Biography

Professor Kirby is the UK's best-known and most experienced prostate surgeon, whose reputation spreads internationally as a clinician, researcher, communicator and writer. He is always leading the way with patient care and has performed over 2000 radical prostatectomy operations (the last 950 using the da Vinci robot); written over 60 books and published more than 300 scientific papers. Roger is the founder and current editor of the journal Prostate Cancer and Prostatic Diseases and has been greatly involved in the development of prostate national guidelines, while maintaining his advanced expertise by attending scientific meetings and lecturing around the world.

Professor Kirby has continued to have a long-standing interest in the wider issues of men's health and patient safety alongside all of his work mentioned above and it is from this that he has launched a number of pioneering initiatives. He was Chairman of the charity Prostate UK until it became Prostate Action in 2010, and continues as a trustee; and is Secretary of The Urological Foundation. He has personally raised over '3 million through marathon running, mountain climbing, trekking and cycling challenges for both The Urology Foundation and Prostate UK.
