Michael is a consultant urologist specialising in andrology, based at the Royal Infirmary in Glasgow where he has worked for 13 years . He gained his primary medical qualification in Aberdeen and trained in urology in Yorkshire before returning to Scotland in 2002. Michael consults privately for men’s health and urology issues at the Nuffield Health Glasgow Hospital. He is an active member of the European Society of Sexual Medicine and sits on the Executive Committee of the BAUS Section of Andrology.
His main clinical interests are the management of Peyronie’s disease and the surgical treatment of erectile dysfunction. His unit is the major centre in Scotland for the implantation of penile prostheses, and is now one of the high volume centres in the U.K. for this specialised service. Michael developed this specialisation under the mentorship of two of the world’s leading andrologists, Mr Ian Eardley from Leeds and Dr Steve Wilson from the U.S. He now receives referrals from all over Scotland for complex functional penile surgery.
Michael has been delighted to see an upsurge in the interest in the area of men’s health, with greater interest and awareness than ever in prostate disease and erectile dysfunction in particular. Men’s health, as an entity, remains poorly provided for and Michael’s vision is one of an all-inclusive service to address the common health and lifestyle issues faced by men today.
