Dr Muftah Eltumi
MBBS, MSc, PhD, FRCP, FRCPCH
I am a Consultant Paediatrician and an accredited paediatric endoscopist. I have over 30 years experience in Paediatric Medicine and have held many notable clinical positions and published numerous original articles.
I am widely recognised as one of the UK’s leading Paediatric Gastroenterologists. I am regarded as an expert in the management of gastrointestinal disorders in children.
At the start of my career I joined the team of the late Professor Alex Mowat in the Paediatric Unit at Kings College Hospital working closely with children with liver disease. This team developed a state of the art unit for children with liver disorders, and was involved in the pioneering of the British programme for children’s liver transplant in the UK in the 1980s. In this Unit, I worked as a clinical fellow and completed my Masters degree where my thesis explored imaging techniques for children with prolonged jaundice. This resulted in the development of an original and unique imaging technique (Eltumi et al; Arch.Dis.Child 1984). In 1987, I became a member of the Royal College of Physicians, London.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Dr Muftah Eltumi at Spire include:
