Based at Evelina London Children’s Hospital, our world-leading consultant paediatric surgeons specialise in a range of gastrointestinal procedures, from routine to complex.

We provide a wide range of innovative diagnostic tests for babies, children and young adults which enables us to investigate congenital and acquired conditions. Early diagnosis gives us time to plan care for children and perform life-changing surgery.
