About me

Mr Higgs graduated from Bristol University School of Medicine in 1996 and after house jobs spent a year in Perth, Western Australia. His basic surgical training rotation was in Exeter followed by a period of research at the Bristol Royal Infirmary under Professor Derek Alderson investigating the role of endoscopic ultrasound guided FNA in oesophageal cancer management.

He completed higher surgical training on the South West rotation with extensive general surgery, bariatric and oesophagogastric cancer experience.

The Three Counties Oesophago-Gastric Centre @ Gloucestershire Hospitals is a designated centre for NHS bariatric services and the designated resection centre for oesopha-gogastric cancer resections for the three counties cancer network. Mr Higgs is the Clinical Lead and MDT Lead for the unit.
The unit is the busiest in the South-West for keyhole gallbladder surgery performing over 600 procedures per year.
