Mr Reyad Abbadi

Consultant General, Hepatobiliary and Pancreatic Surgeon


Specialises in

I trained at King's College London and qualified in 1995. I also undertook my surgical training there and in South East London and Kent. During my training I held an academic appointment with King's College London as a Lecturer in surgery. Having spent my formative years at a leading international centre for the treatment of liver disease, I decided at an early stage to pursue a career in liver and pancreatic surgery. 

I spent my last few years of training at Addenbrooke's Hospital (Cambridge University Hospitals). This included a fellowship in Hepato-Pancreato-Biliary (HPB) surgery and a two year fellowship in solid organ transplantation, which included training in liver, pancreas, kidney and intestinal transplantation. 

I undertake all aspects of surgery of the liver, gallbladder, bile ducts and pancreas. I have specialist experience and all expertise in repairing complications of gallbladder surgery, surgery for complex abdominal tumours and sarcomas and radical resection of bile duct cancer. I also have a special interest in the surgical treatment of hepatocellular carcinoma.

This was followed by a period of training at Addenbrooke's Hospital (Cambridge University Hospitals). It included a fellowship in HPB surgery and a two-year fellowship in solid organ transplantation, which included training in liver, pancreas, kidney, and intestinal transplantation.

I held the post of Clinical Director for Theatres at University Hospital Bristol until December 2018. 

In addition to my clinical work, I am also actively researching and involved in several National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) grants. I am an Honorary Senior Lecturer at the University of Bristol.
