    About

    www.declancahill.co.uk

    Mr Declan Cahill is a Consultant Urological Surgeon. In 1993, he qualified at Charing Cross and Westminster Medical School (now Imperial College) with distinction.

    Much of his extensive medical career has been spent training in London. Owing to his medical excellence, he was awarded the Hallett Prize Gold Medal for General Surgery and then the Keith Yates Gold Medal for Urology. After completing his urology training in London, he undertook fellowship training at the Institut Mutualiste Montsouris in Paris, the world-leading institution at the time, where his specialism was minimally invasive prostate surgery.

    Mr Cahill has an excellent reputation in general urological diagnostics and treatment as well as his own specialist practice in prostate cancer. His specialist areas of interest include prostate cancer, robotic-assisted radical prostatectomy, general urinary diagnostics and management including urinary infection, benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), haematuria, and general conditions of the scrotum and penis.

    For robotic radical prostatectomy his results are equivalent to the best published results in the world for cancer margins, continence and potency. He operates on a very high volume of patients with prostate cancer each year, performing between three and five robotic radical prostatectomies per week.

    Mr Cahill instils confidence through explanation, clarity and obvious complete proficiency in his area of expertise. He was chosen after face-to-face discussion with several of the top consultants and surgeons in the country. He was willing to engage in thorough patient analysis of the issues and options, and certainly put me in the best possible frame for a life changing procedure. He has an excellent and highly proficient team around him which helped to provide a complete and thorough service.

    Mr Declan Cahill is a great Consultant. He takes great care to be supportive , and has a good bedside manner, which really puts you at ease, in what is often a very stressful time being diagnosed with prostrate cancer. I am the other side of the robotic surgery and have had my prostrate removed. This all went very smoothly, and my PSA is now undetectable which I have Declan to thank for that. I have had no issues with recovery, and I have full function of my bladder, currently working on my ED. Thank you to Declan and all his team.

    From my first appointment with Declan Cahill, I felt assured that I was in the best hands. He has an easy style that relaxes you in what is a very stressful time. He explains everything in great detail, which brings confidence to you. I opted for Robotic surgery with Declan ,and everything went smoothly. Declan called my partner as soon as the operation was complete. He has looked after me with incredible care, and I have always felt supported, and had a laugh or two along the way with him. I would recommend Declan to anyone who is facing prostrate cancer, he always goes the extra mile for you a top man.

    A highly professional, very approachable and likeable man at the very top of his profession. He combines gentleness with authority, empathy with directness, thorough explanation of medical/surgical processes with reassurance. He always makes you feel that he is in calm control, something that feels so important when one faces life-affecting decisions. I am very happy with having chosen him as my surgeon for my radical Prostatectomy earlier this summer... Thank you Declan.

    from the start Mr. Cahill’s assured empathetic professional manner served to put my mind at ease that I am entrusting my medical procedure in the hands of a top practitioner. This was further enhanced by clear and useful communication from MR. Cahill’s team through vimeo clips and written materials . I felt fully informed about the procedure itself and the post operative recovery aspects and time lines.

    Declan is one of the finest robotic prostate cancer surgeons I know. And given that I've worked and trained with the world's best, that's saying something! He has great results, is hugely invested in his patients, and exemplifies what being a great doctor and surgeon are. He is definitely one of the surgeons I look up to in order to improve my own performance. I can recommend him to any patient without hesitation.
