About

Mr Pasquale Giordano has been a consultant surgeon at the Royal London Hospital and   Whipps Cross University Hospital (Barts Health NHS Trust) since 2002 , later being appointed clinical lead for the Colorectal Department of the Barts Health Trust in 2012. Mr Giordano is currently the Clinical Lead for the Pelvic Floor and Functional Bowel Disorders of the Royal London Hospital and Clinical Lead for the Abdominal Wall Surgery service. 

After graduating from the University of Naples, Italy in 1990, Mr Giordano has accumulated a wealth of surgical experience. He initially trained in Italy and the UK before specialising in colorectal surgery by pursuing a fellowship at the Department of Colorectal Surgery of the Cleveland Clinic, Florida and a Senior Colorectal Fellowship at the Centre for Academic Surgery at the Royal London Hospital. Furthermore, he has given lectures and live surgical demonstrations all over the world to go with his numerous scientific papers, which have appeared in prominent medical journals.

This expanse of professional experience, which has taken place around the globe, has helped Mr Giordano to build an international reputation for his high standard of care and training, so much so that both senior colorectal trainees from nearby and abroad are attracted to work with him. Moreover, many of the patients that he has treated are referred from all over the UK and even overseas.

In recent years, Mr Giordano has focused on developing new treatment methods for common conditions such as haemorrhoids, anal fissure and faecal incontinence. Subsequently, he was the first UK-based surgeon to use the transanal hemorrhoidal dearterialization (THD) technique and is currently the surgeon with the most experience of this procedure in the UK. He also directs the only THD training course that is both available in the UK accredited by the Royal College of Surgeons.

It is therefore easy to see why Mr Giordano is regarded as one of the UK's leading colorectal surgeons—a consultant who remains reknowned for his dedication to both his work with both patients and research.

I’m always greeted by Mr Giodando with a smile. He made me feel very comfortable in both the conversation about my issue and during the physical examination. His skills in the surgical theatre and his planning of procedures are concise, while his explanation of what and why he is going to do a procedure are very clear and informative. He is particularly expert at Colerectal procedures and has in fact, saved my life by performing one. I highly recommend this excellent surgeon.

The consultation with Pasquale was first class, I was very impressed with his knowledge and I would highly recommend him. We spoke at length about all of the possible options and he thoroughly understood what I wanted to achieve. At no point did I feel rushed. I was rather nervous on arrival, but he quickly put me at ease with his excellent bedside manner. He is clearly at the top of his field, so I am confident he will deliver an excellent service in the operating theatre.

Mr Pasquale Giordano

We are extremely pleased with your kind feedback and are very grateful for that
