Mr Misra has been a Consultant Paediatric Surgeon and Urologist at the Royal London Hospital, London since 1995.

He trained at the prestigious Hospital for Sick Children, Great Ormond Street. He has the unique distinction of having described a new surgical operation- Surface Umbilical Pyloromyotomy.

He published a new classification of Mega-rectum in ARM where he had observed 4 distinct sub-types over the last 29 years. Also led to strategies to lower the incidence of this complication, with the incidence of megarectums dropping from 26% before 2013, to 4% thereafter. (Paed Surg Internat, 2020).

He published his own innovations in urethral fistula surgery over a 24 year period. No patient needed more than 2 surgeries for a cure, a world first. (Paed Surg Internat 2022).

He also published his own innovations in neonatal oesophageal surgery (OA TOF) where over a 22 year period he had no anastomotic leaks, another world first. (Ind J Ped Surg, Dec 2022).

He offers surgery for children and young people in various hospitals in London & Greater London area including West Essex.

In all, he has worked in Paed-Surgery for over 35 years. He is board-certified in the UK and his name is on the Specialists Register for Paediatric Surgery.
