About me

Professor Omer Aziz is a Consultant Colorectal Surgeon at The Christie NHS Foundation Trust, HCA The Christie Private Care, and HCA Wilmslow Hospital. He is a Manchester Academic Health Science Centre Honorary Clinical Chair at the University of Manchester. This is awarded to individuals who have made a major contribution to their clinical speciality including excellence in research and education.

Professor Aziz joined The Christie in 2014, one of Europe's largest comprehensive cancer hospitals. He is based at the Colorectal & Peritoneal Oncology Centre (CPOC) and has been the Clinical Lead for Colorectal Surgery, and Endoscopy Lead there. He specialises in complex minimally invasive (keyhole) and open surgical techniques to treat early, advanced, and recurrent tumours of the appendix, colon, rectum, and anus. He also treats tumours that have spread to the lining of the abdomen (peritoneum), for which he performs cytoreductive surgery with hyperthermic intra-peritoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC).

Professor Aziz has published over 100 peer-reviewed research papers, some of which have been used for clinical guidelines by the UK National Institute of Clinical Excellence (NICE). To date he has obtained grants from Innovate UK, Medical Research Council, Cancer Research UK, Innovate UK and the National Institute for Healthcare Research. He has a lab at the Manchester Cancer Research Centre where he leads cutting edge research.

Professor Aziz was a member of the ‘Healthcare for London-A Framework for Action’ (2007) team reviewing the capital’s healthcare needs for the next decade. He also has an interest in translating research into treatments for patients and is a national laparoscopic colorectal surgery trainer.
