Marcelino Yazbek Hanna

I am UK board certified Urological Surgeon with specialist interest in Robotic Surgery and Pelvic Uro-Oncology in particular prostate and bladder cancer. I also regularly perform core Urological procedures including Genito-scrotal surgeries, benign prostate and bladder outflow obstruction surgeries, template prostate biopsy as well as bladder and kidney stone surgeries. I completed my training in the Northwest Deanery in 2019 rotating in world renowned centres including the Christie Hospital Manchester (the largest cancer center in Europe) followed by a Royal College Accredited post CCT Robotic and Pelvic Oncology Fellowship at Leeds Teaching Hospitals. I worked as a Consultant Robotic Surgeon and Pelvic Oncologist in one of the largest UK centres since January 2021. I have vast research and teaching experience. I completed a postgraduate 3 years research at the University of East Anglia as a part of International Consortium for Urine Biomarkers for Prostate Cancer working in collaboration with world renowned researchers. I continue to actively collaborate and participate in Prostate Cancer and Urology Research. I have thought in various courses for surgical and urology trainees as well as undergraduate medical students at the University of East Anglia.
