    Background Information 
    Professional profile:

    David Khoo is a consultant surgeon at Spire Hartswood private hospital in Brentwood, Essex, offering private gastrointestinal surgery and general surgery in our clean and private hospital.

    Mr Khoo was appointed a consultant in 1996 at Barking, Havering and Redbridge University Hospitals NHS Trust. He has held the post of clinical director for surgery at The Trust and is currently the clinical director for gastroenterology.

    David Khoo is experienced in all areas of general surgery. However, his main interests lie in laparoscopic (keyhole) surgery and surgery of the gut. Mr Khoo was among the first surgeons to take up laparoscopic surgery; he was doing as much as possible laparoscopically in the pioneering days of laparoscopy in the UK around 1991. He now concentrates his time on the surgery of the gut, particularly the foregut (upper gastrointestinal surgery). He has a particular interest in surgery for gastrointestinal cancer.

    In his private practice at Spire Hartswood Hospital, David Khoo aims to offer efficient and rapid diagnosis of gastrointestinal conditions, using appropriate investigations such as endoscopy and performs weight loss surgery procedures including gastric band, sleeve and bypass surgery.

    In his NHS practice at Queen’s Hospital in Romford, Essex, David Khoo has developed local services for laparoscopic (keyhole) surgery, and advanced complex laparoscopic surgery, as well as diagnostic services such as rectal bleeding clinics. Much of his work involves the most difficult forms of laparoscopic surgery eg oesophagogastrectomy, hiatus hernia and reflux surgery, splenectomy, colon resection and biliary surgery.

    Mr Khoo is known for his involvement in the training of junior surgeons and was the 2009 winner of the prestigious “Silver Scalpel” award from the Association of Surgeons in Training (ASIT).  He has published papers on subjects such as laparoscopic common bile duct exploration for gallstones and Barrett’s oesophagus.
