Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Bandipalyam Praveen at Spire include:
General surgery, colonoscopy, coloproctology, colorectal surgery, endoscopy, gastrointestinal surgery.
I qualified in medicine in 1987 from Bangalore University, India, securing a Merit Scholarship and University Gold Medal. I then did my postgraduate surgical residency programme at the Post-Graduate Institute (PGIMER), Chandigarh, India leading to the MS degree in 1990. I later worked there as a surgical registrar for three years.
After coming to the UK, I obtained the Fellowship of all four Royal Colleges and then did my higher surgical training in London to obtain focussed training in colorectal surgery. During this period I trained at various NHS hospitals in the London area including the Royal Free Hospital, Royal London and Barts Hospital and Homerton Hospital and then in Essex at Southend, Chelmsford, and Colchester Hospitals.
During this time I was awarded the Dean’s Best Teacher award (2002) by the Royal Free UCL Medical School. In 2004 I was appointed as a consultant gastrointestinal and laparoscopic surgeon at Southend Hospital NHS Trust where my special areas of interest are colorectal and laparoscopic surgery, rectal bleeding and hernia repair. I also specialise in the investigation of bowel problems by endoscopy.
I welcome appropriate patients wishing to refer and pay for treatment themselves without the need for a GP's letter of referral.
