Mr Jim Khan
Consultant Colorectal Surgeon
MB BS, MSc, FCPS (Surg), FRCS (Glasg), FRCS (Gen Surg)
I am a Specialist Colorectal Surgeon with a comprehensive training in general, colorectal and laparoscopic surgery. I am currently appointed as a consultant colorectal and laparoscopic surgeon at Portsmouth Hospitals NHS Trust, where I treat a wide range of disorders affecting the small intestine, colon and rectum.
At Portsmouth I am actively involved in medical education and clinical training. I am working in collaboration with Portsmouth University on a few research projects and supervise higher degree courses.
I train on a variety of courses both nationally and internationally including basic surgical skills, laparoscopic skills, ATLS, TEMS, laparoscopic colorectal surgery and coloproctology courses. I have been a national trainer for consultants training in laparoscopic colorectal surgery (LapCo) - a programme run by the Department of Health for promotion of training in keyhole bowel cancer surgery.
I graduated in 1996 and specialised in general surgery. I became a fellow of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons Glasgow in 2002. I completed my specialist registrar training in colorectal surgery in Wessex. I learned complex pelvic and rectal cancer surgery while working with Professor Heald at Basingstoke. My specialist colorectal training included the UK National Laparoscopic Fellowship at Colchester in 2007, where I received training from Professor Roger Motson in advanced laparoscopic pelvic surgery. Later on I was awarded a travelling clinical fellowship at Mayo Clinic Rochester (US).
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Jim Khan at Spire include:
