Benjamin Namdarian

Consultant Urologist
Guy's and St Thomas Foundation Trust

Ben is a consultant urological surgeon with a special interest in the utilisation of technology in urological practice, minimally invasive treatments of prostatic and renal diseases, as well as the management of congenital disorders in Transitional Urology.

Ben was awarded his urological fellowship with the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons in 2016 having trained in Melbourne and Sydney with his thesis looking into novel cancer neovascularisation biomarkers. He then undertook fellowships in Robotics at Guy’s and St Thomas’ Trust under Ben Challacombe and Prokar Dasgupta, followed by Adolescent/Transition Urology with Dan Wood at University College London Hospital.

Ben has adopted and helped to disseminate various techniques in prostate cancer diagnostics and BPH treatments such as Urolift and HoLEP within the NHS. With Ben Challacombe he has helped to establish a robotic reconstructive service at Guy's Hospital and at UCLH Ben established Mitrofanoff laser stone treatment. Most recently he coordinated the introduction of a Transperineal Biopsy service at Lewisham and Greenwich Trust in London, whilst in Sydney, Australia he facilitated launching the Biobot Monalisa robotic fusion transperineal prostate biopsy platform.

Ben has published widely across diverse urological disciplines and has written a number of book chapters on robotics and Urological anatomy. His current research interests are in robotic surgical training, trans-perineal template biopsy techniques and extending the role of technology in reconstructive surgery. Ben has been involved in robotic surgery for over 10 years and is keen to see the technology's role expanded.

Ben enjoys singing having been a principle tenor with Victorian Opera and Melbourne Symphony Orchestra as well as routinely cycling fundraising events. He is fortunate to have a supportive wife and three young daughters.
