Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Paul Wilkerson at Spire include:
I have been a consultant upper GI surgeon in Bristol for three years, specialising in minimally invasive and endoscopic treatments of oesophageal and gastric disease. I work in the regional center for oesophagogastric cancer and am one of two consultants delivering the full range of endoscopic treatments for Barrett's oesophagus in this cancer network. My interest in Barrett's oesophagus has led me to coordinating a network wide focus group with the aim of standardising and improving the quality of care for patients with Barrett's oesophagus. I have worked with my colleague Andrew Hollowood in Bristol for four years and we now work as partners in Spire Bristol Hospital.
I am a general and upper GI surgeon specialising in keyhole and endoscopy-based treatments. This includes hernia surgery of any type, gall bladder surgery and surgical techniques for the treatment of reflux and achalasia.
I am the chair of the upper GI multidisciplinary team in Weston General Hospital, where I provide a specialist outreach service for upper GI cancer and complex benign upper GI conditions.
In University Hospitals Bristol (UHB), I am the lead for mortality review for the division of surgery, coordinating our learning from deaths program for surgical teams. I am also the surgical lead for Emergency Laparotomy, and with colleagues in anaesthetics, am responsible for driving quality improvement for high risk emergency surgery. Finally, I have taken on a lead role in standardising and improving the quality of care for patients with Barrett's oesophagus within UHB, and in an advisory capacity across our cancer network.
