Mr Briggs is a Consultant Urological Surgeon at University College London Hospital NHS Trust. He qualified from St Bartholomew's Medical School in 1984 and after basic surgical training and gaining his FRCS Mr Briggs embarked on a career in Urology. After finishing his training he spent a year in the Concorde Hospital in Sydney Australia.
As a Consultant he has developed an interest in prostate cancer and bladder cancer. In 2012, he became part of the pelvic cancer team at University College London Hospital where he routinely performs robotic radical prostatectomies for the treatment of prostate cancer, cystoprostatectomies (removal of prostate and bladder) and cystectomies for the treatment of bladder cancer.
In his Private Practice, Mr Briggs investigates, diagnoses and treats patients with prostate and bladder cancer and perform transperineal prostate biopsies following multi-modality MRI in the diagnosis of prostate cancer. He also treats benign prostate disease and performs benign prostate surgery and scrotal/genital surgery. He has performed in excess of 200 laparoscopic radical prostatectomies, and well in excess of 500 robotic radical prostatectomies
Mr Briggs sees patients with most general urological conditions such as haematuria (blood in the urine), urinary tract infections, and female incontinence. Mr Briggs takes time to explain sensitive problems in plain English, not all Urology problems require surgery, so he explains all the different treatment options with his patients, helping them to come to the correct treatment choice that is right for them and in their own time.
