Mr Paraskeva is a pioneer in his field and was the first surgeon in the UK to remove the appendix and gallbladder using single port (incision) laparoscopic surgery aimed to reduce scars after an operation.

After graduating with honours from St Mary's Hospital Medical School in 1994 he went on to train in General and Colorectal Surgery in renowned hospitals in the North Thames area. His main interest lies in elective and emergency General surgery, with particular interest in laparoscopic surgery. He routinely performs laparoscopic appendix removal, hernia repair, gall bladder removal (cholecystectomy) and colorectal resections for benign and malignant disease. He also has an interest in both benign and malignant colorectal disorder.

Mr Paraskeva is an appointed consultant in the prestigious academic surgical unit at St Mary's Hospital. He is passionate about driving advances in his field and participates in research and education, aiming to improve surgical skills and techniques.

I found this doctor to be very personable, easy going and down to earth. He was willing to actually talk to me and answer all my questions. I wish all doctors brought such enthusiasm and skill to their practices. Top notch.
