A/Prof Nick Brook is a consultant urologist with operative private practice at Calvary North Adelaide, Ashford, and Flinders Private Hospitals. Nick consults at North Adelaide, the Hills, Glenelg, Blackwood and Flinders and undertakes day case lists at Glenelg. He was a consultant urologist for 13 years at the Royal Adelaide Hospital before moving into full time private practice, and is an Associate Professor in Surgery at the University of Adelaide.
Nick undertook a urological cancer fellowship at the Princess Alexandra Hospital in Brisbane from 2008-2009, and was appointed as a consultant in Adelaide in 2009. He holds Fellowships of both the UK (FRCS Urol) and Australasian (FRACS Urol) Colleges of Surgeons, a Doctor of Medicine higher degree by research (MD) and has extensive basic science training (Bachelor of Science and Master of Science degrees).
He is trained in all aspects of adult urology and has a special interest in urological cancers. He has wide experience in the management of prostate, kidney, bladder and testicular cancer, including minimally invasive robotic surgery for prostate and kidney cancer. Nick recently spent a six-month, full-time sabbatical clinical fellowship in Europe undertaking advanced robotic prostate and kidney surgery.
Nick is also a high-volume robotic and open cancer surgeon, and performs brachytherapy for prostate cancer, so is able to offer patients all current options for urology cancer treatment.
His research interests encompass novel treatments for prostate and kidney cancer, and he is heavily involved in the ANZ Urological Trials Group and was the lead urologist on a number of clinical trials based at the Royal Adelaide Hospital. He has published extensively in peer-reviewed journals, was the Director of Urological Cancer at the RAH Urology department, and established and chaired the urological cancer multidisciplinary team there.
