Personal profile

Tom is a Consultant Urological Surgeon at Nottingham City Hospital, with a specialist interest in minimally invasive surgery, prostate and renal cancer, and all aspects of general urology.

He is lead cancer clinician for the Urology Department and member of the International Upper Tract Urothelial Cancer Collaboration. He is also Director of the Nottingham Fellowship in Robotic and Laparoscopic Urology, and has extensive expertise in robotic surgery for prostate and renal cancer.

In 2014, he performed East Midland’s first robotic prostatectomy, and has since introduced robotic partial nephrectomy, robotic pyeloplasty, laparoscopic retroperitoneal nephrectomy and local anaesthetic transperineal (LATP) prostate biopsy to Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust.

He is a member of the British Association of Urological Surgeons (BAUS) Executive Committee in Urological Oncology, a reviewer for the BJUI, Journal of Urology and European Urology, and has published extensively in the field of urological cancer.

Tom Walton qualified with a first-class honours degree from Nottingham University Medical School in 1998. After basic surgical training he undertook a period of research focusing on the molecular basis of prostate cancer, leading to the award of Doctor of Medicine.

His urology training was undertaken in the Trent region, during which time he spent a dedicated fellowship year training in laparoscopic surgery. In 2010, Tom was awarded the Keith Yeates Gold Medal by the Royal College of Surgeons for outstanding performance in the FRCS(Urol) examinations.

Following completion of surgical training he spent a further year training in Laparoscopic and Robotic Urology in Melbourne, Australia under the tutelage of Professor Anthony Costello and Professor Declan Murphy.
