About me

Stephen Lake graduated from the University of Birmingham in 1978 with a First Class Honours Degree in Medicine. Having completed his junior doctor posts in the United Birmingham Hospitals and being awarded the Fellowship of the Royal College of Surgeons (1982), he undertook surgical training at the Royal Free Hospital in London. He was then appointed as Lecturer in Surgery at the University of Leicester during which time he completed his surgical training and under took a period of surgical research, for which he was awarded a Doctorate (MD) by the University of Leicester and in addition, a Hunterian Professorship by the Royal College of Surgeons of England.
Stephen was appointed to the Worcester Royal Infirmary as a Consultant General Surgeon in 1991.

Although still a Consultant General Surgeon as he fully participates in the general surgical emergency commitment of the Worcester Royal Hospital, Stephen specialises in colorectal disease and in particular the investigation and treatment of patients by endoscopic (flexible telescope) and laparoscopic (key-hole) techniques.

During his time as consultant surgeon in Worcester he has undertaken a number of service delivery and management roles including Clinical Director for Cancer Services, Clinical Director for Surgery and Endoscopy. He has had a key role in introducing a number of very successful clinical services into Worcestershire including laparoscopic colorectal surgery and enhanced endoscopy techniques such as the national bowel cancer screening programme.

Stephen was appointed as an Intercollegiate Examiner (final assessor of Surgical Trainees) by the Intercollegiate Examination Board in 2006.
