Laparoscopic (Keyhole) gallbladder and biliary surgery
I have a special interest in diseases of the gallbladder such as gallstones and gallbladder dyskinesia and have a high volume practice in managing these conditions with experience in managing acute gallstone disease. I also manage bile duct stones and pancreatic pseudocysts laparoscopically.
Laparoscopic (Keyhole ) Groin hernia surgery
All patients with groin hernia regardless of symptoms should be offered a consultation as the long term outcome of early operation is better than wait and watch policy even in asymptomatic hernia according to recently published international guidelines. I have a special interest in performing laparoscopic groin hernia operations. I have been to Belgium to train and learn new approaches in robotic surgery in groin hernia .
Abdominal wall hernia and complex abdominal wall reconstruction ( Laparoscopic/Open)
I adopt a multidisciplinary team approach to complex abdominal wall reconstruction including both open and minimally invasive techniques. Abdominal wall hernia result in poor quality of life due to poor abdominal wall function and surgical treatment can offer a significant improvement in quality of life. I offer Laparoscopic and open approaches to management of abdominal wall hernia, incisional hernia, umbilical and paraumbilical hernia. I have learnt new approaches in robotic surgery in abdominal wall hernia repair and reconstruction at specialist centres in Belgium .
Acute Surgery (Laparoscopic/Open)
I have a high volume practice im emergency surgery and perform laparoscopic appendicectomy, laparoscopic cholecystectomy , diagnostic laparoscopy for abdominal pain, small bowel resection, colectomy, laparoscopic duodenal perforated ulcer repair
Excision of skin lesions, surgical treatment of haemorrhoids and anal fissure.

Very well looked after. No problems or worries whatsoever.
Mr Tapuria was very kind and professional. He has been really thorough with his follow up and extremely helpful when I needed to see him again after my hernia operation when my stitches were uncomfortable. He saw me the next day and I’m feeling loads better. I would highly recommend him.
Many thanks for your feedback Glad you have done well
From my initial appointment onwards, Mr Tapuria provided excellent care. Before my procedure Mr Tapuria took time to go though my options in detail and fully explained what would happen during and after surgery. This was very reassuring and I never felt anything but confident going into surgery. The after care I received was also first class.
Clear explanations, pleasant manner but would have been nice to have had more of his time after the operation.
Thank you for your feedback . I am glad you have made a good recovery .
Very clear and thorough
Thank you for your feedback
Explained the operation well at the outpatient appointment. He went out of his way to email me when I was in two minds about going ahead with the op. Operation went well with excellent after care .
From the first contact I felt like I was being treated like Mr Tapuria’s family. All questions answered fully, decisive action plan carried out promptly. Communication excellent - nothing was too much trouble.
Dr Tapuria is a very experienced and professional surgeon who provided me with excellent pre and post operative care.
I found my experience as a patient of Dr Tapuria’s to be very smooth sailing. I had little knowledge of my procedure to start with he made me feel totally at ease from the first consultation, answering every question i had. On the day of surgery i felt anxious however, Dr tapuria put my mind at ease prior to the operation and was very attentive through out my aftercare. Overall i would highly recommend Dr tapuria not only for his knowledge but also for his manner.
Dr Tapuria, explained the procedure very well making sure I understood the procedure and will to explain again if I did not understand.
