I am a Consultant General and Upper Gastrointestinal Surgeon at Croydon University Hospital in the National Health Service and HCA London Bridge in Central London. I am a general, upper GI, Laparoscopic and Hernia surgeon. I specialise in managing hernias of all types and the acute management of gallstones cases and have established an acute pathway for managing these cases at Croydon. I also have a particular interest in abdominal wall hernia surgery, having established the Croydon MDT for managing complex hernias. A significant proportion of my cases are performed with keyhole surgery although a tailored, patient-centered approach is my preferred method for choosing the right operation for each patient. I am the lead upper gastrointestinal (GI) surgeon at Croydon University Hospital and am dedicated to developing the service for the benefit of local patients.
I also developed the anti-reflux surgical service at Croydon and this service continues to flourish.

Oh dear! I am sorry about this. I usually try to discuss it pre-op to cover in broad terms what is and isn't advised. Reviews like this are particularly useful as it highlights where I can target the information given during consultations in future. Also, I am always ready to respond to my email address if needed. Thanks again for bringing it up.! R
Thanks for your kind words! R
Thank you so much for taking time to write this. ALL feedback is really valuable but the feedback when things haven't quite gone according to plan are the most most important...and the ones we always remember most clearly. I use them to improve where I can. All of my patients can come back to see me any time if there is a problem and there are queries to be addressed. Thanks again!
Thank you for taking the time to write this! R

Mr Thomas is a dedicated and skilled surgeon and is my number one choice when I'm looking for an Upper GI Surgeon to handle problems, relating to Gallstones, Hernias and other complex issues affecting the Upper GI tract. He's always approachable and ensures that this patients are listened to and that everyone is clear on the treatment plan being proposed. He is an exemplary presence in the operating theatre where his calm confidence ensures that the best possible care is delivered every time. Highly recommended!
Rhys is a Consultant Surgeon colleague who treats upper gastrointestinal conditions such as gallstones. He is a skilful laparoscopic surgeon who puts the care of his patients at the heart of his practice. I have seen at first hand the dedication and commitment he shows towards his patients.
