Mr. R. A. Miller MS FRCS FRGS

Consultant Urological Surgeon

Consulting from his extensive medico-legal practice at Highgate Hospital, London with 29 years experience at Consultant level, Ron Miller is registered as an Expert Witness with the Law Society Register and The Expert Witness Directory. He acts on behalf of the defendant, claimant and as a single joint expert witness. Mr. Ron Miller qualiďŹ ed in 1974 and therefore holds unique experience of major open urological surgery, as well as extensive experience of endoscopic and minimally invasive techniques of endourology many of which he pioneered more than 20 years ago.

In the last 10 years and as his medico-legal practice has evolved, Mr. Miller has developed his interest in urological pain syndromes such as painful bladder syndrome, urethral syndrome, prostatitis, pelvic pain of a urological origin and chronic testicular pain.

During his time working in the NHS, Mr. Miller has also been interested in medico-legal work. He now attends court 3-4 times per year and currently writes over 100 reports a year mainly on clinical negligence but also in cases of major accidental injury. Aside from obvious urological cases resulting in a patient losing a testicle or kidney, Mr. Miller has a special interest in some cases that are not so obvious such as a hernia operation leading to the testicle being affected and the high value urology problems associated with spinal injury.

In the last three years, Ron Miller has restricted his NHS work to The Choose and Book System following his resignation from his position as Head of Department at The Whittington Hospital in 2012. He now divides his time between clinical and medico-legal practice in a 50:50 split; providing a more personalised service at the private hospitals where he works.

A BAUS approved and trained medico-legal expert, Ron Miller spent 25 years dealing with major surgical complications following gynaecological surgery – including perforated bladder, ďŹ stulae, ureteric damage.

As well as his professional career, Mr. Miller has lectured on medico-legal urological practice as well as attended the relevant courses. He has an extensive academic history: 2 books, 140 papers, 2 journal supplements, and more than 300 national/international presentations, supervision of 8 post graduate degrees and the production of 27 book chapters.
