    About

    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.

    To make an appointment to see me please call Simone Caggiano or Caroline Godfrey on 07738 622 799 / 020 3488 2920 or email info@mcs-london.co.uk
