Greg Shaw Urologist and Robotic Surgeon

I work as a Consultant in Urology and robotic surgery at University College London Hospitals where I lead the robotic urology team. I am an honorary associate Professor at UCL. I work privately at The Prostate Centre, The Princess Grace Hospital, London Bridge Hospital and The London Clinic.

I qualified in medicine at St Bartholomew’s Medical College in 1999. My focus on prostate cancer started with an MD research degree at St Bartholomew's Hospital in 2005. Thereafter I trained as a urologist in North London where I earned Fellowship of the Royal College of Surgeons. I am listed on the specialist register of the GMC for Urology (GMC number: 4626222).


In order to further develop my interest in prostate cancer I took up a four year Lectureship at The University of Cambridge working in a world class research team and generating important findings from my research.

In Cambridge I began to develop my interest in robotic surgery that was consolidated through the prestigious Royal College of Surgeons of England Fellowship program from which I graduated in 2015.

I now perform 150 robotic prostatectomies per year, amongst the highest rate for UK urologists. I strive to evaluate and incorporate the best technical modifications to attain excellent results for my patients. I pride myself on my very low complication rate and strive for excellent outcomes.

My academic focus is to improve the way men are diagnosed and treated for prostate cancer. I am an Honorary Associate Professor at University College London and Honorary Senior Lecturer at Queen Mary University of London (QMUL). I 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.

I am director for the successful robotic surgery fellowship program at UCLH,  We currently have 6 senior fellows from around the world and pride ourselves on the high quality hands on supervised console training we provide for fellows who have completed core urology training and wish to develop as robotic oncological surgery specialists. Posts run for a year starting each October and January and are usually advertised 3 or 4 months in advance. Pre-application visits to the unit are encouraged for suitable candidates. Please email if interested. In addition I am a faculty member for robotic training courses at UCLH. I am a member of the All Party Parliamentary group on mens cancer.

I am the lead for Urology for the National Institute for Health Research (the research arm of the NHS) for North Thames. I was recently involved in training the staff for the NHS Nightingale Hospital in London.
