Professional statement

Mr Simon Brewster is a consultant urological surgeon with more than 27 years' experience of clinical practice in urology. With a private practice in Oxford running alongside his senior NHS consultant position, Mr Brewster offers state-of-the-art care for the diagnosis and management of prostate cancer, benign prostate enlargement symptoms, prostatitis, urinary tract infections (UTI), scrotal conditions and blood in the urine (haematuria).

After qualifying as a doctor from London's Charing Cross Hospital in 1986 with a first class degree in anatomy and honours in pathology, Mr Brewster undertook his training in surgery and a doctorate research thesis based in Bristol. In 1998 he was appointed as a consultant in Oxford and pioneered the prostate cancer and HoLEP services there. He has led the University Hospitals department with teaching, clinical management, clinical governance and is currently an elected staff governor for the NHS Foundation Trust with the responsibility to hold the non-executive directors to account. He is a fellow and clinical student tutor at Hertford College, Oxford. Nationally and internationally, Mr Brewster has influenced specialist training and auditing of surgical outcomes by working on two committees of the British Association of Urological Surgeons (BAUS) and the uro-oncology Board of the European Association of Urologists.

Mr Brewster performs MRI-targeted prostate biopsy, diagnostic bladder examinations (cystoscopy) and a wide range of surgery with a high level of patient satisfaction. For prostate and bladder symptoms he offers all medical options and recent surgical innovations including holmium laser enucleation (HoLEP) and Rezum steam ablation which have the advantages of reduced bleeding, side-effects and a very short hospital stay compared to traditional prostate surgery. He also has considerable experience with ultrasound-guided prostate brachytherapy and SpaceOAR implants prior to prostate radiotherapy as well as day-case injections to treat incontinence after prostatectomy.

Mr Brewster maintains an active interest in research and education; he has produced over 90 publications in books and peer-reviewed journals. He is a co-author of the very popular Oxford Handbook of Urology, now in its 4th edition. He undergoes annual appraisal and revalidates with the GMC every five years. With extensive experience in patient care and urological surgery when necessary, Mr Brewster offers a comprehensive evidence-based and personalised service to private patients within and beyond Oxfordshire.
