Dr. Deepak Suri is a Consultant Gastroenterologist at the Whittington Hospital and Consultant Hepatologist at University College Hospital. He specialises in treating patients with abdominal pain, indigestion, diarrhoea and constipation as well as those with any kind of liver dysfunction.
Having graduated from University College London in 1992, Dr Suri trained in general medicine and gastroenterology in several London hospitals including St George's, Guys, The Middlesex and Royal Free Hospitals. However, he continued to broaden his knowledge by delving into hepatology research, writing his MD thesis on viral hepatitis whilst also working at the Royal Free Liver Unit. With the close associations between hepatology and gastroenterology, Dr Suri's broad training has allowed him to gain a more rounded appreciation and understanding of a patient's presenting complaint.
As the Clinical Lead for endoscopy at the Whittington hospital, Dr Suri is a fully accredited endoscopist. This means he partakes in all diagnostic and therapetuic endoscopy procedures such as colonoscopy and endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP)
Dr Suri strongly believes in holistic and individualised approaches to his patients' care. He understands that often natural and complementary methods and treatments for symptoms can be of use as part of a complete management plan. Hence he is willing to discuss these potential avenues with patients, which underlines his focus to provide patient-centred care.
