About Us : Consultants : Mr Rick Popert

RickPopertRick Popert was appointed as a consultant in 1996 having completed his higher surgical training at Guy's Hospital and urological research at King's College Hospital.  Mr Popert's clinical expertise is in the comprehensive evalulation and surgical treatment of benign and malignant prostatic disease.

His surgical expertise is in:

ROBOTIC RADICAL PROSTATECTOMY

DYNAMIC PROSTATE BRACHYTHERAPY

HOLMIUM LASER PROSTATECTOMY

PRECISION PROSTATE DIAGNOSTICS WITH MRI FUSION BIOPSIES

He has successfully transferred his experience from conventional open radical prostatectomy to the robotic assisted approach. He has carried out over 600 robotic prostatectomies since 2006. 

He has the UK's largest experience of single visit dynamic intra-operative prostate brachytherapy and has carried out over 800 of these cases since 2004, with Dr Stephen Morris and Dr Ronald Beaney, Consultant Clinical Oncologists.

He is an expert in Precision Prostate Diagnostics and has developed a rapid access prostate MRI assessment service with Dr Giles Rottenberg, Consultant Radiologist,  along with a unique systematic transperineal biopsy approach which provides accurate tumour localisation, an approach that has been further enhanced by the technique of MRI fusion targeted biopsy of the prostate which he introduced in March 2012.  

For benign prostatic disease, he has one of the UK's largest experience of holmium laser prostatectomy (HoLEP). He has carried out over 800 holmium laser enucleations with reduced bleeding and length of stay in patients with prostate volumes larger than 100 cc compared with standard transurethral prostatectomy (TURP).

In 2014 he introduced a prostate arterial embolisation service in association Dr Tarun Sabharwal, Consultant Interventional Radiologist.  This is an alternative to the surgical management of benign prostatic disease avoiding the complications of urinary incontinence, erectile and ejaculatory dysfunction.
