Mr Stephen Brearley
Consultant General Surgeon
MA, MB MChir, FRCS
I have a broad-based general surgical practice both at Spire London East Hospital, Essex and Whipps Cross University Hospital, East London - my NHS base. This includes abdominal procedures such as laparoscopic cholecystectomy and hernias, as well as a substantial amount of vascular surgery (varicose veins, arterial bypasses and aneurysms). I regularly undertake thoracoscopic sympathectomies for excessive sweating of the hands and arm pits (hyperhidrosis).
I have an interest in paediatric surgery, having trained in this field at the Birmingham Children's Hospital. I am a firm believer in outlining all of the treatment options to the patient, and involving patients in decision making about their care.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Stephen Brearley at Spire include:
Spire London East 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.
