Mr Maurice Lau

Consultant Urological Surgeon

Maurice came from Hong Kong completing his A-levels at Epsom College before embarking on his medical degree first at St. Andrews University followed by Manchester University graduating with an M.B.Ch.B.. Basic surgical training followed attaining F.R.C.S.(eng) before specialist urology training in Greater Manchester culminating in the award of F.R.C.S.(Urol).

His first Consultant appointment was to Wrightington, Wigan and Leigh in 2000, a busy district general hospital where he developed his interest in uro-oncology. He was then appointed in 2006 jointly to Salford Royal and The Christie NHS Trust as a Consultant Uro-Oncological Surgeon.

Since then Maurice has focussed his subspecialty interests to pelvic oncology and penile cancer. Maurice helped to establish robotic prostatectomy in the North West and started the robotic partial nephrectomy program at The Christie. He has a wealth of experience in robotic prostatectomy and contributes to the national BAUS audit database. Maurice also introduced template guided prostate biopsies improving the diagnosis of prostate cancer. He has further refined this by introducing local anaesthetic transperineal prostate biopsies.

Maurice helped establish the penile cancer service and presently is the Clinical Lead for that service. He has helped implement novel surgical techniques including sentinel node biopsy and minimally invasive groin node surgery

Maurice maintains an active clinical research interest both as principal investigator and co-investigator in many other trials. He has co-authored multiple papers in peer reviewed journals.
