Background Information 
Professional profile:

Mr Ali Alhamdani is a consultant surgeon working at the Whittington NHS Trust and privately at Spire Bushey Hospital.

Mr Alhamdani was awarded his medical degree at the University of Baghdad 1996. He has had extensive training in laparoscopic
(keyhole) surgical techniques in the UK, Europe and America and has performed over 2,500 procedures to date. He currently carries out approximately 100 laparoscopic gallbladder procedures per year. He is one of the pioneers in utilising 
the new technique STRETTA, minimally invasive endoscopic procedure for the treatment of gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GORD).

Mr Alhamdani’s training in bariatric, or obesity, surgery conforms with the criteria required by The British Obesity and Metabolic 
Surgery Society (BOMSS) demonstrated by his fellowship in obesity surgery in Sunderland, UK . He provides the full range of obesity surgery procedures, including gastric bypass, gastric band, sleeve gastrectomy and revisional bariatric surgery. He also performed the new technique of gastric bypass which is the mini gastric bypass with its advantages of less post-operative problems and excellent weight loss results. He performs approximately 100 weight loss procedures per year and has a reputation for performing safe surgery with a very low complication rate and a zero mortality rate. 

Mr Alhamdani’s priority is the care of his patients. During consultation, he considers each of his patients to be central to the decision making process for the treatments suggested. The treatment he suggests depends on the patient’s lifestyle, medical history, preferences
and medical needs. All of these are taken into consideration before he recommends the available options and the final choice will rest with the patient.

Personal profile:

In 2012 Mr Alhamdani set up the first multidisciplinary approach to bariatric patient in Iraq and performed the first gastric bypass
 and sleeve gastrectomy in the Medical City in Baghdad. He continues to visit countries in the Middle East to help the progression of safe and effective bariatric surgery in that part of the world.
