One of the golden boys always appears in these lists, rated by other urologists and - according to his own website - his surgical outcomes are fantastic. However, we have had a couple of unfortunates on here who have reported that, when it goes wrong, he is very reluctant to acknowledge this or try to put it right. In one case, he allegedly refused to even see the patient again. Our Mr P cautioned us when we first talked about these golden lists to remember that some of the urologists have huge marketing machines behind them (who are perhaps motivated to put everything in a rosy light and manage or gloss over any negative reports) AND that the top urologists are unlikely to experience poor service from one of their peers, whereas the average Joe Bloggs might not have the same sway.
Undoubtedly, many of the men on this list are well known on the forum and have outstanding track records; it is also recognised that many of the men on the list are rated by their peers because they are willing to take on the difficult or complicated surgeries whereas some surgeons look like they have fantastic results because they cherrypick their patients.
Surprising but not surprising that no women made the list (if it was a list of top uro-oncologists, I can think of two women bound to be included) and I would love to meet Jonathan Aning, the only one on the list who doesn't do private work.
