Mr Timothy Paul Briggs

Personal profile

I am a Consultant Urological Surgeon at University College London Hospital NHS Trust. I qualified from St Bartholomew's Medical School in 1984 and after basic surgical training and gaining my FRCS I embarked on a career in Urology. After finishing my training I spent a year in the Concorde Hospital in Sydney Australia.

As a Consultant I have developed an interest in prostate cancer and bladder cancer. In 2012 I became part of the pelvic cancer team at University College London Hospital where I routinely perform robotic radical prostatectomies for the treatment of prostate cancer, cystoprostatectomies (removal of prostate and bladder) and cystectomies for the treatment of bladder cancer. 

In my Private Practice, I investigate, diagnose and treat patients with prostate and bladder cancer and perform transperineal prostate biopsies following multi-modality MRI in the diagnosis of prostate cancer. I also treat benign prostate disease and perform benign prostate surgery and scrotal/genital surgery. I have performed in excess of 200 laparoscopic radical prostatectomies, and well in excess of 500 robotic radical  prostatectomies

I see patients with most general urological conditions such as haematuria (blood in the urine), urinary tract infections, and female incontinence. I like to take time to explain sensitive problems in plain English, not all Urology problems require surgery, so I explain all the different treatment options with my patients helping them to come to the correct treatment choice that is right for them and in their own time.  


In my spare time I am a keen cyclist.
