I have been a Consultant Gastroenterologist and Hepatologist for over seven years, and I have a special interest in advanced and therapeutic endoscopy, including complex polypectomy and biliary disease. I am also a bowel cancer screening accredited colonoscopist.
I specialise in general gastroenterology and liver disease. I see patients with functional disorders (like irritable bowel syndrome, functional dyspepsia), acid reflux, inflammatory bowel disease (Crohn`s disease and ulcerative colitis) and patients with all aspects related to liver diseases. I believe in minimally invasive approach to investigate patients with functional disorders, and utilising a multidisciplinary style to treat them by involving dietitians and psychologists to manage their conditions.
I have developed a special interest in performing complex therapeutic endoscopy, this includes performing EMR, ESD and full thickness resection to resect complex and challenging polyps, also doing ERCP to treat biliary conditions like stones and bile duct strictures, and utilising endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) to aid reaching diagnosis and provide treatment for cases related to bile duct stones. I have trained in reading wireless capsule study for small bowel, and I perform therapeutic upper GI endoscopy, like polypectomy and dilation.
I have gained a huge experience in endoscopic procedures, I have done more than 3,000 colonoscopies, more than 3,000 OGDs and more than 600 ERCPs and 600 EUS procedures.
I have worked and trained in multiple centres in the UK including King's College Hospital, Leeds Teaching Hospitals, Norfolk and Norwich University Hospitals and Coventry and Warwickshire University Hospitals. I have also received formal training in performing ESD and I have developed links with other centres to discuss and manage complex cases. I aim to learn and develop new skills in my trust and stay up to date with latest endoscopic innovations like endoscopic suturing and bariatric endoscopy.
I have been trust endoscopy governance and audit lead since 2019. As part of this role, I work with the endoscopy lead and other members of the governance tam to ensure our endoscopy unit performance parameters are above the required national level, I supervise many audits related to our endoscopy practice and make sure our patients feedback and concerns are addressed in a timely manner. I have contributed to multiple endoscopy and hepatology related studies and I am a principle and sub-principle investigator to ongoing research studies in my department.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Dr Zeino Zeino at Spire include:
