Mr Andy Cockbain
Consultant Upper Gastrointestinal and Bariatric Surgeon
BSc, MBChB, MD, PGCert HCL, FRCS
I am a Consultant General and Upper GI Surgeon at Spire Leeds Hospital and specialise in laparoscopic (keyhole) surgery for gallstones, reflux disease, achalasia, weight loss surgery, hernias and oesophageal and gastric cancer.
I trained at Leeds University, and completed advanced surgical training in Leeds, Sheffield and Adelaide, Australia. I returned to the UK and was appointed as a consultant in 2019.
I believe in delivering high-quality, patient-centred care. I have a particular interest in improving how we deliver care to provide a better patient-experience and outcome. My work on this has been recognised by the NHS Leadership Academy. Safe surgery, and quality-of-life after surgery are my guiding principles.
I have published over 45 peer-reviewed publications and book chapters and have presented my work nationally and internationally. I am actively involved in a number of large national trials to improve patient care.
I look forward to meeting you at Spire Leeds to discuss your care. I will take the time to discuss different treatments and help you to make the choices best suited to your individual needs.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Andy Cockbain at Spire include:
Spire Leeds Hospital 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.
