About me

Mr Goede qualified from the University of Pretoria in South Africa in 1996, and came to the UK in 1998 where he first worked as a Basic Surgical Trainee in Hampshire and Warwickshire for four years. Two years of research followed at the Royal Free Hospital and he was awarded an MS from the University of London.
In 2004 Mr Goede gained a training position on the Oxford Higher Surgical Training Scheme. He attended specialist training courses and has had clinical exposure to laparoscopic surgery and complex colorectal surgery from early on in his training, and took a special interest in this field and pelvic floor surgery during his training in the Oxford region. He completed his training with a six month Advanced Laparoscopic Colorectal and Pelvic Floor Surgery Fellowship in Bristol. Further laparoscopic fellowship work in Berkshire followed before he settled as consultant in Buckinghamshire, where he has lived since 2001.

He now works as a Laparoscopic General and Colorectal Surgeon at Stoke Mandeville and High Wycombe Hospitals. He practices as a specialist colorectal surgeon, and consults patients with general abdominal, colorectal and pelvic floor complaints. He performs weekly laparoscopic bowel resections and general surgery and colorectal surgery day-case procedures; and weekly gastroscopy and colonoscopy diagnostic and therapeutic procedures to diagnose or exclude, and treat a variety of colorectal, gastroenterological and general surgical diseases.

At Stoke Mandeville Hospital he has in addition developed a specialist interest in General Surgery and Colorectal Surgery for Spinal Cord Injury patients, and Complex Abdominal Wall Reconstruction alongside the Plastic Surgery unit based there.

Arnold has published extensively, in particular during the final years of his training and as a fellow. Interests include his research subject, carcinoid tumours, and more lately minimally invasive haemorrhoidal surgery, laparoscopic colorectal surgery, pelvic floor surgery and single port laparoscopic surgery for colorectal disease.
Arnold lives in Buckinghamshire with his wife and two children.
