Mr Nagappan Kumar

Consultant in HPB Surgery


Specialises in

I trained in London, Ontario, Canada, Birmingham and Kings College London.

My main interest is in diseases of the liver, Gallbladder, bile duct and pancreas. This includes both benign conditions and cancer.

I set up the first Liver Unit in Wales in 2002. This is now accredited as the Centre of Excellence in Wales and is the only centre offering liver surgical services to the population of South Wales.

We have audited our results regularly and the outcomes are excellent and similar to most national and international centres.
