Dr Ken Trimble
MB BCh, BAO, MD, FRCP (Edin)
I qualified in Medicine in Dublin, with specialist training in Dublin, London and Edinburgh. I have been a Consultant specialist in Gastroenterology since 1995, working initially in Fife and now at the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh and Spire Edinburgh Hospitals.
I have broad experience in general Gastroenterology and specialist expertise in diagnostic and therapeutic upper GI endoscopy, colonoscopy and enteroscopy. I have a subspecialty interest in oesophageal disorders, irritable bowel syndrome and other disorders of the gut nervous system, including expertise in oesophageal physiology techniques.
I work in Spire Shawfair Park's endoscopy suite which holds JAG accreditation.
I am a member of the British Society of Gastroenterology, and I am Professional Lead for Gastroenterology at the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Dr Ken Trimble at Spire include:
Spire Edinburgh Hospitals Murrayfield and Shawfair Park is only able to provide Covid-19 tests to patients undergoing surgery at our hospital. Covid-19 testing or antibody tests are not available as a standalone service.
