Mr Robert Jones
Consultant General and Hepatobiliary Surgeon
BSc (Hons), MBChB, PhD, FRCS
"The facilities at Spire Liverpool are second to none. I love working here. The atmosphere is so supportive with the entire staff committed to each patient’s treatment."
I specialise in diseases of the gallbladder and liver. As a member of the Liverpool Hepatobiliary Unit, I perform over 50 major open and laparoscopic (keyhole) liver resections a year as well as over 100 laparoscopic gallbladder operations (cholecystectomy). I deal with a wide spectrum of benign and malignant liver and gallbladder conditions, both as direct referrals from patients (without the need to see a GP first), referrals from GPs and specialist referrals from other surgeons across the region.
I hold a prestigious NIHR Research Scholar fellowship, a national award to fund my research activities. I am also the UK's first Surgical Specialty Lead for advanced
colorectal cancer, funded by the Royal College of Surgeons and Bowel Cancer UK. I am a member of the NCRI Upper GI and Advanced Colorectal Cancer clinical studies group. I am also an executive member of the North West Surgical Trials Unit.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Robert Jones at Spire include:
MBChB / University of Manchester / 2005
Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery
Association of Upper Gastrointestinal Surgery (AUGIS)
Great Britain and Ireland Hepatopancreatobiliary Association (GBIHPBA)
