Mr Sam Mehta
Consultant Upper Gastrointestinal Surgeon
MA, DM, FRCS
I have been a consultant surgeon here in Leeds for over six years. I am experienced in all aspects of upper GI Surgery including resectional cancer surgery and weight loss surgery.
I specialise in the following: upper gastrointestinal surgical oncology, laparoscopic (minimally invasive) gastrointestinal surgery, anti-reflux and achalasia surgery, weight loss surgery (gastric band, sleeve gastrectomy and gastric bypass), gallstones removal, gallbladder disease, hernia surgery and all aspects of general surgery including local anaesthetic procedures and toenail surgery.
I have been working in the private sector for over five years. My private practice reflects my NHS practice.
I have published widely in peer reviewed journals and I was awarded a higher medical degree through Oxford University in 2008. I publish widely in all aspects of oesophago-gastric surgical oncology and am a reviewer for the Annals of the Royal College of Surgeon.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Sam Mehta at Spire include:

I usually spend most of my spare time in my ‘Dad Taxi’, ferrying our three children around to their various parties, play dates and sporting activities! I also enjoy keeping fit at my local gym and travelling with my family, exploring European cities and sampling the fine wines their locals have to offer.
