Richard Menzies-Wilson


Doctoral Student

I am a Urological Surgical Registrar in Oxford currently undertaking a Doctorate with Ben Turney. I was an undergraduate at the University College London (UCL). I was in the founding team and Medical Advisor for ‘LabGenius’, a biotechnology start-up company, where I contributed towards winning numerous ‘Innovate UK’ Research Grants and Venture-Capital funding.

My clinical and research interest is in improving the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of kidney stones and benign prostatic enlargement. I am currently undertaking a Doctorate, supervised by Ben Turney and sponsored by Boston Scientific, focused on the design and evaluation of new endourological surgical technology to treat kidney stones. 

Kidney stone disease is a major clinical and economic health burden, affecting ~20% of men and ~10% of women by 70 years of age. ‘Ureteroscopy’ operations are the mainstay of treatment for kidney stones, but the operation often fails to remove all the kidney stone debris. My doctoral research aims to optimise the flow of irrigation fluid during ‘ureteroscopy’ operations to improve kidney stone clearance and reduce the surgical risks.
