Dr Bowes originally hails from South Africa, having emigrated with his young family in 2008 to pursue world-class Urological training in Australia. He completed his Urology training in Brisbane, and this included selection for subspecialty training in robotic surgery with the Queensland Robotic Surgery Unit at Greenslopes Private Hospital.
Dr Bowes has expertise encompassing an extensive range of adult urological conditions, with a focus on modern, minimally invasive treatments and patient-centred care. He has particular interest in the management of prostate and kidney malignancies, as well as benign conditions such as BPH and urinary stone disease. He has also conducted research on outcomes of robotic prostate cancer surgery, and is a senior lecturer with the University of Queensland’s Faculty of Medicine. He is a full member of the Urological Society of Australia and New Zealand, and a fellow of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons.
Upon completion of his specialty training, Dr Bowes was appointed as staff specialist at Redcliffe Hospital, and is engaged in private practice at Holy Spirit Northside Private Hospital, where he joins a team of experienced colleagues and offers a comprehensive, multidisciplinary Urology service. This service is now being extended to the Montserrat Day Hospitals Group at Samford Road.
