The specialist training and prestigious overseas fellowships Mr Satyadas received in the UK (London and Cambridge), Europe (Paris, Heidelberg, Berlin) and Australia has provided him with extensive experience in performing complex operations with the specialities of General Surgery and HPB Surgery.
Mr Satyadas has been trained and has excellent experience in performing repeat hepatectomies (liver resections) for colorectal liver metastases. He has also developed specialty interest in minimally invasive laparoscopic (also known as key-hole) surgery, which, when indicated, he will offer to his patients e.g. laparoscopic cholecystectomy, laparoscopic removal of bile duct stones and laparoscopic groin hernia repair and laparoscopic liver and pancreas surgery.
Mr Satyadas has a passion for surgical innovation, evidence based medicine and believes in enhanced recovery after surgery. Mr Satyadas continues to provide patient centered care, tailoring management and surgery to suit the individual patient.
