Mr Frank Lee
I won a place to read Medicine at the University of Cambridge in 1986. I obtained my BA (Hons) degree in Medical Sciences in 1989 and the following qualifications: MB BChir (Cantab) 1991, MA (Cantab) 1991.
Between 1997 and 2004, I received specialist training in Urology in London. I undertook research on the role of urinary sodium in the sensation of urgency in patients with an Overactive Bladder. I was awarded a British Urological Foundation Scholarship and the Short Paper Prize from the Urology Section of the Royal Society of Medicine.
Consultant Urological Surgeon
In 2003, I obtained my specialist qualification of FRCS (Urol). I undertook sub-specialty training in Female, Reconstructive and Neuro-Urology at the Institute of Urology in London and gained entry to the Specialist Registry in Urology of the General Medical Council in 2004. In the same year, I was appointed Consultant Urological Surgeon to St. George’s Hospital and Honorary Senior Lecturer to St George’s, University of London. I was Head of Department between 2008 to 2011.
Sub-Specialty Interests in Functional and Reconstructive Urology
I introduced the use of Botulinum toxin for Overactive and Neurogenic Bladder. I promoted the artificial urinary sphincter surgery for adult and adolescent patients. I worked closely with my Urogynaecology and Oncological Gynaecology colleagues in complex pelvic surgery. I collaborated with my Paediatric Urology colleagues to ensure a smooth transition of care for our Spina Bifida patients as they approach adulthood. I provided urological care to patients at Atkinson Morley Unit. I was a Personal Tutor and Responsible Examiner for Penultimate Year OSCE; Educational and Clinical Supervisor to trainees. After a year’s sabbatical in Singapore, I returned to the UK in 2015 to continue my sub-specialty interest in Functional and Reconstructive Urology at Stanmore Spinal Injury Unit and St George’s Hospital.
