Mr Khan qualified from the King Edward Medical University (Mayo Hospital) in 1996 and trained at various prestigious urology institutions, which include the stone units at the Western General Hospital, Edinburgh, St.George’s Hospital, Tooting and Guy’s Hospital, London. After completing his specialist training in urology at the London/Kent Sussex & Surrey Deanery, he developed his specialist interest in urinary stone disease, advance endourology and upper tract laparoscopy.
Mr Khan is a Consultant Urological Surgeon, who predominantly employs minimally invasive surgical techniques i.e Laparoscopy (key-hole surgery), Endourological (through the urinary passage), Percutaneous (via a tiny skin incision on the back) and External Shock Wave Surgery (ESWL) to break up or remove kidney/ureteric stones.
Mr Khan is laparoscopically and robotically trained and with his dedicated team at East Surrey Hospital, routinely performs both radical nephrectomies and nephroureterectomies for renal and ureteric cancers.
He is actively involved in developing the CMR Robotic Programme at East Surrey Hospital, which in the future will in the future be a reference unit for training using the new CMR Surgical Platform.
Mr Khan also cares for patients with all aspects of general urology, including men seeking surgery for benign prostate hyperplasia. He is skilled in a variety of surgical procedures including monopolar/bipolar TURP, Greenlight and Holmium laser enucleation of the prostate gland.

Predicting Grade and Stage at Cystoscopy in Newly Presenting Bladder Cancers – a Prospective Double-Blind Clinical Study.
Mariappan P, Lavin V, Phua CQ, Khan SAA, Donat R, Smith G. Urology. 2017 Nov;109:134-139. doi: 10.1016/j.urology.2017.08.007. Epub 2017 Aug 14.
Experienced urologist are able to reliably predict the grade of the disease during endoscopic resection of newly diagnosed bladder cancer patients.
Identification of high risk cases allows experienced urologists to resect bladder tumours effectively thus minimising the risk of early recurrence.
It also helps in stratifying risk and apportion resources appropriately.

Laparoscopic surgery remains the standard of care for many surgical procedures. Its application in various surgical specialities has replaced traditional open surgical procedures with laparoscopic techniques that benefit by offering better cosmesis and improved operative and post-operative outcomes. Laparoscopy has evolved significantly from initially being a diagnostic tool to now providing the means for performing complex extirpative and reconstructive procedures intra-corporally. The incorporation of robotic systems has made LESS feasible in the modern surgical era.
Shahid Khan is a wonderful man. He's kind, empathetic and gentle. He's extremely professional and it was interesting talking to him about how he got into his field of medicine.
