Some of the principal treatments carried out by Dr Subramaniam Ramakrishnan at Spire include:
Bowel problems - polypectomy and colorectal screening, gastroenterology - abnormal liver function tests, gastroesophageal, gastrointestinal endoscopy (gastroscopy), gastrointestinal radiology, gastrointestinal tract and upper gastrointestinal endoscopy, general medicine - chronic fatigue and palliative care, scans and investigations - bone density scanning (DEXA), MRI scan, diagnostic endoscopy and CT colonoscopy, colitis, Crohn's disease, IBS, jaundice, iron deficiency anaemia, rectal bleeding, cancer of gullet, stomach, pancreas and liver.
After my basic qualification I have completed more than 15 years of practice in the field of gastroenterology and general medicine covering all aspects of this specialty. I have been practising as a consultant gastroenterologist since 2007 and have a specialist interest in all aspects of endoscopy, gastroenterology, liver and pancreatic disease. I have a keen interest in service development, teaching, training and research. As endoscopy lead I established a brand new three room endoscopy unit at Warrington Hospital and led the team to achieve national accreditation.
I am currently the lead for advancing quality programme (AQuA) for the trust and participate actively in achieving a high quality of care across both medical and surgical divisions of the hospital. As the joint lead for management of alcohol related liver disease for the AQuA programme I have streamlined guidelines for evidence based high quality management of this condition. I am a trustee at St Rocco's hospice and am contributing to the hospices quality and safety agendas. I am keen to promote all of the hospices' activities. I teach all levels of trainees, nurses and colleagues to update them of recent advances and techniques.
I am currently the lead for research in gastroenterology for the trust and we are actively recruiting to several national trials. I pride myself in being very open with patients and am keen to promote a patient centred approach to managing their illness.
I have performed over 8000 diagnostic and therapeutic procedures that includes gastroscopy, flexible sigmoidoscopy, colonoscopy and ERCP with excellent success rates and high patient satisfaction scores. I also introduced the capsule endoscopy service at Spire Cheshire in October 2015.
I am the MAC member for gastroenterology and endoscopy at Spire Cheshire Hospital. I am also a trustee at St Rocco's Hospice. In addition to my clinical commitments I am the advancing quality lead for the trust.
