Recommended by:

  • byDr Miles Edward Christie, GP

    I recommend Mr Greg Shaw because I have found him to be hugely knowledgeable, extremely approachable on all aspects of urology and explains what could be potentially confusing information in a straightforward and affable manner. Patients feel very comfortable and confident in his care. I understand him to be an excellent surgeon with particular skill in robotic surgery for the prostate. But he is also my go-to man for the more everyday urological complaints of my patients. Highly Recommended.

He also works privately at The Highgate Hospital, The London Clinic, The Princess Grace Hospital, The Harley Street Clinic and The Prostate Centre.

    Mr Shaw qualified in medicine from St Bartholomew’s Medical College in 1999. His interest in prostate cancer developed with an MD research degree at St Bartholomew's Hospital in 2005. Thereafter he trained as a urologist in North London where he earned Fellowship of the Royal College of Surgeons. He then took up a four-year lectureship at The University of Cambridge working in a world-class research team and generating important findings from his research. Here he also developed an interest in robotic surgery that was consolidated through the prestigious Royal College of Surgeons of England Fellowship programme from which he graduated in 2015.

    Mr Shaw’s academic focus is on improving the way men are diagnosed and treated for prostate cancer. He is an Honorary Senior Lecturer at University College London and Queen Mary University of London (QMUL). He is the lead on the PROVENT study to evaluate the effects of aspirin and vitamin D on prostate cancer progression for men being treated with active surveillance and the NeuroSAFE PROOF study to evaluate the cost effectiveness of the NeuroSAFE procedure during radical prostatectomy. He is also a director for the robotic surgery fellowship program at UCLH, within the NHS.
