About

Mr Hashim Ahmed is a consultant urological surgeon who has pioneered ground-breaking changes regarding how men are diagnosed with prostate cancer and subsequently, what the best treatments are for such outcomes.

He has carried out, and continues to lead, a programme of clinical research to bring new techniques in prostate diagnosis using novel imaging, and tissue biomarkers to clinical practice. He is particularly renowned for the "focal therapy" prostate treatments that he provides. These treatments provide not only an alternative but less risk of harm compared to traditional surgery and radiotherapy, both in terms of quality of life and sexual function.

He is a global authority on MRI and minimally invasive methods for the diagnosis and treatment of prostate cancer using HIFU and Electroporation.

Popularly known as Hash - he qualified from the University of Oxford where he attended St Peters College and Linacre College. Whilst he was a student he was awarded the William Osler Prize in Medicine.

He has a passion for research and constantly strives to improve the care he can provide his patients with new techniques. He was a Pelican Cancer Foundation Research Fellow followed by an MRC Clinician Research Training fellowship at University College London at which time a number of imaging and focal therapy trials were started.

He is married with two sons with a close-knit extended family, who are very supportive of his work. 

“I’ve got the balance that I need to remain motivated, to remain ambitious, to carry on in my career, without sacrificing the family side. I hope that I’ve got that right.”
