Mr. Rustom Manecksha

Clinical Associate Professor (Surgery)


A graduate from the School of Medicine, University College Dublin in 2000, I was awarded an M.D. from Trinity College Dublin for work on prostate cancer progression to androgen independence. I completed a 2-year Endourology Fellowship at the Austin Hospital in Melbourne, Australia. I was the recipient of the Anthony Walsh/Ipsen/RCSI Travelling Fellowship, the Ethicon Travelling Fellowship and the RCSI Travelling Fellowship. On completion of my clinical fellowship in 2013, I returned to a locum consultant position in St. James's Hospital running the National Cancer Control Programme's rapid access prostate clinic. I was subsequently appointed Consultant Urological Surgeon in St. James's and Tallaght Hospitals, Dublin in 2014. My special interests are in endourology, kidney stone disease, BPH, minimal access renal surgery and prostate cancer. I have an active clinical research profile, with national and international collaborations as well as links with the Institute of Molecular Medicine, Trinity Centre for Health Sciences.
