Mr Buter trained as a General Surgeon in South Africa where he obtained a Masters degree in Surgery with honours. His training continued as the Lister Fellow in Upper GI surgery at the Glasgow Royal Infirmary.
Currently, Mr. Buter has a very large and established practice based at the Royal Alexandra Hospital in Paisley. He manages patients with malignant and benign upper gastro-intestinal disease as well as general conditions such as groin and other abdominal wall hernia.
He is a skilled endoscopist and offers very specialised procedures such as ERCP for removal of gallstones from the bile duct. The majority of surgical procedures he performs are done with a laparoscope (so called “keyhole” method) to reduce pain and shorten recovery.
Safe and effective management of gallstones and gallbladder disease via minimal invasive methods, including laparoscopic and ERCP is a major part of his remit both in the NHS and private practice.
He is an expert at laparoscopic TEP repair of groin hernia, being one of the most experienced surgeons performing this operation in Scotland.
