MB BS, MSc, PhD, FCPS, FRCS (Glasg), FRCS (Gen Surg), FASCRS, FST
I am a Specialist Colorectal Surgeon with a comprehensive training in general, colorectal laparoscopic and robotic surgery. My main areas of interest are bowel cancer, robotic surgery, hernia surgery, haemorrhoids treatment and surgical treatment of bowel disorders.
I graduated in 1996 and specialised in general surgery. I became a fellow of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons Glasgow in 2002. I completed my specialist registrar training in colorectal surgery in Wessex. I learned complex pelvic and rectal cancer surgery while working with Professor Heald at Basingstoke. My specialist colorectal training included the UK National Laparoscopic Fellowship at Colchester in 2007, where I received training from Professor Roger Motson in advanced laparoscopic pelvic surgery. Later on I was awarded a travelling clinical fellowship at Mayo Clinic Rochester (US) and travelled to Seoul, Republic of Korea for advanced robotic surgery training.
I am currently appointed as a consultant surgeon at Portsmouth Hospitals University NHS Trust, where I treat a wide range of disorders affecting the small intestine, colon and rectum.
At Portsmouth I am actively involved in medical education, clinical training and research with supervision of trainees for higher degrees at the university of Portsmouth, where I am also appointed as Professor of Surgery, Faculty of Science, the University of Portsmouth.
I teach regularly on a variety of courses both nationally and internationally including basic surgical skills, advanced laparoscopic skills, robotic surgery, trauma surgery and coloproctological courses. I have been a national trainer for consultants training in laparoscopic colorectal surgery (LapCo) - a programme run by the Department of Health for promotion of training in keyhole bowel cancer surgery. I am also a European trainer in robotic surgery and have trained a large number of surgeons in robotics across Europe.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Professor Jim Khan at Spire include:
COVID-19 testing or antibody tests are not available as a standalone service at Spire Portsmouth Hospital.
I am a keen cricketer and play regularly for a local club in New Forest. I also enjoy playing badminton, golf and running. My wife is a doctor and we have two young children.
