Mr Jason Smith is a consultant surgeon with a special interest in general, colorectal and laparoscopic surgery. His specific interests are the treatment of inflammatory bowel disease, ileal pouch surgery, colorectal cancer, endoscopy, reconstructive pelvic surgery, gallbladder removal, hernia repair and the newer operations for haemorrhoids including haemorhoidal ligation (hemorpex).
For many of the operations listed above Mr Smith uses the 'keyhole (laparoscopic) method' resulting in smaller scars, less pain and shorter stay in hospital. Mr Smith runs a large surgical practice at The West Middlesex University Hospital in West London. He also runs a research unit at the hospital, along with colleagues at Imperial College & Chelsea & Westminster Hospital. Mr Smith’s principal research interests are in risk adjustment in surgery, patient outcomes, colorectal cancer and inflammatory bowel disease.
