As a consultant gastroenterologist at Spire Hartswood Hospital in Brentwood, Dr Munuswamy treats patients with gastrointestinal problems, liver disease, inflammatory bowel disease and patients with complex nutrition requirements. He also uses endoscopic procedures to treat patients with acute gastro-intestinal bleeding.
Dr Pushpakaran Munuswamy trained in gastroenterology and liver diseases at King’s College Hospital, London, as part of the South East Thames rotation. He has experience in managing a wide range of complex, acute and chronic conditions.
Patient safety is central to Dr Munuswamy’s clinical practice, together with a gentle, kind, considerate and ‘listening’ approach to patient care. He takes time to discuss and involve patients in the decision process for managing their condition.
I am interested in innovation and have developed a new design of naso-gastric tube. This design was given a highly commended prize in the competition in East of England region. I believe proper design is essential to all the services we develop and a good design is capable of solving most problems in life.
I have a young family and it is amazing to see them develop.
I play badminton, am interested to learn music and relax by meditation. I also participate in charity events.
