Professor Abu Hilal specialises in liver, pancreatic and biliary surgery with a special interest in laparoscopic (key hole) surgery.

He considers his sub-speciality as one of the most complex surgical specialities, where good knowledge, advanced surgical skills, hard work, dedication and enthusiasm are a must to achieve excellent outcome and to deliver a high standard of care. However, he believes that good communication, empathy and mutual trust and respect between himself and the patient are the essential pilots to reach clinical excellence and improve patient’s experience.
