Mr Thomas Armstrong
Consultant Hepatobiliary and General Surgeon
PhD, FRCSEd (Gen)
I graduated from Nottingham University in 1995. I moved to Wessex soon after and completed my training in general surgery in hospitals around the region.
I have always been interested in diseases of the liver, pancreas, gallbladder and bile duct. I developed my specialty interst in this field by working in pioneering liver and pancreatic surgical units in England and Australia. The high standards of care that I helped provide in these units are entrenched in my surgical practice.
I have always taken an active role in research alongside my clinical commitments. My main interest is in the biology of pancreatic cancer and I was awarded a PhD in 2004 for reasearch in this field. I have also published several research papers that contribute to the understanding of physiological changes associated with liver and pancreatic surgery.
I am a member of a team of five surgeons in Southampton that undertake liver and pancreatic surgery for the whole South Coast region (Dorset, Hampshire and Channel Islands).
Spire Southampton 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.
