Mr Andrew Davies
Consultant General Surgeon
BSc, MBChB, MSc, MD, FRCS
I am a consultant surgeon specialising in general, laparoscopic (keyhole) and upper gastro-intestinal surgery for patients in London, Hampshire and Surrey. I have a specialist interest in surgery for abdominal hernias, gallstones and acid reflux including hiatus hernia repair, fundoplication and the Linx procedure. I also perform endoscopy to investigate upper gastro-intestinal symptoms and perform a high volume of oesophageal and gastric cancer operations. I have been a Consultant for over ten years at Guy’s & St Thomas’ in London which is one of the largest upper gastro-intestinal surgical units in the UK, regularly performing complex benign and cancer operations.
I was trained in some of the leading teaching hospitals in London, including King’s College liver unit, the Royal Marsden and St Thomas’. I have a particular interest in minimally invasive (keyhole) surgery and was awarded two prestigious laparoscopic surgery fellowships to Pittsburgh, USA and Pretoria, South Africa.
I am an Associate Professor of Surgery at King’s College London and the Chief Investigator of a number of on-going clinical trials examining exercise prior to major surgery and symptom management after cancer surgery. I have also initiated a number of international research collaborations that include participating units from the UK and USA. I have published widely in the field of upper GI surgery, am a regular speaker at international conferences and am on the editorial board for the British Journal of Surgery.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Andrew Davies at Spire include:
