About me

Professor Brian Davidson is Consultant HPB and Liver Transplant Surgeon at the Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust and the Wellington Hospital, London. He is also Professor of Surgery and head of Surgical research at UCL (University College, London). He specialises in managing people with liver, gallbladder and pancreatic surgery at the Wellington and Royal Free Hospitals. He also deals with more routine conditions, such as gallstone requiring cholecystectomy, as well as complex surgical problems requiring a pancreas resection (including 'Whipples' procedure), liver resection or even liver transplant. Patients are referred to Professor Davidson widely from within the UK or from abroad. He is a leading expert on determining which procedures should be performed for patients (evidence based healthcare). With over 20 years experience as a Consultant Surgeon at the Royal Free Hospital, in addition to his other areas of expertise, Professor Davidson is frequently called upon to provide a second opinion.

At UCL, Professor Davidson's research programmes focus on surgical technology, organ preservation and cancer therapy. He is also Editor of the UK Chochrane HPB Group, and Director of UCL's MSc in Evidence-based healthcare.
