Munir has over 20 years of experience in the wide spectrum of urology.
Munir graduated after illustrious undergraduate years with honours in Internal Medicine, Pathology, Anatomy and Public Heath. After a substantial experience in General Surgery, Munir trained in Urology in London, Eastbourne and the East Midlands, specifically Nottingham, Derby, and Leicester.
He completed his CCST in 1998 and was appointed as Consultant Urological Surgeon at Bromley Hospitals NHS Trust, which is now part of South London Healthcare Trust, in February 1999. He brought his expertise in Laser surgery, Kidney stone surgery, Andrology and Infertility along with extensive operating and service organisation experience in day to day Urology to the Trust.
Aside from developing his areas of special interest, he focused on developing patient-focused pathways of care with a smooth journey for patients through the system, and wherever possible single-stop clinics. He established Andrology and Fertility service, with his gynaecological colleagues, Laser treatment for the prostate and kidney stones, Laparoscopic (Key-hole) treatment for kidney cancer and key-hole surgery for stones.
As part of cancer networks, he has a major involvement in cancer investigation and treatment. Currently, Munir sees nearly 3000 patients a year in the NHS and a large number in local private hospitals. He has forged links with colleagues in colo-rectal, upper GI and gynaecological surgery so that his patients benefit from integrated care with individualised, focused care. He works in close association with his GP colleagues for the patient care to continue seamlessly even after the patients are discharged from his immediate care.
