About me

Mr Siddiqi is a consultant surgeon at Broomfield Hospital in Essex, where he is the lead surgeon for pelvic floor surgery in the Department of General Surgery. He also has a private practice at Springfield Hospital.

Since his appointment in 2011, Mr Siddiqi has led the development of an advanced robotic surgery facility at Broomfield Hospital. He is is one of the most experienced surgeons in the field of robotic-assisted surgery in the UK. Mr Siddiqi is now using his extensive experience in robotic surgery for pelvic floor conditions to develop surgical treatments for other colorectal diseases, including rectal cancer.

Mr Siddiqi has also introduced new and innovative treatments for faecal incontinence and constipation. His clinical interests are both surgical and medical, and include the mangement of pelvic floor disorders, pelvic pain, irritable bowel syndrome, functional bowel disorders, and pruritus ani.

Mr Siddiqi completed his undergraduate training at St George’s Hospital Medical School, graduating in 1993. He received an MD degree from the University of London in 2008 for his research at the Royal London Hospital on methods to improve detection of the spread of colorectal cancer to the lymph glands using genetic techniques.

He embarked on his specialist training in general and colorectal surgery at the North Thames Deanery and undertook further advanced training in the form of a pelvic floor fellowship at Castle Hill Hospital, a leading pelvic floor centre in Hull. Subsequently he took up a laparoscopic surgery fellowship at Waikato Hospital in Hamilton, New Zealand, where he worked in an innovative unit specialising in keyhole surgery and developed an interest in the pelvic floor and minimal access surgery.

Mr Siddiqi is an honorary senior lecturer at Anglia Ruskin University and he is currently involved in a number of surgical research projects in the fields of colorectal cancer and surgical site infection. He is also a tutor for the Care of the Critically Ill Surgical Patient and Basic Surgical Skills courses aimed at surgeons in training and for the Training and Assessment in the Clinical Enviroment course for other consultant surgeons.
