About me

Mr Ben Cresswell is a Consultant General Surgeon, with a special interest in liver, pancreatic and gallstone disease and the surgical oncology of metastatic cancers that have spread to the lymph nodes and soft-tissues of the abdomen. He trained in Scotland, London and the South East and has spent time in surgical units in Japan and the USA. He is currently a Consultant Surgeon at Hampshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.

He has a substantial research background in laparoscopic (keyhole) surgery, liver cancer and critical care of diseases relating to the liver and pancreas. This mirrors his main clinical interests of complex gallstone disease, pancreatitis and specialist surgery for a range of malignant and benign conditions of the liver and pancreas, including bile duct injuries. He also offers surgical resection of tumours that have either spread to or recurred in deep abdominal lymph nodes.

He has a further interest in hernia repair, including complex abdominal wall defects and is happy to offer a range of laparoscopic or open operations for these conditions. In addition to his clinical practice, Mr Cresswell is an Honorary Lecturer and Laparoscopic Tutor at the Cuschieri Skills Centre, a member of the editorial board of Surgery journal and a regular reviewer for several other publications.

He has been heavily involved in surgical training and is a past member of council of the Royal College of Surgeons and the Association of Surgeons. He is currently the President of the Section of Surgery of the Royal Society of Medicine and the Clinical Editor of Surgery Journal.
