My name is Jeremy Livingstone and I am a Consultant General Surgeon located in the North West of London. I am a graduate of King's College and the Westminster Hospital, with post-graduate experience in many of the hospitals around London as well as specialist training in Japan.
I am a fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons of England and hold a Mastership in Surgery from the University of London.
I practice full-time in the National Health Service at Watford General Hospital and the Mount Vernon Hospital and Cancer Centre. My private practice is based at the Spire Hospital in Bushey.
I was appointed to my consultant post in 1996 and over the ensuing years, have amassed a wide experience of surgery in general. During this time, there have been many changes to the way in which surgery has been delivered and myself and my colleagues have had to adapt accordingly. For example, laparoscopic (“keyhole”) surgery was in its infancy in the 90s but now accounts for a major part of my everyday practice. I have now performed approximately 3000 keyhole gallbladder operations!
My major career interest has always been in diseases of the gastro-intestinal tract with a more recent emphasis specifically on diseases of the oesophagus (gullet) and stomach. I am currently the lead clinician of the Hertfordshire and South Bedfordshire Upper Gastrointestinal Cancer Unit which provides specialist services for all patients in this region.
Other than digestive disorders, my expertise lies in abdominal hernia surgery including diagnosis, sports injuries and all types of operative repair.
Outside of medicine, my hobbies are cars, electronics, watching Watford FC and embarrassing the children.
