Mr Ben Cresswell is a Consultant General Surgeon, with a special interest in liver, pancreatic and gallstone disease. He trained in Scotland, London and the South East and is 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.

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.
