About me

Dr Tony Lopez was educated in London, England and trained medically at St. Thomas's Hospital (University of London) graduating with a BSc in Biochemistry in 1985 and qualifying with MB BS in 1988. His Postgraduate Medical Education at Northwick Park, Hammersmith, Royal Brompton National Heart & Lung and Royal Marsden Hospitals led to the MRCP qualification in 1991.

He was appointed Radiology Registrar at Hammersmith Hospital in 1991 before joining the St. George's Hospital Rotation as a Senior Registrar in 1993 gaining FRCR in 1994. Experience was gained at The National Hospital for Nervous Diseases, Royal Marsden & Great Ormond Street Hospitals as well as St. George's Hospital.

Dr Lopez is a past recipient of multiple awards including a Nycomed Interventional Scholarship (1995) and a Cook Interventional Fellowship (1996) all used to develop his interventional radiology experience. He was also awarded the Reginald G Reid/Graham-Hodgson Scholarship to develop his interest in Endoscopic Ultrasound. He subsequently won the Stanley Melville Memorial Award in 1996 at The British Institute of Radiology to study at The Karolinska Institute, Stockholm where he consolidated his specialist interests in Gastrointestinal Endoscopic & Cancer Imaging.

He was appointed Consultant at Royal Surrey County Hospital and St. Luke's Cancer Centre in 1996 with a major interest in Interventional Radiology and subspecialty interests in invasive coronary angiography & gastrointestinal endoscopic intervention. Dr Lopez was appointed lead radiologist in 2002-6 and was lead interventional radiologist in the department between 2008-2020.

He has written many scientific papers and presented work nationally and internationally personally, as well as supervising junior colleagues to do the same. Much of this work represents pioneering research into new minimally invasive techniques in diagnosing and managing patients with malignancy. His previous major interest was in the development of the minimally invasive management of pelvic venous congestion syndrome with one of the largest series in the world for 'Transjugular pelvic vein embolization'. He is an invited speaker Nationally and Internationally on this area of pinhole surgery.

Dr Lopez was the original author of Radiological Intervention in Oncology, a chapter in the Anglo-American textbook Imaging in Oncology edited by Professors Janet E. Husband & Rodney H. Reznek, now in its third edition.
