Personal profile

Mr Al-Dabbagh started working as a Consultant General Surgeon at Trafford General Hospital in 2002 and completed higher general surgical training in the Yorkshire region. His main interest is in hernia surgery, particularly inguinal hernia. He published an original paper in 2002 in the journal of Surgical and Radiological Anatomy about the anatomical variations of the sensory nerves during inguinal hernia surgery and how best to avoid damaging them during surgery.

Mr Al-Dabbagh has shifted to the keyhole method of repairing most inguinal hernias (the laparoscopic totally extraperitoneal method), which he believes is the gold standard method of repair. This is also done largely as a day surgery procedure. Having visited several GP practices in 2006, Mr Al-Dabbagh implemented for the first time in Trafford General Hospital, a pathway protocol of same-day discharge of patients following keyhole (laparoscopic) removal of the gall bladder.

Mr Al-Dabbagh also regularly performs all types of surgery for thyroid swellings, including thyroid cancer.
