Medals of Richard Turner Warwick

Pioneering functional & reconstructive urologist

Richard Turner Warwick, known as RTW, trained at Oriel College, Oxford and the Middlesex Hospital. He was captain of the Oxford crew that won the Varsity Boat Race in 1946.

His passion was seeing how things worked, and he became fascinated with the correlation between structure and function of the body. This led him to become a pioneer in the functional reconstruction of the lower urinary tract. He was particularly famous for his work with fistulae, strictures and continence, and he led the team that, in effect, invented video-urodynamics.
