Consultant liver, biliary and general surgeon
MD, MB, BCh, PGCME, FRCS
"I am delighted to be able to offer my patients the opportunity to be treated both efficiently and to the highest standards by Spire Cardiff's dedicated team."
I have been a consultant liver and general surgeon in Cardiff since 2015 and have developed our minimally invasive (laparoscopic) biliary and liver surgery programme.
I specialise general abdominal surgery with a particular interest in liver, bile duct, gallbladder and hernia surgery.
I carry out up to 40 liver resections per year, which is a high volume in the UK. I have carried out more than 1,000 laparoscopic cholecystectomies and many hundreds of abdominal wall hernia repairs of all types.
I am the lead general surgeon in the Royal Air Force and am Clinical Director of the RAF's deployable hospital. I am Royal College of Surgeons Tutor for Cardiff and Vale, responsible for the quality of surgical training. I am Quality Improvement and Research Lead for the South Wales Major Trauma Network. I am Clinical Lead for Veterans Trauma Network Wales.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr David O'Reilly at Spire include:
COVID-19 testing or antibody tests are not available as a standalone service at Spire Cardiff Hospital.

I have four children and a labradoodle. If it were not for them, I would be a keen sailor, theatre goer and reader of history. It's a fair trade.
