Philip is a consultant urologist with an endourology bias at Monash Health, Melbourne, Victoria. He is clinical head of urology at Casey Hospital and a senior lecturer at Monash University. He also provides weekly services to rural Victoria, with clinics in Drouin and Sale and operating lists at both West Gippsland and Central Gippsland Hospitals.

His urology training was based at Newcastle upon Tyne, UK with lab based research in prostate cancer and clinical research in non-invasive urodynamics and hereditary aspects of cancer. Prior to moving to Australia in 2007 he was a consultant urologist in Kent, UK where he established the first lithotripter in the region, was on the Court of Examiners of the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh and was involved in the development of the intercollegiate urology examination.

In Australia he has overseen the expansion of urology at Casey Hospital with numerous publications and presentations at national and international meetings. In particular he has developed work into complete stone clearance using a modified supine position for PCNL and taken this technique across 4 continents. He has recently led the installation of only the second lithotripter in the state of Victoria and is establishing a number of trials to answer the unanswered areas of stone management.

Philip has also been heavily involved in teaching trainees in both Australia and the UK and has worked in Tanzania as part of the Urolink arm of BAUS and leads a regular trip to Tonga as part of RACS Pacific Islands Project.
