    About

    Alastair Windsor trained at St Mary’s Hospital in London. Having spent three years in research at the Medical College of Virginia, USA, he returned as Lecturer and then Senior Lecturer and Honorary Consultant Surgeon to the Academic Surgical Unit at St James’ University Hospital, Leeds.

    He has now moved to join the staff as Consultant Surgeon to University College Hospital London, and Honorary Senior Lecturer at the University College London.

    He is considered a leader in the field of colorectal surgery and has a national and international reputation for his clinical practice. He has a particular focus and expertise in inflammatory bowel disease as well as managing complex abdominal wall hernias. He also maintains a busy clinical practice in the broader aspects of colorectal surgery including minimal access surgery or key hole surgery, endoscopy, colorectal cancer, diverticular disease and proctology (haemorrhoids, fistula, fissure etc).

    Mr Windosr was included in the Daily Mail's list of top doctors, for his expertise in inflammatory bowel disease. He was also included in Tatler's list of best private doctors.

    It is important that HCA is transparent about our relationship with those doctors who provide us with clinical guidance on delivering the best possible care to patients and operating our hospitals safely and efficiently. We set out here some of the ways in which we work together and the amount we pay this doctor for such services.

    Explanation

    It is difficult to describe my experience of the care provided by Mr Windsor and his exceptional team because it is such a personal thing. However, Al (he doesn't remain "Mr Windsor" for long!) is an incredibly smart, talented and creative surgeon. His willingness to take on a difficult case, and to deal with it in a way that made me feel listened to, understood, part of the team, created a relaxing environment within which to have respectful dialogue, and to develop a plan. His surgical skills are second to none, and his ability to adapt, and literally think on his feet, have made a positive, life-changing difference to me. I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Mr Windsor. He and his team have consistently provided the most professional, patient-centred care that I have ever experienced and I am hugely grateful to the whole team for their compassion...and sense of humour, something that can so often be lacking in difficult situations.
