I am a Consultant Colorectal and General Surgeon at Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge, being appointed to this post in 2007.
My main clinical interests are in minimally invasive treatments. These include the treatment of haemorrhoids (including outpatient treatments, radiofrequency ablation (Rafaelo) and doppler-guided THD/HALO), and the use of laparoscopic (keyhole) surgery for bowel cancer, inflammatory bowel disease (Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis) and diverticular disease.
I offer investigation and treatment for rectal bleeding and change in bowel habit, bowel cancer screening/colonoscopy, and treatments for other conditions affecting the "bottom" including anal abscess, fistula, fissure, etc. I provide surgery for groin and abdominal wall hernias, and am a member of the Cambridge Bowel Clinic.
I am Deputy Medical Director at Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, an Associate Lecturer at the University of Cambridge and Director of Studies and a Bye-Fellow at Downing College, Cambridge. I am Vice President of The Royal Society of Medicine Section of Coloproctology, and recent member of Executive Council at The Association of Coloproctology of Great Britain and Ireland.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Justin Davies at Spire include:
COVID-19 testing or antibody tests are not available as a standalone service at Spire Cambridge Lea Hospital.

I maintain an active research programme, particularly in relation to the outcomes of surgery for colorectal cancer, anal cancer, inflammatory bowel disease and minimally invasive haemorrhoid treatments. I continue to audit my work, presenting at national and international meetings. In addition, I publish regularly in peer-review journals, am the co-editor of a book published by Cambridge University Press in 2014 entitled "A Surgeon's Guide to Anaesthesia and Peri-operative Care" and am often invited to lecture both in the UK and abroad.
My main interests have always been sporting, particularly rugby union. I won my Cambridge Blue in 1994, playing scrum-half for the winning Cambridge University side in the Varsity Match at Twickenham. I made over 50 appearances for The Blues, and won LX Club Colours and Under 21 Colours, captaining all sides including The Blues. At school, I represented England Schools 18 Group.
I now enjoy coaching junior rugby, playing golf as a member at Gog Magog Golf Club and spending time with my wife and two sons.
