Manish Chand is a highly experienced specialist surgeon and global key opinion leader in the field of colorectal surgery, colorectal cancer and robotic surgery. He is one of the busiest private robotic surgeons in the UK for GI Surgery.
Based at 116 Harley Street, The London Clinic, the practise is centred around minimally-invasive laparoscopic and robotic surgery using the latest evidence-based techniques. He is recognised as a hugely accomplished minimally-invasive surgeon and being able to undertake complex and advanced procedure using key-hole approaches in cases where traditional open surgery has been offered.
Professor Chand offers the highest standards of care for his patients across a spectrum of colorectal and gastrointestinal conditions including rectal bleeding, haemorrhoids, perianal fistula, inflammatory bowel disease, colorectal cancer, diverticular disease, abdominal pain, bloating and hernia. He is regularly featured in national and international media and the press to opine on colorectal conditions including the Pope's surgery in 2021 by AP News Agency. He is also an advisor to CRUK for colorectal cancer and patient awareness.
Specifically, if you have been offered "open surgery" for your condition, it is more than likely that there is a minimally-invasive option that can be offered by Professor Chand and his world-class team - rarely is there an absolute need for "open surgery" in colorectal conditions.
Professor Chand is in the Top 100,000 scientists globally on his research work and citations in the medical literature - the top 2% of global academics. His innovative research studies the latest technological advances in surgery ensuring that our practice remains at the cutting-edge of medicine. He is also the Director of the NIHR Incubator for Advanced Surgical Technology.
"I had full confidence in Prof Chand's expertise and ability to help me make the best decision...he explained everything very clearly...Prof Chand and all of the staff at The London Clinic looked after me very well and I could not be happier with the care I received."
Gastronitestinal (GI) surgery involves any condition associated with the gastrointestinal tract, in particular, the colon and the rectum.
This commonly leads to disturbance in bowel habit, abdominal discomfort or pain, blood in the stool, and even weight loss. Conditions which are specific to the anus and rectum may result in itchiness, discharge or infection from the back passage.
To investigate such problems, in addition to a consultation you may need to undergo one or more investigations including blood tests, stool sample tests, a colonoscopy, a CT or MRI scan.
Prof Chand is an accredited specialist in GI surgery and offers the latest treatments for a variety of conditions in which he is recognised as a global expert. This treatment plan is tailored specifically for you and to ensure that you are confident that you have made the right decision.
He is often called upon to provide second opinion in challenging and complex cases. This service can be provided remotely as a case review.
Within our practice we have a number of experts including physicians, physiotherapists, specialist nurses and surgeon colleagues.
Robotic surgical technology is advancing at a great speed. Robotic surgery can offer significant advantages in technically challenging cases and lead to improved outcomes including faster recovery, fewer complications and more precise surgery.
Prof Chand is a national trainer in robotic surgery and a key member of the newly formed Institute of Robotic Surgery at The London Clinic. Robotic surgery procedures are undertaken with his specialist team to ensure the highest levels of safety and excellence. The practice now undertakes the highest volume of private robotic colorectal surgery in London. All robotic surgery procedures are performed using the latest da Vinci Xi model which is the technically most advanced surgical robot available. Prof Chand completed his advanced pelvic surgery fellowship in robotic surgery using this machine. He also leads robotic training in GI surgery at University College London and University College London Hospital.
Prof Chand works within a global collaborative of robotic surgeons and is involved in the research and development of the next generation of surgical robots in the US, China and India.
Colorectal cancer is now one of the most common cancers in both men and women. Please see the excellent informative video in the "Symptoms" section.
Detecting a colorectal cancer early leads to successful and curative treatments. Identifying and investigating symptoms is the key to success.
Prof Chand is one of the world's leading colorectal cancer surgeons and academic having been awarded a PhD from Imperial College London for his ground-breaking work on rectal cancer. He is also regularly featured in international cancer meetings to describe the latest treatments and research conducted by his lab.
Working within an expert multidisciplinary team, Prof Chand can offer the highest level of treatment globally and, in most cases, undertake cancer surgery through laparoscopy or robotic surgery using the latest modern techniques.
If you have been offered 'open surgery', please request a second opinion from a dedicated global expert such as Prof Chand.
Professor Chand is a fee assured provider and works with all the major insurance companies. In addition, competitive self pay packages are available on discussion which include consultations, surgery and inpatient care.
