About me

In April 2017 Mr McGonigle returned to his native Belfast after leading the thoracic surgery and lung cancer services at the Internationally renowned Harefield Hospital, London for over 5 years. He is currently, chair of the Clinical Reference Group for NICaN which is responsible for guiding the management of patients with lung cancer in Northern Ireland. His special interest is in minimally invasive surgery ('Keyhole') with over 60% of cancer surgeries being performed by this technique. He is a strong advocate of reducing hospital stays for patients and enhancing the experience of patients undergoing cancer care.

Areas of interest

'Keyhole Surgery' (VATS) for the treatment of lung cancers and secondary cancers in the lung. I also perform surgery for pleural effusion almost always by minimally invasive technique. Surgical procedures to treat and prevent pneumothorax 'collapsed lung'; Surgery for chest wall deformities (pectus carinatum and pectus excavatum); Surgery for the control of excessive sweating (hyperhydrosis) and facial blushing - 'keyhole' sympathectomy.
