Some of the principal treatments carried out by Dr Her-Hsin Tsai at Spire include:
Bowel disease, colonoscopy, eating disorders, endoscopy, sigmoidoscopy and biopsy.
I qualified from Aberdeen University (MB ChB 1983) and worked as a junior doctor in Aberdeen and Glasgow hospitals before taking up a research appointment in Liverpool University. I submitted a doctoral thesis on inflammatory bowel disease which was awarded honours (MD 1991). A further spell of clinical training as senior registrar in Liverpool followed and I was appointed Consultant Physician and Gastroenterologist at Castle Hill hospital (Hull and East Yorkshire NHS Trust) in 1993. I have an interest in all aspects of clinical gastroenterology and hepatology and expertise in endoscopic procedures for the diagnosis and treatment of gastrointestinal and liver diseases.
I have published over 80 papers, several chapters in books, and a textbook of gastroenterology. I was elected fellow of the Royal College of Physicians in 1998 and also a fellow of the European Board of Gastroenterology.
Appropriate referrals include patients with abdominal pains, indigestion, nausea, vomiting, jaundice, diarrhoea or constipation, bleeding or changes in the bowel. Referrals may only be made through the general practitioner. I will accept direct GP referrals for endoscopy. For further patient information about stomach and bowel disorders and about endoscopy visit the British Digestive Disorders Foundation website.

I am a keen mountaineer and skier. I have climbed all the Scottish "Munroes" and many of the highest Alpine peaks including the Materhorn and Mont Blanc. I love music and opera and play the saxophone badly and may be found on a squeaky top end of a viol quartet. I sing with the Hull Bach Choir. I live in Beverley and are a member of the Beverley Minster congregation.Back to top
