Mr. Marcus Reddy
Marcus Reddy is Consultant Surgeon at St George’s Hospital in London, with his specific role being that of Upper GI surgeon. He also developed the South Thames Bariatric Service which has established itself as the preferred provider for NHS bariatric surgery in the region.
Although his NHS and private practice experience spans a range surgeries, Marcus has a particular interest in laparoscopic gastric banding, sleeve gastrectomy, Roux en Y gastric bypass, laparoscopic cholecystectomy, laparoscopic and open hernia repairs.
His interests lead him to perform anti-reflux surgery for local and regional patients. He also undertakes cholecystectomy and hernia repairs as day-case (short stay) procedures when appropriate. Here he uses pioneering non-diathermy (Electrosurgical) techniques to avoid electrical conduction complications in laparoscopic surgery.
Undergraduate and post-graduate teaching is also of particular interests to Marcus. That’s why he not only lectures at The Royal College of Surgeons on emergency surgery, but coordinates the Royal College course on Core Skills in laparoscopic surgery. He has also been on European advisory panels for use of local anaesthetics, and trains surgeons in bariatric surgery in Paris.
