    Year qualified: 1983

    Place of primary qualification: University of Leeds

    Professor J Peter A Lodge has been a consultant surgeon at Spire Leeds Hospital since 1992, following on from training in the Yorkshire region and working at Harvard Medical School in Boston, USA. He was awarded his Chair in Surgery in 2004 in recognition of his significant contributions to advances in surgical technique.

    Professor Lodge performs laparoscopic gastric bypass/weight loss surgery. He is an active member of the British Obesity and Metabolic Surgery Society. Most recently, following intensive training in Copenhagen, Professor Lodge has introduced modern Scandinavian techniques to Spire Leeds Hospital for this challenging surgery, with an emphasis on rapid recovery. In 2009, he was awarded the Gold Medal of Honour by the Danish Surgical Society.

    Professor Lodge is recognised internationally as one of the world's most experienced liver surgeons. He has created a major hepatobiliary service, taking referrals from all around the UK and from abroad, including other major hepatobilary centres. He provides a service for difficult liver tumours, often taking on cases considered to be inoperable elsewhere, and also deals with complex biliary strictures and injuries to the liver and bile ducts, often laparoscopically. Professor Lodge's NHS and private patient programme has grown from six hepatic resections and two bile duct cases in 1992 to 350 major resections and up to 80 complex bile duct operations each year by 2010.

    As a biliary specialist Professor Lodge welcomes routine gallstone cases.
