About

Mr Chris Briggs is a Consultant general surgeon who qualified from the University of Sheffield medical school at the turn of the millennium. He trained in general surgery in the South Yorkshire region and spent two years in Leicester studying for a research MD into the invasive properties of colorectal cancer cells which have implanted in the liver. He then sub-specialised in Gallstone, Hepatobiliary and Pancreatic surgery, working on the Sheffield liver and pancreatic unit for two and a half years and subsequently spent a year at the Leeds liver transplantation centre.

He completed his training here in Plymouth as a Senior Fellow and has been a Consultant Surgeon at Derriford and Nuffield Hospitals since 2013. He is an expert in the treatment of gallstones (laparoscopic cholecystectomy and bile duct exploration), and laparoscopic / open hernia repair, as well as major abdominal surgery for liver and pancreatic cancers.
