Personal profile

Professor Langley has an international reputation in the area of prostate cancer.

He was first to describe the technique of a  transperineal template biopsy  of the prostate in 2004,  a new improved way to examine the prostate, which minimises infection and increases the accuracy of detection.

He also has been a pioneer of prostate Brachytherapy, a minimally invasive technique to treat prostate cancer using tiny radioactive seeds implanted into the prostate under a light anaesthetic.  He has treated over 3,500 patients and for low and intermediate risk prostate cancer his cure rates exceed 90% with less than 1% incontinence and over 80% potent. He also undertakes robotic radical prostatectomy for men more suited to radical surgery.

He has a wide practice specialising in all the areas of prostate diseases using the latest techniques including multi-parametric MRI for biopsy targeting and PMSA PET:CT scans for staging advanced cancers.
