Jamie Murphy completed his medical school training at the University of St. Andrews, Harvard University and St. John’s College, Cambridge. After qualification he undertook his Higher General Surgical Training at the Royal London Hospital and was awarded a PhD in Colorectal Molecular Oncology.
Following this training Jamie embarked upon three Colorectal Surgery fellowships at: St. Mark’s Hospital for specialist training in total pelvic exenteration & sacrectomy for locally advanced / recurrent rectal cancer; Basingstoke Peritoneal Malignancy Institute for specialist training in the use of heated intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC) for recurrent abdominal cancers; and, the Mayo Clinic in the USA for training in advanced minimally invasive surgery and the use of intraoperative radiotherapy to treat pelvic cancers that are unresectable. Following this sub-specialty training, Jamie was appointed as Assistant Professor of Surgery at Mayo Clinic prior to his return to London as a Consultant Colorectal Surgeon at Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust, London.
Jamie’s specialist clinical and academic interests centre upon the treatment of bowel cancers that require advanced therapies due to their extent or complexity. As such, he has been responsible for the establishment of both an advanced / recurrent pelvic cancer service, in addition to a heated intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC) service for recurrent bowel cancer, at Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust. Jamie is also investigating the use of high intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) as a therapy for bowel cancer patients who have tumours that cannot be treated by conventional means.
