    About

    Mr Vincent Yip is a consultant hepato-pancreatico-biliary (HPB) and general surgeon at the Royal London Hospital, Barthealth NHS Trust. He performs all general surgical operations and specialises in surgery of the gallbladder, pancreas, and liver.

    His particular interest is in the use of minimally invasive approaches, specifically the use of the Da Vinci Robot, to treat complex HPB diseases. He is the current robotic HPB lead at the Royal London Hospital.

    After graduating from the University of Glasgow in 2000, Mr Yip completed his Doctor of Medicine research degree at the University of Edinburgh. From 2006 to 2013, he received advanced surgical training at the Mersey Deanery, where he gained expertise in pancreatic surgery under Professor John Neoptolemos and liver surgery under Professor Graeme Poston. He then completed a two-year post-specialist training fellowship in HPB and liver transplantation at Hong Kong University and King's College Hospital, focusing on cancers in the cirrhotic liver.

    Mr Yip has previously worked as a Consultant HPB Surgeon at the Royal Liverpool University Hospital, the world's largest pancreatic centre, where he served as the clinical lead for the pancreatic cancer MDT and pancreatic neuroendocrine service.

    He has over 30 published papers and book chapters to his credit, as well as numerous national and international appearances. He is currently the principal investigator for a number of clinical trials at the HPB unit at the Royal London Hospital.

    Thank you very much for your kind feedback. The most important for me is that you have recovered well after the operation. Thank you for trusting me to treat you and provide support for your family.

    Patient seen for:
    Very good experience (well, as surgeries go!). Mr Yip was able to arrange surgery for me at short notice, which was very helpful. He explained the surgery much more clearly than any other surgeon I consulted had done and made sure I understood the procedure. The surgery itself went well and the recovery time was as expected. Highly recommend.

    Patient seen for:
    From my first appointment until the surgery, every staff that I encountered were great, accommodating and caring. Mr Yip did a great job and I am really healing well. I jst hope that someone can explain to me the “new things” I can feel inside my body after surgery. I am aware that they will be putting in a mesh to fix the hernia but I don’t know how it should feel like, so I can identify future health issues if it arises e.g. lumps. But other than that, everyone has been amazing. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

    Patient seen for:
    Mr Yip was clear and informative through out the whole process. Taking the time to ensure I was comfortable with the procedure and any changes that may occur during the surgery. All my questions were responded to quickly - the whatsapp interaction was great. I felt that I was in a safe pair of hands. At no point was I worried that he was not the right person to make be better.
