Mr David Scott-Coombes
Consultant General Surgeon
MS, FRCS, EBSQ (Endocrine)
I have been providing a specialist service in endocrine surgery for 19 years. I am an expert in the surgical management of thyroid, parathyroid and adrenal disease. Please be certain that you wish to see a surgeon and not an endocrinologist.
I am an experienced general surgeon and undertake hernia and gallbladder operations.
To date I have undertaken over 1,000 thyroid and 1,000 parathyroid operations and more than 200 adrenal operations (mainly laparoscopically).
I am Assistant Medial Director for professional affairs at Cardiff and Vale University Health Board.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr David Scott-Coombes at Spire include:
Thyroid, parathyroid and adrenal surgery.
COVID-19 testing or antibody tests are not available as a standalone service at Spire Cardiff Hospital.
