Prof. Shaw was my surgeon for a robotic nerve sparing radical prostatectomy. From the initial consultation (following a referral) throughout the entire process, up to and including my most recent 1 year PSA test follow up, Greg Shaw has been outstanding. My initial opinion by another surgeon was for a radical prostatectomy with certain lymph nodes also removed. Prof. Shaw and his radiology team’s view was that this was not necessary (and would have potentially added significant complications and have had long term implications), and he and the team have proven to be correct. Every interaction has been very professional and he has always taken sufficient time with me to explain/expand and answer any questions. Follow ups have been easy to arrange and always have been on time. I would highly recommend Prof Shaw and the team at the Prostate Center.
I Was Diagnosed with Prostate Cancer in April of 2022. After initial consultations with the NHS . I decided to proceed with Prof Shaw. I was obviously very scared and nervous about what was to come but Mr shaw reassured me throughout the journey and to this day still checks in with me to ensure everything is going in the right direction for which I am very Grateful.He is so easy to talk too and explained everything in a manner which I understood. I will be forever grateful for his time and the great care that he took of me.
Correct and precise. To say that my biopsy and cytoscopy caused me neither pain nor distress is an understatement. Perfect treatment. I must also thank Kat, Professor Shaw's PA, who was extremely helpful.
Well what can I say,thank you so much for your professional advice and support,put me at ease before and after surgery,top job done and so Happy and relieved to be in your hands for this operation,yet again can't thank you enough and to all of your amazing team, fantastic hospital and care.
I had put treatment off for years however Professor Shaw has made the whole process from diagnosis through to treatment so much less difficult than I had feared. Inspires high levels of confidence, he is always open for advice and with a great team around him.
Professor Shaw has been extremely helpful throughout my whole prostate cancer experience to date. Prior to my operation, he was most patient in listening to my concerns and in providing answers and reassurances to a range of questions I had prepared, prior to consultations. His bedside manner was most calming during my recovery from the operation itself and in post-operation consultations he again has been most helpful in listening to any concerns and answering any questions I have raised.
A great experience, Prof Shaw inspires confidence from the start and his warmth and experience really helped to navigate the difficult decisions.
Very professional, confident, reassuring. He explained the procedure with detail and answered all the questions.
Prof Shaw is clearly an eminent world class surgeon, his skill and care throughout the neurosafe procedure was exceptional. I am deeply grateful for the considerate and compassionate way he dealt with me through a life challenging process. Thank-you.
Very friendly, caring and professional
