Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Shashank Gurjar at Spire include:
I am a consultant general surgeon at the Luton and Dunstable Hospital, with a specialist interest in colorectal surgery. I believe that all my patients have the right to a high quality, evidence based approach to their care.
I qualified in medicine from St Mary's Hospital, London and then completed basic surgical training in the King's College surgical rotation. I did my research at the Royal Free Hospital and University College, London. I gained specialist surgical training (colorectal surgery) in the South East Thames region. I completed my training with a senior post-CCT fellowship in Pelvic Floor surgery at John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford.
My NHS practice at Luton encompasses elective bowel cancer surgery as well as an on-call commitment for all general surgical emergencies. I am a fully trained general surgeon and offer my patients expertise in open and laparoscopic (keyhole) bowel cancer surgery and surgery for inflammatory bowel diseases (Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis). I perform laparoscopic hernia repair (groin, abdominal, incisional) and deal with all aspects of coloproctology (piles, fissures and fistula). I am an accredited endoscopist (OGD, colonoscopy & removal of polyps). My specialist training in pelvic floor dysfunction allows me to offer patients surgery for rectal prolapse and effective management of evacuatory disorders.
I have an active research interest in clinical surgery and pelvic floor dysfunction, and have published papers in peer-reviewed journals. I actively train young surgeons in keyhole surgery, as well as teaching medical students attached to Luton and Dunstable Hospital.
Special Clinical Interests: Laparoscopic colorectal surgery, pelvic floor surgery.

I am married and live with my two young children in Stanmore. I love spending as much time as possible with my children, taking them swimming and playing football. I personally enjoy all forms of sport, especially football, cricket, tennis and golf. I have a passion for travel and enjoy scuba diving when the opportunity arises. I also enjoy reading, whether medical literature or current affairs.Back to top
