About me

In addition to his wealth of expertise in the field of general gastroenterology & hepatology, Matthew is an expert in endoscopy and in the management of acid reflux and Barrett’s oesohagus.
He has lead a world renowned unit at UCLH which is also the largest Barrett's centre in the UK undertaking ground breaking research. He hosts the largest live endoscopy conference in the UK and frequently runs endoscopy courses for consultants to refine their own skills. He is the editor of 'Endoscopy in the Cancer Patient', Endoscopy Editor in The Faculty of 1000 and has written numerous scientific papers, reviews and book chapters. Investigating the mechanisms of diarrhea during his PhD allowed him to appreciate the physiology of bowel disorders including constipation, diarrhea and irritable bowel syndrome.
He was able to refine his techniques during an endoscopic fellowship in Sydney and a sabbatical in Tokyo's prestigious National Cancer Centre. He is now one of a select few National Endoscopy trainers with exemplary performance standards, particularly in colonoscopy. He has a special interest in oesophageal and gastric disease including achalasia for which he undertakes POEM. A summary of his special interests are below.
