Minimally Invasive Colorectal & General Surgeon and Oncology

An esteemed surgeon of almost 20 years, Nawar Alkhamesi holds both diverse experience and international recognition in surgery, academia, and medical research. Within his specialization of minimally invasive and robotic colorectal and general surgery and oncology, he incorporates almost every technique available and provides his patients with a comprehensive treatment plan, no matter what type of surgery they require. He currently practices at Western University in Ontario and London Health Sciences Center University Hospital and serves as the associate program director for the Advanced GI and MIS fellowship at Western University.

 

Dedicated to both the practice of medicine and the advancement of the field, Nawar is part of a highly specialized medical team that treat his patients while teaching medical residents, fellows, and visiting fellows from abroad. He places the utmost importance on patient care and recovery. During the patient journey, from diagnosis to treatment to after surgical intervention, Nawar and his team of nurses, dieticians, and pain care specialists, and other medical experts look after them while they’re in their care.

 

Nawar’s focus on the minimally invasive aspect of surgery began decades ago, in medical school, where he pioneered techniques that are now part of the standard of care. He completed his surgical, general surgery, and colorectal surgery training at Imperial College London and St. Mark’s Institute in the U.K and Western University in Canada. While a research fellow at Imperial College, he developed an innovative technique for peritoneal aerosolization in minimally invasive surgery, and then continued his study of this specialized area at the University of London, where he earned his Ph.D. in surgical sciences.

 

Prior to joining Western University seven years ago, Nawar worked as a minimally invasive colorectal and general surgeon at Imperial College London. While serving within that role, he worked throughout the United Kingdom at The Royal Marsden, Chelsea & Westminster, Charing Cross, and St. Mary’s Hospitals. In addition to caring for patients through his practice, Nawar continues his research work in England, participating in the development new technologies to deliver therapeutics into the body cavity during minimally invasive surgery through utilizing a combination of fluid and gas to create an aerosol. His research interests include surgical innovation and education, advance minimally invasive and video-assisted surgery, colorectal oncology, and the improvement of the operative environment, and he has published more than 40 journal articles and book chapters, which can be found on PubMed.
