Professor Frydenberg is President of the Urological Society of Australia and New Zealand, an author and co-author of over 130 peer reviewed journal articles, lecturer, active researcher and public speaker. He is an advocate of raising awareness for men's health issues, in particular, prostate cancer.
"It is my career and passion to look after men with serious illnesses such as prostate cancer, as well as a variety of other potential health issues such as depression and diabetes to name a few."
"It is immensely satisfying curing men of serious diseases such as prostate cancer, however even more satisfying if one can educate men to ensure they look after themselves, get regular check ups and detect any issues as early as possible to obtain the best outcomes," said Professor Frydenberg.
Professor Frydenberg said that working with charitable organisations, seeing them fund and promote research into prostate cancer education and treatments has been rewarding.
"It is humbling to have received the award when there are so many talented clinicians, researchers and consumers totally devoted to the cause."
"I honour them with the award, as well as all the patients who have trusted their care to me."
