Mr Paul Goldsmith
Consultant General and Upper GI Surgeon
"I am very excited to be joining the consultant body at Spire Manchester Hospital along with Manchester Surgical Clinic, as we bring a new way to manage general surgical conditions in the North West."
I am a Consultant General Surgeon with a specialist interest in upper GI surgery at Manchester Foundation Trust. I was appointed in 2017.
I graduated from The University of Leeds and subsequently trained in Yorkshire, where I attained an MD in ‘1H NMR spectrometric identification of biomarkers in renal transplantation’. I moved to Manchester for higher surgical training and then spent a period of time in The Netherlands. I have over 30 publications and have presented my work nationally and internationally.
Within my current consultant role, I am a general surgical lead clinician for the national emergency laparotomy audit and lead for frailty within general surgery, where I am heading up an NHS England pilot study for care of patients undergoing abdominal operations with underlying co-morbidities. I take an active role in undergraduate teaching.
I cover all aspects of general and urgent surgery, with a subspecialty interest in reflux, LINX, oesophageal dysmotility, dysphagia, hernia – including hiatus, incisional, epigastric/ventral and groin, gallstones and upper GI endoscopy.
I practice at Spire Manchester Hospital as well as their clinic in Hale, Cheshire.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Paul Goldsmith at Spire include:
Spire Manchester 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.
