Mr David Hrouda qualified at St Thomas's Hospital Medical School in 1989 and carried out postgraduate surgical training in London at St George's Hospital, the Institute of Urology (University College Hospital) and Charing Cross Hospital. He was awarded an MD thesis (2000) for research into prostate cancer vaccines and gene therapy. He then undertook further training in laparoscopic urological surgery at Princess Alexandra Hospital in Brisbane and subsequently learned additional techniques while doing a preceptorship at the Cleveland Clinic, Cleveland, Ohio. He has been a consultant urological surgeon at Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust (Charing Cross Hospital) and West Middlesex University Hospital since 2002. He has a special interest in the diagnosis and treatment of testis, kidney and bladder cancer with specialist skills in laparoscopic surgery, cystectomy and bladder reconstruction. He has performed over 1000 laparoscopic kidney operations. He performs post-chemotherapy retroperitoneal lymph node dissection for the north west London and Mount Vernon cancer networks. Since 2008 he has been the lead clinician for urology at Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust and is chair of the specialist multidisciplinary team for urological cancer for north west London. He was chair of the urology tumour working group of the north west London cancer network from 2007 to 2013 and is now a member of the urology pathway group of the London cancer alliance. From 2012 through 2014 he was a member of the National Cancer Research Institute (NCRI) clinical studies group for bladder cancer and a member of the Screening, Prevention & Early Diagnosis advisory group (SPED) of the NCRI. He is also a member of the senate of the clinical reference group for specialist urology, NHS England.
