Mr Bassam Alkari graduated from Damascus University (Syria) in 1994 which was then followed by post-graduate training. He undertook his surgical training in the Midlands and North West of England before being appointed as a Consultant Surgeon in Aberdeen in 2008.

Mr Alkari specialises in complex liver, pancreas and bile duct diseases, including gallbladder disease, with a specialist interest in advanced laparoscopic surgical techniques.

He played a big role in the introduction of the Suspected Gallbladder Clinic at BMI Albyn Hospital. This clinic allows for referred patients to be seen by the surgeon, undergo the relevant diagnostic testing, go through a pre-assessment, and confirm a date for surgery, all within the same appointment. This service is made up of a multi-disciplinary team and led by a team of consultants including Mr Alkari, General Surgeon Professor Irfan Ahmed and Specialist Anaesthetist Dr Gwen Johnston.

Mr Alkari holds an academic appointment at the University of Aberdeen as a senior lecturer and is an examiner for the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh. He is heavily involved in the teaching, the regular assessment and examination of undergraduate and postgraduate students. Furthermore, he holds regular lectures at the Suttie Centre on dealing with biliary and pancreatic surgery.
