    About

    Mark is a Consultant General and Colorectal Surgeon based in Swansea. He specialises in general and colorectal surgery and  qualified in 1995 from The London Hospital Medical College. He was awarded a higher surgical degree from The University of London in 2005, looking into the role of insulin growth factors in the progression of colorectal cancer. He completed his specialist training in London, Wales and Manchester. 

    Mark was appointed as an NHS consultant in Swansea in 2007 and has undertaken private practice since 2008. In 2014, he became an Honorary Associate Professor at Swansea University. He also holds memberships with The British Hernia Society and the Association of Coloproctology of Great Britain and Ireland.

    Mark believes that the patient experience is fundamental to his practice from the initial consultation through to the final post operative check.

    Mr Davies is very pleasant, dealing with you on the same level, carefully explaining your condition in a manner easy to understand. This put me at ease and made me feel I was in good hands. He was approachable and gave me his email address to contact him personally should I have any queries or concerns. He generally replied within a few hours or less. The day of my cholecystectomy came and again he treated me with the same care and attention before the operation, particularly prior to anaesthesia. Fortunately my operation has had no complications. Within 48 hours I felt back to normal, thanks to his surgical skill! I was informed by the nursing team that he did not leave The hospital until he was happy his patients were not having any complications. A real credit to the medical profession.
