    Mr Stephen Warren is a Consultant General, Colorectal & Laparoscopic Surgeon based in London, UK. Following his graduation from University of London in 1986 he soon discovered an interest in laparoscopic surgery, finding that patients experienced less pain compared to traditional methods and also recovered quicker with fewer complications. By 1991 he had performed his first laparoscopic cholecystectomy and as a young consultant was awarded a national scholarship to gain experience at the renowned Cleveland Clinic in USA for a 3 month sabbatical.

    He was the recipient of a Master of Surgery MS in Surgery for his published thesis from the University of London.

    He has a specialist interest in all abdominal and bowel complaints. He is a highly skilled laparoscopic surgeon and applies his skills to a wide variety of surgical operations, both elective planned and emergencies.

    In his personal time he enjoys oil painting,  road cycling, and football.

    I went to Mr Warren after suffering from abdominal pain for sometime and was feeling anxious about my condition. His bedside manner was excellent.....right from the beginning he was extremely attentive and made me feel reassured & at ease. Mr Warren was thorough with his investigations and I felt safe under his care. If I had any worries I could get in touch without a problem. I’m very grateful for his care and professionalism.

    I was very happy with my appointment and the follow up endoscopy. I was pleased that Mr Warren agreed to give me sedation for the endoscopy despite the fact that he would much rather have only numbed my throat. The follow up letters were immediate which was excellent and his explanatory phone call was also very good.

    Mr Warren is a very good listener, and asks the right questions. He gives thorough explanations, which he repeats to make sure everything is understood by both the patient and me. He is not hurried and is very approachable with any questions. Altogether a very useful consultation for my husband, and also for taking the time to put me in the picture. And the telephone consultation was on time!

    From my first appointment in outpatients to my telephone appointment (due to covid) after surgery and a day as an inpatient, Mr Warren was friendly and professional, he explained everything really clearly and answered any questions I had fully. He completely put me at ease before the surgery and did not rush me at any of the appointments so I felt I had plenty of time to ask anything I was not sure about.

    Mr Stephen Warren and his whole team including his wonderful secretary Emma have been so amazing through my whole experience with them. Not only were they professional and efficient but were patient and kind which is especially important to me when feeling unwell. Mr Warren has treated several of my family members also and has always maintained this level of service. I really appreciate everything they have done for me and believe this contributed massively to my recovery.

    Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
    I was referred to Mr Stephen Warren by my GP following a period of two months when I had been experiencing a twinging pain in the right side of my abdomen and I then developed generalised griping pains which were accompanied by diarrhoea. I was fortunate to be able to make an appointment to see him very quickly. Mr Warren examined my abdomen thoroughly and told me that he could not feel any masses which was very reassuring. He recommended that I had a MRI scan which was performed six days later and I had an appointment two days following this when Mr Warren gave me the results. My experience of seeing Mr Warren was that he gave me complete confidence in his professionalism and knowledge and that whatever the outcome of the examinations I would be in safe hands. The result of the MRI was that there was nothing of a serious nature to concern me and Mr Warren gave me excellent advice in an understanding and caring manner.
