Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Sunjay Jain include:
Lead Cancer Clinician for Urology.
Main surgical interests are in the treatment of bladder and ureteric cancer including cystectomy and nephroureterectomy including laparoscopic surgery.
Managing patients with prostate cancer.
I qualified from Guy's Hospital London in 1993 achieving MBBS with distinction and also first class honours in my intercalated BSc. Subsequent surgical training took place in the East Midlands with urological training in Nottingham, Derby and mainly Leicester where I was a clinical lecturer in the academic department of urology.
A strong research portfolio includes over 30 scientific papers and the award of an MD thesis. In 2002 I was awarded a Hunterian Professorship by the Royal College of Surgeons of England.
I was appointed to St James' Hospital in 2007 as a sub-specialist in uro-oncology. This involves diagnostic work-up of patients with suspected cancer and in particular radical surgery for prostate and bladder cancer. As well as cancer treatment I have an interest in the diagnosis of urinary symptoms and in particular the management of all diseases of the prostate. I am committed to ensuring the delivery of a quality service and have taken up the role of lead clinician for audit and clinical governance within the urology department.
