Research interests

Mr Khan’s research into the close relationship of the neuro-vascular bundles responsible for erectile function to the seminal vesicles and prostate gland, published in Clinical Anatomy, has played a role in the greater understanding of nerve preservation during radical prostatectomy, and more recently complemented interest in total and partial seminal vesicle sparing radical prostatectomy.

See what patients are saying about Farooq Khan


I was introduced to Mr Khan following an emergency visit to L&D's  A&E department. In a very few moments I warmed to his pleasant and sympathetic bedside manner, which I felt was "uber " important at that moment. Following admission to the general ward and subsequently I found Mr Khan's kind manner very inspiring and uplifting . He quickly diagnosed my problem and fully explained what I could expect regarding ongoing treatment etc. responding promptly to my email questions following discharge.  If my son, daughter, friend, colleague or even a passer- by in the street had a problem with their water works I would have no hesitation in recommending Mr Khan as my first choice.
