I finished my undergraduate training at the University of Sheffield in 1995. Following a year in Australia, I completed my surgical training in London and the South East. My MD thesis on liver surgery was at the Royal Free Hospital, London. I specialise in laparoscopic (keyhole) abdominal surgery, especially gallstone and gastro-oesophageal reflux. I am also a Bariatric (weight loss) surgeon having completed a fellowship at UCH, London. I offer Bariatric operations including band, bypass and sleeve gastrectomy as well as revision surgery
Mr James Hewes carried out a Nissen Fundoplication for me on 15th November 2018. I'm now 2 wks post op and have been amazed at the speed of recovery and even more how life changing the results have been, no more reflux no more medication , clear head and great sleep after many yrs of living with the symptoms of reflux & PPI's. The care received by Mr Hewes and the team before, during and after the surgery was exceptional and I felt in very safe hands throughout. To Mr Hewes and the theatre team thank you very much for your skill and care which has given me a new lease of life at 66 yrs old. Best wishes Ivor Baines
Thank you for the excellent care I received as a day case, when a tiny epigastric hernia was repaired, resulting in speedy recovery and no further symptoms. I am very grateful, as the symptoms were disproportionate to the size of the hernia.
Patient and caring, someone who after a number of doctors making me believe I was a hypochondriac listened to me, really listened for the first time.
Met Mr James Hewes for the first time today to discuss test results and options. I was pleasantly surprised that Mr Hewes himself greeted me at waiting area and within minutes of the appointment time. After introductions and discussions about my illness history and current condition the test results, options, and all associated risks and benefits of these options were discussed. I had read up on my condition and likely options prior to the meeting, Mr Hewes kindly took the time to explain in detail all questions I had and explain the complications and variables of the test results which I found reassuring. Throughout the consultation I felt comfortable, at ease, unhurried, and extremely well cared for. Mr Hewes gave me total support to be able to make a confident unrushed decision, which for me is to opt for an operation. Thank you very much Mr Hewes for gold star care.
