Mr Goede qualified from the University of Pretoria in South Africa in 1996, and came to the UK in 1998. He first worked as a Basic Surgical Trainee in Hampshire and Warwickshire for four years. Two years of research followed at the Royal Free Hospital and he was awarded an MS from the University of London.
In 2004 Mr Goede gained a training position on the Oxford Higher Surgical Training Scheme. He attended specialist training courses and has had clinical exposure to laparoscopic surgery and complex colorectal surgery from early on in his training, and took a special interest in this field and pelvic floor surgery. He completed his training with a six month Advanced Laparoscopic Colorectal and Pelvic Floor Surgery Fellowship in Bristol. Further laparoscopic fellowship work in Berkshire followed before he took up a position as consultant in Buckinghamshire in 2011, where he has lived since 2001.
He now works as a Laparoscopic General and Colorectal Surgeon at Stoke Mandeville Hospital, Wycombe Hospital and at the BMI Chiltern. He practices as a specialist colorectal surgeon, and consults patients with general abdominal, colorectal and pelvic floor complaints. He performs weekly laparoscopic bowel resections and general surgery and colorectal surgery day-case procedures; and weekly gastroscopy and colonoscopy diagnostic and therapeutic procedures to diagnose or exclude, and treat a variety of colorectal, gastroenterological and general surgical diseases.
At Stoke Mandeville Hospital he has in addition developed a specialist interest in General Surgery and Colorectal Surgery for Spinal Cord Injury patients, and Complex Abdominal Wall Reconstruction alongside the Plastic Surgery unit.
Currently, he is the Lead for the Robotic Surgery Steering Group, Director of Medical Education for the St George's School of Medicine students based at Buckinghamshire Healthcare, Enhanced Recovery Programme Lead, Nutrition Lead for Surgery and Educational Supervisor to several Higher Surgical Trainees attending from Oxford.
Arnold has published extensively, in particular during the final years of his training and as a fellow. Interests include his research subject, carcinoid tumours, and more lately minimally invasive haemorrhoidal surgery, laparoscopic colorectal surgery, pelvic floor surgery and single port laparoscopic surgery for colorectal disease.

Mr Goede's academic research interest focused on the molecular biology of neuroendorcine tumours and peritoneal fibrosis and adhesions, which earned him an MS from the University of London in 2007.
During specialisation and currently his clinical research interest focuses on the clinical benefits of laparoscopic surgery and the enhanced recovery programme, the treatment of haemorrhoids and pelvic floor disorders.
I received the Care Award, shared with Miss Murray Consultant Plastic Surgeon, for the development of the Ambulatory Care Unit at Stoke Mandeville Hospital.

Courses offered to GPs
Within Buckinghamshire I present training sessions to GP on the enhanced recovery programme, laparoscopic colorectal surgery, colorectal pelvic floor disorders and surgery, and acute emergency general surgery. This is arranged either via the NHS directly at practices (my secretary at Stoke Mandeville arranges these) or via the BMI Chiltern Hospital at teaching evenings at The Chiltern Hospital. I am more than happy to come and present on any topic in General Surgery on request.
Outcomes (checked and approved by medical professional body)

Please see the detailed National Bowel Cancer Audit report above and the ACPGBI Surgeons' Outcome report:
These highlight the excellent outcomes of the most complex work that I do.
Besides the cancer resections, I operate on patients with benign conditions, and those are not reported nationally. I perform about 75 major colorectal resections annually, 87% of these are completed laparoscopically (keyhole), and my overall mortality rate is well below 1%.
I see and treat a wide variety of general surgical conditions, and do a large number of laparoscopic inguinal hernia surgery, always using the TEP approach, with a very high patient satisfaction rate. For more information:
I very frequently see and treat patients with anal fissure, haemorrhoids, anal fistula and different types of bowel and pelvic floor prolapse. I attend the St Marks' Pelvic Floor MDT on a monthly basis to discuss my patients' treatment plans.
In addition, I am a JAG accredited colonoscopist and endoscopist, and remain accredited by maintaining the required high standards set by JAG. My complication rates are monitored and extremely low, and reviewed by the Endoscopy Lead annually and reviewed in my Appraisal.
