Personal profile

Rob Gray is a consultant urological surgeon. He is appointed at both Buckinghamshire and Oxford University Hospitals in his NHS role. He qualified in medicine and surgery with honours in 2008 and trained in Bristol, Oxford and London before taking a substantive post in Buckinghamshire.

He undertook surgical training in the Oxford region before transferring to London (after ranking in the top three trainees in the country via National Selection) to complete his subspecialist training with training posts at Kings College Hospital, St George’s hospital, Epsom and St Helier and latterly Guy's and St Thomas' Hospitals in London as a senior registrar with a particular focus on kidney cancer surgery, stone and laser prostate surgery.

Since arriving in Buckinghamshire he has built a strong reputation for high-quality minimally invasive kidney, stone and prostate surgery and has introduced advanced prostate diagnostic and treatment modalities to the region. Rob has introduced Urolift, supine PCNL, transperineal prostate biopsy and robotic kidney surgery to the patients of Buckinghamshire. For kidney cancer he has excellent outcomes and maintains a high-volume case load and works between Wycombe hospital and The Churchill hospital in Oxford to carry out the bulk of his NHS surgery.

He is the regional representative for training registrars and regularly attends meetings as well as being an active member of the Royal Society of Medicine, Urology section to ensure he is up to date. His research profile is available to view at Researchgate.

He is married to another consultant urologist in London and has a young daughter. In his free time he enjoys cycling, tennis, strategy games, repairing his beloved classic car and travel to Italy and France.

Clinical Interests

Rob has a subspecialist interest in the management of kidney cancer, PUJ obstruction, kidney stones and prostate enlargement. He regularly performs laparoscopic (key-hole) and robotic assisted nephrectomy, partial nephrectomy and pyeloplasty. He offers a comprehensive surgical stone service including flexible ureterorenoscopy (telescopic laser surgery), laser lithotripsy and percutaneous nephrolithotomy including mini-PCNL (keyhole kidney surgery).

Throughout his training he has maintained a broad interest in general urology and looks to provide the highest possible standard of care for common urological conditions including hydrocele repair, vasectomy and vasectomy reversal, epididymal cyst excision, circumcision, treatment and surgery for varicoceles including keyhole repair.

The bulk of any urologists practice is prostate surgery and Rob offers a range of surgical procedures to suit the individual including Greenlight laser prostatectomy, Urolift, bipolar and monopolar TURP and has been instrumental to the introduction of HoLEP to the region with the recent purchase of a high-powered laser.

Rob takes an interest in the assessment and management of patients with visible blood in the urine and patients with prostatitis, recurrent urinary tract infection and bothersome urinary symptoms, much of which can be managed with the right medications and advice.
