Mr Ben Challacombe

Trustee

I support TUF because I'm passionate about urology and treating people with urological diseases and TUF funds key research to enable this. TUF supported me in my early career, and continues to support the training needs of other surgeons to help improve the lives of our patients.

Ben Challacombe is a consultant urologist at Guy's and St. Thomas' NHS Foundation Trust. Ben is an expert in robotic surgery and completed a dedicated da Vinci robotic fellowship in Melbourne, Australia. He has a particular focus on laparoscopic and robotic procedures, as well as HoLEP laser treatment for benignly enlarged prostates. He has performed more Robotic Partial Nephrectomies than any other surgeon in the UK and has written over 190 peer-reviewed publications and 20 book chapters on prostate and kidney disease. Before joining the board, Ben was a successful fundraiser and supporter for TUF, including taking part in many running and cycling challenges.
