty, cystectomy and partial nephrectomy for small kidney cancers, with audited outcomes comparable to large European and US cancer centres.
His academic interests are in prostate and bladder cancer, being cited in Marquis Who’s Who in Science and Engineering in 2001. He was awarded the higher degree of Doctor of Medicine in 2001 for his research on novel treatments for bladder cancer, carried out at the prestigious Institute for Cancer Studies at Birmingham University.
He has numerous publications in respected international journals including the Lancet, and has presented his work at national and international meetings in Europe and USA. He was an expert reviewer for the Cancer Research UK information service, Cancerhelp UK. He was also the lead clinician for urological research in Wolverhampton, where he is Principal Investigator for the numerous studies in prostate and bladder cancer.
He was an Honorary Senior Lecturer at the University of Birmingham, where he helped redesign undergraduate training in urology across the region, and a member of the West Midlands Higher Specialist Training Committee.
He is committed to excellence in urological practice and training, and lectures in many settings on surgical innovation, service development and patient safety.
His clinical interests are prostate and bladder cancer including diagnostic pathways, prostate imaging and transperineal MRI fusion-guided prostate biopsy.
