    About

    Mr Christopher Chan is a Consultant General and Colorectal Surgeon based at Barts NHS Trust. He sees patients privately at The Lister Hospital and The Harley Street Clinic, where he is also the lead colorectal surgeon for The Endometriosis Centre.

    Mr Chan graduated from Guy’s and St Thomas’ Medical School in 1991 and then undertook surgical training in Cambridge and London, He was awarded an MRC Clinical Fellowship for work on pelvic floor dysfunction, which culminatd in a PhD. He continued with further sub-specialist colorectal training fellowships, which took place in Sydney, Paris and St Mark’s Hospital in Harrow. 

    He has wide experience in elective and emergency surgery and expertise in open, laparoscopic and robotic techniques, specifically with complex colorectal diseases. These include Colorectal Cancer, Crohn’s Disease, Ulcerative Colitis, Enterocutaneous Fistula, Intestinal Failure, Complex Anal Fistula, Anorectal and Pelvic Floor Problems, such as incontinence, evacuatory difficulty and constipation, and pelvic floor reconstruction. 

    His research interests include investigating new techniques for treating faecal incontinence and pelvic floor dysfunction, ultra-low sphincter preserving resections and inflammatory bowel disease. In addition to his clinical work, Mr Chan is active in teaching and lecturing at all levels, including MBBS, MRCA and Intercollegiate FRCS examinations. He also speaks at national and international conferences.

    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.

    I worked with Mr Chan during the last few months and we took care of a few colorectal cancer patients together. I found Mr Chan an exceptional surgeon, who's easily approachable and excellent to the patients. Mr Chan undertook de-bulking surgery for a patient, who was left with no treatment options due to recurrent bowel obstruction- amazingly, this patient was able to have chemotherapy and now seems to be benefiting from the treatment. I would highly recommend Mr Christopher for simple or complicated bowel cancer patients, both in early stage or metastatic settings.
