Dr Ritwik Banerjee
MBBS, MD, FRCP
I graduated in Calcutta, India in 1992 and came to UK for higher training. Within two years I successfully cleared his professional exams and started my specialty training in the Cambridge rotation. During my training years, I did my research for an MD on hormonal effects of weight loss and exercise. I started my Consultant job at the Luton & Dunstable Hospital in November 2002. Between 2008-2009, I went to India to work within the health services in India.
Currently I am heavily involved in junior doctor training, working towards preparing the ‘doctors of the future’ and examining for the Final MB and for MRCP exams. I have continued to develop the endocrine service at his NHS hospital, being active in setting up a Diabetes Foot Care and Adolescent Endocrine service. I have presented locally and nationally in meetings and am active in research aspects of endocrinology.
Although I provide a specialist opinion on all endocrine problems, I find it rewarding to be able to help patients with non-specific symptoms, unexplained tiredness, uncontrolled hypertension, and electrolyte imbalances – areas that are not commonly dealt with. My liaison work with dietetics helps me to treat weight disorders and diabetes.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Dr Ritwik Banerjee at Spire include:
