Specialty

Urology

Training and education

Mr Dudderidge completed urological cancer and minimally invasive and robotic surgery fellowships at Imperial College London Hospital NHS Trust and Royal Marsden Hospital NHS Foundation Trust.

Experience

A urological surgeon with a specialist interest in urological cancer surgery and minimally invasive surgery, Mr Dudderidge's main focus is prostate and bladder cancer, laparoscopy and robotic surgery.

He worked as a consultant in the Royal Marsden Hospital providing bladder, prostate, renal and testicular services.

In August 2012, Mr Dudderidge worked with Prof John Kelly at UCL Hospitals, London to develop his experience of robotic radical cystectomy for bladder cancer. He also travelled on a TUF travelling scholarship to Professor Peter Wiklund at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, who was one of the pioneers of the procedure.

Mr Dudderidge's appointment in Southampton allows him to work with the team to develop state of the art uro-oncology services including robotics. He also leads clinical trials researching prostate cancer.

Key achievements

Whilst at the Royal Marsden, Mr Dudderidge delivered a high quality robotic prostatectomy service and presented the outcomes at national and international urology conferences including the recent European Robotic Urology Symposium, where he was awarded a prize for the best presentation. Mr Dudderidge also performed the first UK series of robotic retroperitoneal lymph node dissections for post chemotherapy testicular cancer patients.

Research

Mr Dudderidge has been researching diagnostic and prognostic biomarkers in bladder and prostate cancer for ten years. He is developing a new study to evaluate Mcm5, a new diagnostic test that may allow non-invasive diagnosis of prostate cancer.
