Mr Abdullah Jibawi is a Consultant Vascular Surgeon with a specialist interest in all aspects of vascular diseases: diabetic foot diseases, aortic surgery and in varicose vein treatments.
Mr Jibawi has special interest in difficult to treat varicose veins, eczema and ulcers. He has designed and presented a new innovative classification system for varicose veins based on their complexity. Being a medical Artist, Mr Jibawi pays special attention to the aesthetic side of varicose veins treatment. The selection of treatment will take all such factors into consideration.
Mr Jibawi has a long experience in treating aortic aneurysms using key hole surgery. He has gained this from his work in top UK centres and with world-renowned scientists, surgeons and interventional radiologists. With his background in mechanical engineering, physics and mathematics, Mr Jibawi has special experience in how to choose the most appropriate graft design that fits complex anatomy and that provides the best immediate and long term outcome.
Mr Jibawi’s current theme of interest is thrombolysis for Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT), stroke patients and clots in arteries and grafts elsewhere.
Mr Jibawi is also a specialist in hernia surgery, both open and laparoscopic. He performs lumps and bumps surgery, with a special attention to the aesthetic and functional aspects of this surgery.
Mr Jibawi was awarded a Doctorate Degree (D.M) for his academic work on developing better methods in improving outcome in vascular surgery, a joint work between University of Brighton, Sussex and Oxford, and authored a book ‘Current surgical guidelines’ published by Oxford University Press in 2010, which was featured in the British Journal of Surgery, and now in preparation for the 2nd edition.
Oxford handbook Current Surgical Guidelines is a comprehensive evidence-based summary of guidelines, presented concisely and supported by hundreds of tables and algorithms. Featured in the BJS. February 2011. 2nd edition is in press.
Mr Jibawi enjoys fine art, poet writing, and a variety of sport activities (football, martial art, etc.) on a weekly basis.
Since 2013, Mr Jibawi has been practising as a Consultant Vascular Surgeon at Ashford and St Peter’s Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. Mr Jibawi serves on the board for vascular surgery and is an instructor and examiner to FRCS candidates in the UK and abroad.
