About

Mr Lahiri is a Consultant General and HPB Surgeon at the Royal Surrey County Hospital, one of the largest tertiary HPB units in the UK. He specialises in open and minimally invasive gastrointestinal surgery with a particular interest in benign and malignant conditions of the pancreas, liver, gallbladder and bile ducts.

Raj qualified from St. George’s in 2007 and following core surgical training in Cambridge & Norwich, he undertook a period of research at Queen Mary University of London investigating innate immune pathways following major HPB surgery, which lead to the award of a doctorate of medicine (MD) thesis.

Raj completed his higher surgical training in the Kent, Surrey and Sussex deanery including specialist HPB training at the Royal Surrey. Raj consolidated his specialist training with liver transplantation at the Royal Free and a year of HPB and trauma surgery at the Alfred in Melbourne.

Raj also regularly performs day-case general surgery including hernia surgery and excision of skin lesions allied to his complex liver and pancreas cancer work. He also has experience with robotic HPB surgery.

Research

I previously researched ‘innate immune pathways’ in patients undergoing major HPB resection which culminated in my doctoral thesis from Queen Mary, University of London. This work led to multiple publications in prestigious surgical journals.

I am involved in the implementation of the HPB robotic surgery service at the Royal Surrey. This will facilitate more patients receiving cutting edge minimally invasive surgery.
