He has expertise in robotic prostatectomy for early prostate cancer, and surgery for advanced testis cancer.
Professor Rajan studied physiology and medicine at Cambridge University, and completed junior surgical and senior urological residencies in Edinburgh and Glasgow, respectively. He undertook his PhD in prostate cancer biology at Newcastle University, and post-doctoral research at the CR-UK Beatson Institute and University of Glasgow.
