Background Information 
Professional profile:

Michael Dworkin qualified in medicine in 1986 at the Middlesex Hospital Medical School.
After completing basic surgical training he obtained the Fellowship of the Royal College of Surgeons in 1990. This was followed by two years in full time research into the treatment of bowel cancer at the Royal Marsden Hospital, London and led to a Master of Surgery degree in 1995.

Mr Dworkin after that spent a period in higher surgical training in which he developed his interests in bowel and laparoscopic surgery. During this time Mr Dworkin worked at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, Kingston Hospital and St Marks Hospital as well as spending periods abroad studying surgery at the Mayo Clinic in USA and in Australia.

Mr Dworkin was appointed as a consultant general surgeon at Southend Hospital NHS Trust in 1998 and at the same time started his private practice at the Spire Wellesley Hospital.

Mr Dworkin's specialist areas of interest are bowel surgery and laparoscopic surgery, including hernia repair. He specialises in the investigation of bowel problems by endoscopy.

His experience in laparoscopic (keyhole) surgery has led to him being recognised as a National Trainer for Consultant Surgeons in laparoscopic surgery. Mr Dworkin also organises and runs laparoscopic courses at Anglia Ruskin University and the ICENI centre in Colchester, as well as having been invited to teach and speak at National and overseas meetings.
