Professional profile:

Professor J Peter A Lodge has been a consultant surgeon at Spire Leeds Hospital since 1992, following on from training in the Yorkshire region and working at Harvard Medical School in Boston, USA.

He was awarded his Chair in Surgery in 2004 in recognition of his significant contributions to advances in surgical technique. Professor Lodge performs laparoscopic gastric bypass/weight loss surgery. He is an active member of the British Obesity and Metabolic Surgery Society.

Most recently, following intensive training in Copenhagen, Professor Peter Lodge has introduced modern Scandinavian techniques to Spire Leeds Hospital for this challenging surgery, with an emphasis on rapid recovery.

Professor Peter Lodge is recognised internationally as one of the world's most experienced liver surgeons. He has created a major hepatobiliary service, taking referrals from all around the UK and from abroad, including other major hepatobiliary centres. He provides a service for difficult liver tumours, often taking on cases considered to be inoperable elsewhere, and also deals with complex biliary strictures and injuries to the liver and bile ducts, often laparoscopically.

Professor Peter Lodge's NHS and private patient programme has grown from six hepatic resections and two bile duct cases in 1992 to 350 major resections and up to 80 complex bile duct operations each year by 2010. He is frequently asked to lecture abroad, particularly about his work on liver cancer.

As a biliary specialist Professor Peter Lodge welcomes routine gallstone cases.

In addition to a busy clinical programme he runs a laboratory, actively researching to improve results in modern surgical techniques. His recent publications can be accessed by typing in Lodge JP at
