Mr Shashank Gurjar is a consultant general surgeon at the Luton & Dunstable Hospital, with a specialist interest in colorectal surgery. He believes that all his patients have the right to a high quality, evidence based approach to their care.
Mr Gurjar qualified in medicine from St Mary's Hospital, London and then completed basic surgical training in the King's College surgical rotation. He did my research at the Royal Free Hospital & University College, London. He gained specialist surgical training (colorectal sugery) in the South-East Thames region. He completed his training with a senior post-CCT fellowship in Pelvic Floor surgery at John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford.
Mr Gurjar's NHS practice at Luton encompasses elective bowel cancel surgery as well as an on-call commitment for all general surgical emergancies. He is a fully trained general surgeon, and offers his patients expertise in open and laparoscopic (keyhole) bowel cancer surgery and surgery for inflamatory bowel diseases (crohn's disease & ulcerative colitis). He performs laparoscopic hernia repair (groin, abdominal, incisional) and deals with all aspects of coloproctology (piles, fissures & fistula). He is an accredited endoscopist (OGD, colonoscopy & removal of polyps). His specialist training in pelvic floor dysfunction allows me to offer patients surgery for rectal prolapse and effective management of evacuatory disorders.
Mr Gurjar has an active research interest in clinical surgery and pelvic floor dysfunction, and has published papers in peer-reviewed journals. He actively trains young surgeons in keyhole surgery, as well as teaching medical students attached to Luton & Dunstable Hospital.
