About me

Mr Russell is a fully accredited NHS Consultant General Surgeon on the General Medical Council specialist register for General Surgery.

Mr Russell undertook his undergraduate medical studies at St. Andrews University before completing his clinical studies at Cambridge University.

Mr Russell has experience in all aspects of general surgery but his main interests in general surgery lie with the treatment of abdominal wall and groin hernias. He performs laparoscopic (key hole) and open surgery and performs hernia repairs under general, local and spinal anaesthetic.

Through his experience with intestinal transplantation Mr Russell performs repairs/reconstruction of complex abdominal wall hernias.
