Mr Brij Madhok

I am a consultant surgeon at Royal Derby Hospital. I specialise in laparoscopic (keyhole) surgery, General, Upper GI surgery, and Bariatric / Metabolic (weight loss) surgery.

I commenced my surgical training in India, and underwent further higher specialist surgical training in London, Manchester, Yorkshire, and completed the prestigious Sunderland bariatric fellowship approved by the Royal College of Surgeons, England.

I am an honorary Assistant Professor at the School of Medicine, University of Nottingham. I enjoy teaching medical students, and also regularly teach junior surgeons on advanced laparoscopic (keyhole) surgery training courses and other surgical training courses.

I am especially interested in medical research, and was awarded Doctor of Medicine (MD) by University of Leeds for my work in cancer research. I also undertook a Postgraduate diploma in clinical health research at the University of Leeds. I participate in different research projects, especially in the field of weight loss and metabolic surgery. I have presented my work at several national and international conferences. I have a number of publications in peer-reviewed medical journals, which can be accessed by following the link below –


I am a member of the British Obesity and Metabolic Surgical Society (BOMSS) and submit my results to the national database. I am completely open about the operations I perform and the results achieved. Details about the operations I have performed can be found following the link below.
