About me

Emin Carapeti is Consultant General and Colorectal Surgeon and worked as a Consultant at Guy’s and St. Thomas’ Hospitals. He is a Member of the Council of Coloproctology of the Royal Society of Medicine, a member of the Association of Coloproctology of Great Britain and Ireland and an examiner in surgery at the Royal College of Surgeons of England.

He graduated from Guy’s Hospital and undertook his training in London and South East England. His specialist training was at St. Mark’s Hospital in London and Mount Sinai Hospital in Toronto. His thesis and main research was in the treatment of haemorrhoids and anal fissure at St. Mark's Hospital and he was awarded the Doctor of Medicine (MD) degree in 2000. He has published widely on anorectal disorders and pilonidal sinus disease and has pioneered new surgical techniques in complex recurrent pilonidal disease and day case surgery for haemorrhoids. His special interests are rectal bleed, colonoscopy, management of fissures, haemorrhoids and pilonidal sinus disease, and he is a specialist in the surgical treatment of Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis.

In addition to his colorectal work he also has a extensive experience in the treatment of all types of abdominal and groin hernia both simple and complicated. He also attended The Shouldice Hernia Clinic near Toronto, Canada where he learnt about the famous Shouldice hernia repair. He is also a member of The Gilmore Groin and Hernia Clinic team undertaking repair of groin disruption (Gilmore’s Groin). He is a recognised specialist in reconstruction and repair of complex incisional and recurrent ventral hernia, including component separation and advanced mesh repair techniques for which he has a tertiary referral practice.
