Mr Drymousis is a Consultant in General and Emergency Surgery at Whittington Hospital NHS Trust in North London.

He graduated from the University of Athens, Medical School. Following compulsory military service he started training in Hippocration Hospital in Athens, Greece which is one of the University Hospitals of the Medical School of Athens. He trained in General and Hepato-Biliary and Pancreatic (HPB) surgery.

On completion of training in Greece, he pursued further training in HPB surgery in the UK and he was appointed as a Senior Clinical Fellow in HPB Surgery at Hammersmith Hospital in London a post he held for two years. At the same time he completed his PhD on complex upper gastrointestinal surgeries and management of complications and he supported his thesis.

Marie Sklodowska- Curie actions are one of the most prestigious awards available  in Europe and they are the European union’s reference programme for education and training at post-doctoral level. He was supported on his application by Imperial College London.

His surgical practice covers diagnosis and treatment of dyspepsia symptoms, gallstone disease, biliary pathology, and all types of hernia surgery open and laparoscopic. He leads the rapid access clinic at the Whittington, an ambulatory care pathway that minimises the time from diagnosis to treatment, reduces hospital stay and improves patient experience.
