Dr Prem Premchand
MBBS, MD, FRCP
I am a Consultant Gastroenterologist at Spire Hartswood private hospital in Brentwood, Essex, offering private gastroenterology care in our clean and comfortable hospital.
I have performed over 10,000 colonoscopies and 15,000 gastroscopies and have one of the largest series of colonic stent placement in the UK.
I set up the UK's first white cell apheresis service for refractory inflammatory bowel disease attracting referrals nationally and internationally. I qualified from Kerala University, India and started training in the UK in 1994, completing my gastroenterology specialist training at St Thomas Hospital London in 2005.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Dr Prem Premchand at Spire include:
Gastrointestinal intervention in upper and lower gastrointestinal tract, sigmoidoscopy, colonoscopy, ERCP, pancreato-biliary interventions, colonic stents including biodegradable stents, enteroscopy, white cell apheresis (WCA) for inflammatory bowel disease, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).
COVID-19 testing or antibody tests are not available as a standalone service at Spire Hartswood Hospital.
