About me

Mr. Andrew Jenkinson is a general surgeon in Harley Street, London specialising in Bariatric and Laparoscopic procedures. His interests include surgery for weight loss and diabetes, acid reflux disease, gallstones, hernia repair and surgical emergencies. He is a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons and holds a Master of Surgery title for his research thesis. He is a member of the British Obesity and Metabolic Surgery Society, the International Federation of Surgery for Obesity, the Association of Upper GI Surgeons and the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery.

Mr. Jenkinson is passionate about upholding the highest levels of professionalism, care and integrity for his patients. He was inspired to a career in surgery from an early age and qualified from Medical School at 23. He undertook a rigorous residency and fellowship training program over 10 years including placements at the world-renowned Hammersmith Hospital, Royal London Hospital and University College London Hospital. His interest in surgical research was stimulated by the Master of Surgery thesis in the field of laparoscopic surgery for acid reflux. He has subsequently published over 50 research papers and presentations. He has been actively involved with training junior surgeons in the UK, Europe, America and the Gulf. His experience and knowledge in surgery mean he is highly sought after for his medico-legal opinion and is regularly asked to be an expert witness. His first consultancy post was at the Homerton Hospital NHS Trust in East London. Here he oversaw commissioning and governance and rapidly built up the bariatric unit to become the largest NHS provider in London. In 2008 he moved to University College London Hospital, part of UCL. In April 2017 Mr Jenkinson started a non-paid sabbatical from NHS work for 1 year in order to write a book explaining weight regulation and metabolism for patients suffering with obesity. The book is due to be published in early 2019.
