Thomas Tailly graduated as a medical doctor from the Catholic University Leuven, Belgium in 2007. He went on to complete his urology residency training in 2013 in Belgium at the same institution, where he developed a special interest in urolithiasis in all its aspects and minimally invasive treatment modalities of both benign and malignant pathologies. As a resident he seated on multiple boards of national urological organisations and was active in the European Society of Residents in Urology. After completing an Endourology Fellowship in London, Ontario, at Western University under the supervision of Dr. John Denstedt, Dr. Stephen Pautler and Dr. Hassan Razvi, he took a position as consultant urologist in the University Hospital of Ghent in Belgium. During his fellowship he finished a Master of Science degree in Surgery, with a special interest in urological stent and catheter design, biomaterial and coatings. Apart from his clinical work as the primary stone surgeon of the hospital, he is currently involved in both clinical and translational research on urolithiasis and its diagnostic and treatment modalities.
