Upper GI

Complex GI Centre

Which patients can benefit?

We treat patients with complex benign upper GI problems. This includes, but is not limited to:
  • Giant hiatus hernia
  • Complicated acid reflux
  • Achalasia
  • Diverticula
  • Anatomical abnormalities

We also treat patients with post-operative complications, including those who need re-operative surgery after primary upper GI surgery.

Examples of treatments and procedures

  • Revision and complex procedures

    As well as performing complex upper GI procedures, our team specialises in revisional surgery for patients where a previous procedure has either failed or can be improved.

  • Salvage and rescue surgery after severe complications

    Our highly skilled team also specialises in surgery where patients are critically ill or have suffered severe complications following an operation or interventional procedure.

  • Multidisciplinary team management of surgery

    Our clinicians and clinical teams work as a team to ensure patients receive a highly structured personalised plan, from nutrition and pre-operative preparation through to post-operative rehabilitation.

Why us?

With oversight from internationally recognised consultants, our specialists are leaders in their field with national and international reputations.

Working together in multidisciplinary teams (MDTs) with state-of-the-art diagnostic facilities, we use our clinical, diagnostic and technical expertise to pioneer cutting-edge, minimally invasive surgery techniques, offering patients the most advanced treatments available.

Our consultants continually monitor and adapt their techniques, with all procedures measured against key indicators and robust governance guidelines. That means your patient gets the highest standard of patient care and excellent clinical outcomes, regardless of the complexity of the condition.
