About me

Mr Alwhouhayb has been a consultant general surgeon with colorectal interests at Barnet and Chase farm hospitals since Sept 2013.

The emergency operations he carries out range from surgery to complex abdominal injuries, perforated bowel and inflammatory bowel disease complications. Most notably, He has done a number of abdominal trauma surgeries for splenic ruptures, internal abdominal haemorrhage.

Mr Alwhouhayb has also operated on a very complex multiple stab wound case who was presented to our emergency department in a peri-arrest state. He had to perform thoracotomy and laparotomy immediately and he was pleased with the good outcome for the patient.

His role as an emergency surgeon also involve colonic stent placement for bowel obstruction.

His elective theatre sessions involve mainly laparoscopic cholecystectomies, various complex cases of hernias i.e. incisional/ ventral and inguinal. He has a special interest in complex anal fistula. Out of his last 140 cases of lap cholecystectomies only one was converted to an open surgery.
