Dr James Thompson is an experienced robotic and minimally-invasive urological surgeon.

After graduating medicine from the University of NSW with first class honours, James undertook a 2-year residency at Royal North Shore Hospital before completing a 6-year Royal College of Surgeons accredited training program in urological surgery.

He travelled to the UK for a position as senior clinical fellow in robotic prostate and bladder cancer surgery at University College London Hospital and, in 2017, received the honour of being appointed a consultant surgeon performing robotic prostate and bladder cancer surgery there. Returning to Sydney in 2018, he brought with him an offering of sub-specialised robotic cancer surgery to Australians.

James is a senior lecturer at UNSW and a senior research fellow at the Kinghorn Cancer Centre. He has also completed a PhD in prostate cancer research, published over 40 peer-reviewed publications and textbook chapters, and is an investigator on several clinical trials.
