Personal profile

Mr Macutkiewicz is a Consultant General and Hepato-Pancreatico-Biliary (HPB) Surgeon at Manchester Royal Infirmary and BMI Alexandra Hospital, Cheadle.

He graduated with a First Class Honours degree in Biochemistry, and then went on to graduate with Honours in Medicine from the University of Manchester in 2000. He completed a period of research and was awarded a Doctorate of Medicine for my thesis in 2008. He completed his higher surgical training in the North Western Deanery and has worked in London, Cambridge, Nottingham and Manchester before taking up a Consultant position at St James’s University Hospital in Leeds where he practiced advanced pancreatic, gallbladder and bile duct surgery for five years.  He returned to Manchester in August 2018 to take up a Consultant post at Manchester University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.

He provides elective and emergency general surgery as well as being part of the regional HPB unit specialising in the investigation and management of liver and pancreatic tumours, pancreatitis and gallbladder diseases. He has a special interest in advanced laparoscopic (keyhole) surgery of pancreas, gallbladder and bile duct, the investigation and management of abdominal pains, open and laparoscopic pancreatic and liver surgery and open and laparoscopic hernia surgery.

Furthermore, he has a great interest in day-case gallbladder surgery and improving patient satisfaction whilst in hospital. His other passion is Medical Education; he thoroughly enjoys training the doctors of tomorrow and have a PhD student researching on the pancreas. Moreover, he is also involved in change management and National Quality Improvement projects to help shape the NHS of the future.

However, when he is out of the workplace he enjoys: cooking, travel, fine wine and racket sports. He has recently rekindled my enjoyment of golf and hope to improve my handicap.
