Profile

Christof Kastner has been a Consultant Urologist based in Cambridge since 2009. He is Professor of Urology at the International Medical School of Rome ‘Tor Vergata’.

His specialist training took place in hospitals including Guy’s Hospital, UCL (both in London) and the Prostate Centre in Guildford, and for his early consultant years he worked under the mentorship of Prof David Neal.

Mr Kastner is one of the internationally leading experts in assessment and treatment of benign and cancerous prostatic disease. Having formed an international collaboration between his colleagues in Cambridge and other centres in Europe and Australia, he has been senior author of multiple publications, which have changed the approach to prostate cancer assessment.

For men presenting with symptoms of prostate enlargement or the suspicion of prostate cancer, Mr Kastner can offer a wealth of expertise based on his experience and evidence and allowing an individually tailored assessment and treatment using minimally invasive approaches to minimise side-effects.

Christof and his colleagues in urology, radiology and pathology were the first in the UK to be able to offer MRI-based transperineal biopsy technology to diagnose prostate cancer. They have gathered the largest experience in the UK and are amongst the top in the world.

The accuracy of his assessment allows us to counsel patients with high confidence and inform about treatment options like Robotic prostatectomy, Radiotherapy, Brachytherapy, including Focal therapy, Active surveillance, Hormonal treatment and Chemotherapy. Mr Kastner is part of the multidisciplinary team providing brachytherapy for the East Anglia Region.

For patients with symptoms suggesting benign obstruction of the urinary flow by the prostate (Lower urinary tract symptoms or LUTS) Mr Kastner offer Holmium Laser Enucleation of Prostate (HoLEP) – He has performed more than 1,000 HoLEPs since 2007.
