My name is Asif Muneer and I am a Consultant Urological Surgeon and Andrologist based at University College London Hospital, UK.
I have a specialist interest in both medical and surgical andrology including male infertility and vasectomy reversal, erectile dysfunction, Peyronie’s disease, genital oncology and oncoplastic reconstruction.
My research MD was at UCL and was based on looking into smooth muscle dysfunction of the corpus cavernosum in the penis. I was trained in surgery in Oxford and then took visiting fellowships at the University of Bern, University of Paris as well as completing a Senior Fellowship at University College London Hospital.
I have received a number of awards including the British Urological Foundation award, the Ethicon fellowship, the Ralph Shackman fellowship and Royal Society of Medicine award. I was also awarded the Keith Yeates Gold Medal for the FRCS(Urol) examination and more recently a Urology Foundation award to MD Anderson in Texas.
I have published a considerable amount of research on all aspects of urology and co-edited three books: Viva Practice for the FRCS(Urol), the Textbook of Penile Cancer and An Atlas of Male Genitourethral Surgery.
As well as lecturing throughout the UK as well as internationally, I am involved in teaching the surgeons of tomorrow, organising courses and performing live surgery at the Institute of Urology Genitourethral Masterclass. I am also a course director at the Royal College of Surgeons Core Surgical Skills Course. I also regularly review the research papers of other surgeons and academics and am an assistant editor for a urology journal.
Currently I am the President of the British Society for Sexual Medicine and the Chair of the BAUS Section of Andrology.
I live in London with my wife and three children. In the little time I have free I like nothing better than a game of cricket on a warm Sunday afternoon.
