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.

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.
I was looked after in a very professional manner. Dr was warm and understanding, he answered all my questions and talked me through the procedure.
Very straightforward diagnosis and prompt treatment of hernia via keyhole surgery. Recovery without any problems has been the largest single factor in preparing for international sports tour representing GB.
Mr Tapuria kept in touch with me constantly which made me feel that any problems or questions would be immediately answered . This really helped my anxiety throughout the whole process.
Mr Tapuria was excellent from start to finish. He made me very comfortable, was quick to help, explained everything very well and made me feel very confident in his abilities. I was up 2 days after surgery and it’s down to the wonderful job he did
I found Mr Tapuria exceptionally sympathetic, efficient and knowledgeable. He swiftly diagnosed the problem, sent me for the relevant scan and then made effort to do the follow up whereupon he explained everything about the results. He is also a very patient listener as I asked a lot of questions and he answered them all. He also made good and useful suggestions of self help treatments. The important thing for any patient is to feel reassured and in good hands. That alone is a huge help, but coupled with the right diagnosis, and meds prescribed, I would say I had a great experience and that is such a relief. Mr T is also very approachable and doesnt intimidate the patient. This is also key. Thanks Mr T! I will follow your advice to the letter.
Professional, efficient. Great outcome following required surgery
Mr Tapuria was very thorough in my care concentrating on the points of importance and quickly reassuring me that everything would be checked . In fact he has been so good in dealing with my current issues that I feel like I have had a full MOT . I feel very lucky that he has looked after me whilst I have been in hospital .
Thanks for your feedback . Pleased you feel reassured .
