CURRENT APPOINTMENT & EXPERIENCE
Since my appointment as Consultant Surgeon in Derby Teaching Hospitals I developed the Bariatric unit to form The East-Midlands Bariatric & Metabolic Institute (EMBMI) which is the Tertiary referral regional Centre for bariatric surgery in the East-Midlands. I led development of the EMBMI in house Tier 3 medical weight management pathway and helped establish physician support for two regional commercial Tier 3 providers, implemented the unit’s Enhanced Recovery After Bariatric Surgery Pathway (reduced length of stay by 18%), developed the unit’s website and information sheets, led the standardisation of the unit’s operative technique for bypass and sleeves, brought in custom operating theatre kits (reduced theatre consumable costs by £81 000/year), developed high-volume theatre lists leading to doubling the volume of theatre cases performed in hours in my theatre, worked with the hospital coding team to identify and improve accuracy of bariatric coding to improve reimbursement for bariatric procedures. I have been appointed Clinical Lead of EMBMI whose team includes seven Consultant Bariatric Surgeons, four Consultant Physicians, five Consultant Anaesthetists (with Bariatric Interest), five Dieticians and three Specialist Nurses. I developed an in house post-CCT Bariatric training fellowship which is now in its second year with my trainees successfully becoming independent operating and gaining Consultant Bariatric Surgeon appointments. I undertake the highest case volume of primary and complex revisional bariatric procedures (170/year). I teach on advanced laparoscopic skills postgraduate courses as well as being faculty at the BOMSS National Training Day. I engage with the Media and other specialties in and out with the hospital to promote the field of Bariatric & Metabolic Surgery. I have successfully developed the unit into a recognised high volume Centre for bariatric surgery. I am also an Upper GI Cancer Surgeon and am a core member

Sherif Awad BSc (Med Sci), MB ChB (Hons), MRCS, PhD, FRCS of the UGI MDT. I undertake a full complement of resectional procedures including laparoscopic assisted oesophagectomies and gastrectomies and have excellent outcomes to date. My Unit has achieved the best outcomes for resectional surgery in the East-Midlands region for the past three years. To date I have performed over 1900 laparoscopic procedures.
BARIATRIC & ADVANCED LAPAROSCOPIC FELLOWSHIP
Imperial Weight Centre, St.Mary’s Hospital, Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust, London I undertook a 12-month national Bariatric Fellowship (approved by Royal College of Surgeons of England) at Imperial Weight Centre. This high volume centre is an International Centre of Excellence for Bariatric Surgery that performed over 400 primary & revisional bariatric procedures annually. I participated in >300 bariatric procedures (NHS & Private setting) and was main operating surgeon in 130 cases. This fellowship gave me excellent training and experience into all aspects of elective and emergency, primary & revisional bariatric surgery.
2014 – Present: Honorary Clinical Associate Professor, University of Nottingham Co-supervised a PhD student (Nila Tewari) to completion of two NIHR-adopted research studies and PhD thesis. I am Co-PI for the multicenter national NIHR led By-Band Sleeve Study which commenced in Derby in Sep 2015.
2010 – 2014: Clinical Lecturer in Surgery & Co-Supervisor of a PhD Fellow Developed novel mechanistic and clinical studies (NIHR-adopted) investigating the effects of major surgery, muscle and adipose tissue function and body composition on development of inflammatory stress and insulin resistance. I was Co-Principal Investigator for these studies. Division of GI Surgery, Nottingham Digestive Diseases Centre NIHR Biomedical Research Unit, Queen’s Medical Centre & University of Nottingham.
2007 – 2009: PhD into Metabolic & cellular effects of carbohydrate-based preconditioning drinks. Division of GI Surgery, Nottingham Digestive Diseases Centre NIHR Biomedical Research Unit, Queen’s Medical Centre & University of Nottingham. Supervisors: Profs DN Lobo & IA Macdonald.
