AREAS OF EXPERTISE
Adam Jones qualified from the Middlesex Hospital Medical School with its highest undergraduate award, the Broderip Scholarship.
His initial surgical training was at Whipps Cross then Chase Farm Hospital, followed by his Specialist Registrar rotation in Urology in the Oxford region.
During this time Adam was awarded a prestigious one year Hunterian Professorship for his research into the blood supply to bladder cancers and disruption mechanisms.
Adam Jones has a special interest in laparoscopic surgery for benign and malignant urology conditions performing over 700 nephrectomies (kidney removal), as well as adding to the existing service for urological cancer.
He has also taught as a faculty member for ERUS (European Robotic Urology Symposium) training courses and was appointed to the Royal College of Surgeons of England Court of Examiners in 2013-present.
Adam has pioneered robotic surgery in Reading, both clinically, performing over 500 radical prostatectomies and also by leading the ‘Robbie the Robot Appeal’. This appeal brought the first Da Vinci robot to Reading in 2008. Adam also works on the European Robotic Urology Symposium helping to train robotic surgeons of the future.
In conjunction with Paul Rogers (oncologist) and Peter Malone Adam has helped to build up the prostate brachytherapy service in Reading to be one of the busiest ‘real time’ centres in Europe with over 1000 patients treated.
Adam says; “Working in a unit with expertise in both brachytherapy and robotic surgery is uncommon in the UK and means our patients really do get a genuine choice of treatments for their prostate problems”.
Adam Jones joined Reading Urology in 2003 after being appointed to the Royal Berkshire NHS Foundation Trust in 2002.
Adam was nominated as Health Worker of the Year in the Pride of Reading awards for his work in raising funds to keep the Da Vinci robot at the Royal Berkshire Hospital.
“Consultant Urologist Adam Jones won the Health Worker of the Year category for leading the Robbie the Robot fundraising efforts. Adam has climbed mountains – literally – run half marathons and staged quiz nights for the Robbie appeal. Aside from helping raise many tens of thousands of pounds, Adam and his team have brought national fame to the Trust and our pioneering work in robotic surgery.” Royal Berkshire Hospital
