He was Professor of Urology in India and has also served as an FRCS Urol Examiner. He has been training Programme Director for the London Deanery, Imperial Rotation, and was well liked by all of his trainees. He has also been a Lecturer for Institute of Urology and Oxford Trainees. He has extensive exposure to senior leadership roles within healthcare provision and professional institutions including Associate Medical Director and Chairman of the surgical division at Wexham Park Hospital. He also has a strong track record of achieving clinical targets within tightly controlled budgets, developing innovative strategies to improve patient care and optimise use of resources, for which he received a Bronze Award. He is a dedicated and committed surgeon, utilising teaching, surgical and medical skills for the greater good through international voluntary work, building capability and skills in reconstructive surgery in India and Africa. He was conferred a position as Visiting Professor - University of Khartoum, Sudan, 2009 in recognition of voluntary work in Sudan, conducting final Urology Examinations to train qualified surgeons, providing training to surgeons in reconstruction and carrying out complex surgery.

Prof Raj Persad, MB, BS, ChM, FRCS (Eng), FRCS (Urol), FEBU. Raj Persad, appointed in 1996, is a Consultant Urological Surgeon and Andrologist in Bristol. In his clinical role, he is one of the most experienced pelvic cancer surgeons in the UK and was one of the first in the UK to practice female neobladder reconstruction following cystectomy for invasive bladder cancer. He has subspecialised over many years in precise surgical techniques which improve both oncologic and functional outcomes. This includes techniques ranging from 1) the use of the Da Vinci Robot for performing Robot Assisted Laparoscopic Radical Prostatectomy, 2) High Intensity Focused Ultrasound for minimally invasive non-surgical treatment of prostate cancer and 3) Rectal Spacer and Fiducial Marker precision placement for optimizing the outcomes of Image Guided Radiotherapy for prostate cancer. Prof Persad has been a National pioneer in minimally invasive techniques for the treatment of Symptomatic Benign Prostatic as an alternative to Transurethral Prostatectomy (TURP). These techniques include Urolift (prostatic urethral lift) procedure which he does under general or local anaesthetic depending on patient preference as well as REZUM, steam treatment of the prostate. He also treats BPH with Green Light Laser. All these techniques are offered by Professor Persad for BPH as well as traditional TURP if tablet therapy has failed or cannot be tolerated by the patient. Academically, Prof Persad is involved in an extensive range of research with the Universities of Bristol, Pittsburgh, London and Oxford. These include the detection of early bladder and prostate cancer and novel imaging and treatment strategies for these diseases. He formerly led a team of researchers engaged in improving strategies for treatment of advanced prostate cancer in areas of hormonal treatment and immunotherapy (BPCRN). He has been Principal Investigator, Chief Investigator, and Collaborator in many National and International studies sponsored by the MRC, EORTC, CRUK, and NCRN.
