He has gained this from his work in top UK centres and with world-renowned scientists, surgeons and interventional radiologists. With his background in mechanical engineering, physics and mathematics, Mr Jibawi has special experience in how to choose the most appropriate graft design that fits complex anatomy and that provides the best immediate and long term outcome.

    Mr Jibawi is also a specialist in hernia surgery, both open and laparoscopic. He performs lumps and bumps surgery, with a special attention to the aesthetic and functional aspects of this surgery. 

    Mr Jibawi completed his undergraduate medical education at the University of Damascus in Syria, with distinctions in physiology and anatomy. Following that, he finished higher specialist training in general, trauma and laparoscopic surgery before extending his training in the UK. Mr Jibawi joined approved SpR training programmes in General and Vascular surgeryin the East Midlands Deanery (University of Leicester), and has had additional training within All Wales Deanery and Kent, Surrey and Sussex (KSS) Deaneries. Finally, he completed a two-year fellowship in vascular and endovascular surgery at the Royal Free Hospital NHS Foundation Trust and the University College London Hospital and received his FRCS (General/Vascular) in 2013.

    My experience with Mr Jibawi was great from the first consultation, the surgery itself and the aftercare. I had a varicose veins surgery on both of my legs and everything went very smoothly. I am so happy with the results. I am so thankful to Mr Jibawi for giving me that lightness in my legs, pain free and getting back my confidence. Mr Jibawi is a great surgeon and very professional. Thank you Mr Jibawi for looking after me throughout the whole process.

    My overall experience was quite a positive one. For example , on the day I was feeling quite nervous and scared that everything wouldn't work out but he calmed me down and assured me that everything would be okay and I should stop stressing myself. Immediately after that I felt like a huge weight was lifted off my shoulders. He made me feel calm and relaxed.Mr Abdullah Jibawi helped me to overcome my nerves and i am so grateful that he was there because if he wasn't there I would have worked myself into a state. It gives me a sense of relief that there are people like Mr Abdullah Jibawi still around to comfort people when they feel uneasy. Thank you so much Mr Abdullah Jibaw for everything you done for me that day. I am so grateful and because of you I was able to have the surgery I required so thank you.

    Thorough, personable, professional and so knowledgeable. Diagnosis 1/2 done immediately with plan in place for 2/2. After many, many years of problems he diagnosed and made a plan for me in 30 minutes. It is amazing what seeing a true specialist can do and I feel relieved knowing I’m not just being “silly” or imagining things. Thank you!

    Thank you for your kind comments. I am so glad to be able to put all years of experience behind finding out the very root cause of your problem. Half of this was the careful listening I learnt to do, and certainly your ability to describe your complaint clearly, knowing that someone is actively listening to you. It is a pleasure to take care of you anytime.
