Gordon has published in a number of fields from basic research into prostate cancer to the
description of new surgical techniques in a number of areas of urology. Many of his publications are seen as pioneering descriptions of new techniques or provide a new standard of care.
His first paper (in the field of prostate cancer) was published in 1994:
Reproducible standard technique for GreenLight laser prostatectomy:
Using TP prostate biopsy instead of transrectal for diagnosis of prostate cancer – more accurate (other papers show greater safety):
Minor surgery to avoid circumcision in men with foreskin problems:
Help for men with worries about their genitals and body image, resulting in the largest study of penis size ever published:
He has also helped describe new options in bladder cancer, diagnosis of testicular cancer and erectile dysfunction:
Recent publications have looked at general aspects of ethics and trial design in medicine as well as urology research. He is currently working also on the moral and ethical aspects of social media in healthcare, and the problems of current legal aspects of consent to treatment as it affects UK Healthcare, and the risks health workers take in their daily life:

These links are websites I trust and which bring real value to patients. I hope they will be useful to you. For other sites, read widely but be sceptical of claims. I am lucky to work with expert colleagues in all areas of urology and cancer, and we offer almost every effective option available. In some clinics be aware that for a man with a hammer, everything looks like a nail….
