Mr Sakhawat (zak) Rahman

Consultant Pancreatic, Upper Gi / Bariatric And Advanced Laparoscopic Surgeon - Trust Specialty Training Director In Hpb Surgery & Transplantation

MBChB FRCS(GenSurg) MD

Mr Sakhawat (Zak) Rahman is a Consultant Pancreatic, Upper Gi / Bariatric and Advanced Laparoscopic Surgeon based at the Royal Free London, specialising in open and advanced laparoscopic (keyhole) surgical techniques. From his private clinics in London, he offers a broad range of procedures for hernias, pancreatic cancer, pancreatic disorders, gallstone disease, gastric / oesophageal diseases and obesity.

As a specialist hepatobiliary surgeon he has developed a special interest in the treatment of gallstone disease and its surgical management. He has a strong clinical and medicolegal practice centred around the surgical management of gallstones (cholecystectomy) and bile duct injuries as a result of clinical negligence due to substandard care. He is currently leading the development of a fast track pathway to deliver high quality care to patients with symptomatic gallstones.

Well-respected for his contributions to surgical research, Mr Rahman became a Hunterian Professor of Surgery for the Royal College of Surgeons of England in 2007, and is among the pioneers of laparoscopic pancreatic and upper GI surgery in the UK. Mr Rahman undertook fellowships in renowned centres of excellence in Hong Kong and Germany and has gained experience in prestigious centres across the UK.

Mr Rahman has developed a one stop gallbladder clinic using smart technology. The aim is a seamless transition from diagnostics to surgery – efficiently and with the latest technology. He can now offer an advanced daycase laparoscopic cholecystectomy in most cases – allowing patients to be discharged home within 3 to 4 hours of surgery.
