I have more than 20 years service in the NHS, almost all of it in the surgical field. My particular interest is in breast surgery, hernia repair, laparoscopic gall bladder surgery and day case surgery.
I have held various posts at different hospitals as a trainee surgeon but mainly in Hull, London and Barnsley. Since December 1999 I have held a full time consultant post in surgery at Hull and East Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust.
I have done clinical research in the field of breast cancer and presented papers at various national and internal conferences whilst working in the Academic Unit at the University of Hull.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Tapan Mahapatra at Spire include:
