About

Mr Paraskeva is a General and Colorectal Surgeon, specialising in minimally-invasive and virtually scar-free surgery ranging from colon cancers, diverticular disease to hernias and gallbladder surgery.

Mr Barry Paraskeva is a consultant General Surgeon with a specialist interest in key-hole surgery (laparoscopy) in the field of Colorectal surgery. Mr Paraskeva is a pioneer in his field and was the first surgeon in the UK to remove the appendix and gallbladder using single port (incision) laparoscopic surgery aimed to reduce scars after an operation.

After graduating with honours from St Mary's Hospital Medical School in 1994 he went on to train in General and Colorectal Surgery in renowned hospitals in the North Thames area. His main interest lies in elective and emergency General surgery, with particular interest in laparoscopic surgery. He routinely performs laparoscopic appendix removal, hernia repair, gall bladder removal (cholecystectomy) and colorectal resections for benign and malignant disease. He also has an interest in both benign and malignant colorectal disorder.

Mr Paraskeva is an appointed consultant in the prestigious academic surgical unit at St Mary's Hospital. He is passionate about driving advances in his field and participates in research and education, aiming to improve surgical skills and techniques. 

Mr Paraskeva is a keen educator and respected lecturer in surgery and is interested in providing educational seminars. He teaches basic and laparoscopic skills for the Royal College of Surgeons of England and lectures in all aspects of General Surgery at Imperial College.
