Training & background:
Mr Amit Sinha qualified from Patna University, India in 1989. After having qualified as a surgeon in India in 1993, he came to the UK in 1996 and obtained GMC Specialist Registration in Surgery in 2006.
His main interest is minimally invasive surgery - surgical techniques that cause minimal tissue trauma/scarring and allow reduction in the time that is spent in the hospital and off work. He works closely with his anaesthetic colleague who has an interest in actue pain management enabling a comfortable post operative period and early return to normal activities.
Mr Sinha has extensive laparoscopic general surgical experience with particular expertise in laparoscopic cholecystectomy and laparoscopic hernia sugery, which he currently performs (in appropriate cases) through a single incison at the umbilicus - otherwise known as 'scarless' laparoscopic surgery.
He also carries out THD (Transanal haemorrhoid dearterialization) procedure for haemorrhoids. This is a minimally invasive surgical technique to treat haemorrhoids. For this surgical procedure a doppler is used to locate the termianting branches of the haemorrhoidal arteries. Once the artery is located, the surgeon uses an absorbable suture to ligate or "tie-off" the arterial blood flow. If haemorrhoids are prolapsed, a hemorrhoidopexy is performed to repair the prolapse and to "lift" the tissue back to its anatomical position. The procedure has been recommended by the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE).
