Mr Parthasarathi Das is a consultant laparoscopic colorectal surgeon and lead for colorectal cancer surgery at Luton and Dunstable University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust. He performs a high volume of laparoscopic colorectal surgery. He is also a regional specialist in complex major abdominal wall reconstruction. Mr Das aims to help patients make decisions that are right for them and that lead to the best outcome possible. He has vast experience in surgical operations and is able to perform keyhole and open surgery for conditions such as groin and abdominal hernias, colorectal cancer, diverticulosis and inflammatory bowel disease. He also treats ano-rectal conditions such as fissures and warts and uses laser surgery to treat haemorrhoids and anal fistula. Mr Das uses laparoscopic anterior and posterior components separation for the treatment of complex major multi-recurrent large and giant abdominal wall hernia repair which leads to reduced post-operative complications and lower recurrence of the condition. He is currently the only surgeon in South England to use this novel technique. Alongside his colorectal surgery, Mr Das also works closely with gynaecologists to treat complex conditions such as advanced endometriosis and perform difficult hysterectomies. Mr Das first qualified in 1992 before undertaking further surgical training and specialising in colorectal surgery. He then completed a three-year research fellowship studying the surgical outcomes of Inflammatory Bowel Disease surgery at St Mark's Hospital a renowned establishment in the field of intestinal and colorectal disease. Following this, he continued his training around the London area and spent a year working at Ashford and St Peter's Hospital as a consultant colorectal surgeon before being appointed to his current post at Luton and Dunstable University Hospital.
