A thoughly nice person who immedialy puts one at ease with his obvious expertise. After a poor experience with another Consultant in the same hospital, it was with great relive that on a revisit I was put in Mr Thorntons' care. His reassurance and competance are second to none

My second lot of surgery with mr Thornton. He came before the surgery to see how I felt and to explain again in detail what he was doing. I wasn’t scared at all, because mr Thornton is extremely talented surgeon, not only that he’s deeply caring, kind and very understanding. When I have issues I contact his secretary who is absolutely amazing too, and they quickly contact me back. Honestly I’m under a lot of doctors, and I have never met a doctor quite like mr Thornton, I absolutely hold him in high regard. I’m very lucky you are my surgeon, and probably more surgeries to come in future. I wouldn’t want anyone else operating on me. A genuinely nice person who does care for you deeply, you aren’t just a number

Profile

Upon completing medical school in Sheffield in 2000, my early surgical training was completed in South Yorkshire following which I moved to Merseyside to complete my higher surgical training. During this period I also completed a 2 year period of research into colorectal cancer towards my MD thesis. I have recently been appointed as a Consultant in General and Colorectal Surgery at Wrexham Maelor Hospital, with a subspecialty interest in Laparoscopic Colorectal Surgery. Prior to commencing this position, I completed a 6-month Laparoscopic fellowship working with Professor Pete Sagar at St James Hospital in Leeds. This training allowed me to extend my skills with advanced laparoscopic colorectal procedures. I have experienced the breadth of subspecialty colorectal practice, training in both tertiary referral and district general units. I manage both elective and emergency general surgical conditions. My expertise is within all aspects of gastrointestinal disease, but in particular, colorectal cancer, inflammatory bowel disease, incontinence and benign proctology including fistula and fissure. I am also trained in most aspects of general surgery such as abdominal wall hernia and gallstones.
