Mr Andrew Jenkinson is a consultant surgeon working privately at the world-renowned London Clinic on Harley Street. He is also clinical lead for bariatric surgery at UCLH, the flagship London teaching hospital .
Mr Jenkinson has had extensive training in laparoscopic (keyhole) surgical techniques in London, Europe and America and has performed over 2,000 procedures to date. He currently carries out approximately 100 laparoscopic hernia operations a year, alongside a similar number of gallbladder procedures. He has a specialist interest in the laparoscopic treatment of sports hernia (Gilmore’s groin).
Mr Jenkinson's training in bariatric, or obesity, surgery conforms with the criteria required by The British Obesity and Metabolic Surgery Society (BOMBS). He provides a full range of obesity-related surgical procedures, including gastric bypass, mini-gastric bypass, sleeve gastrectomy, SADI procedure and revisional bariatric surgery. He performs approximately 200 weight loss procedures per year and has a reputation for performing extremely safe surgery with a very low complication rate and a zero mortality rate, which has resulted in Mr Jenkinson being nominated as the lead clinician for quality and safety (governance) in GI surgery at UCH. He is chair of bariatric development at both The London Clinic and The Wellington Hospital.
In 2010, Mr Jenkinson founded The Institute of Obesity and Metabolism in an attempt to provide patients with a world-class weight loss surgery service in London. He works with a strong team of allied health professionals to help patients before, during and after surgery. The service provides long-term personal follow up, which is essential in maintaining the excellent results of surgery.
Mr Jenkinson's exceptionally high level of training sets him apart from the crowd in the world of laparoscopic and bariatric surgery. As well as his experience and expertise he demonstrates integrity and truly cares for his patients. With this constant effort to ensure that he provides the highest standard of care, it should come as no surprise that Mr Jenkinson is hugely respected amongst both peers and patients.
