Rob Gray is a consultant urological surgeon. He is appointed at both Buckinghamshire and Oxford University Hospitals in his NHS role. He qualified in medicine and surgery with honours in 2008 and trained in Bristol, Oxford, and London before taking a substantive post in Buckinghamshire.
He undertook surgical training in the Oxford region before transferring to London (after ranking in the top three trainees in the country via National Selection) to complete his subspecialist training with training posts at Kings College Hospital, St George’s hospital, Epsom and St Helier and latterly Guy’s and St Thomas’ Hospitals in London as a senior registrar with a particular focus on kidney cancer surgery, stone and laser prostate surgery.
Since arriving in Buckinghamshire he has built a strong reputation for high-quality minimally invasive kidney, stone, and prostate surgery and has introduced advanced prostate diagnostic and treatment modalities to the region. Rob has introduced Urolift, supine PCNL, transperineal prostate biopsy, and robotic kidney surgery to the patients of Buckinghamshire. For kidney cancer, he has excellent outcomes and maintains a high-volume caseload, and works between Wycombe hospital and The Churchill hospital in Oxford to carry out the bulk of his NHS surgery.
He is the regional representative for training registrars and regularly attends meetings as well as being an active member of the Royal Society of Medicine, Urology section to ensure he is up to date. His research profile is available to view at Researchgate.
He is married to another consultant urologist in London and has a young daughter. In his free time, he enjoys cycling, tennis, strategy games, repairing his beloved classic car, and traveling to Italy and France.
