A compassionate and caring colorectal surgeon in London
Trained in India and on University College London Hospital's North Thames (East) Higher Surgical Scheme, Mr Chopada is a highly skilled and experienced colorectal surgeon. He combines the ability to ease patients' anxieties and fears with a strong academic and clinical background, leading him to be listed twice as one of the UK's top gastrointestinal surgeons in The Tatler Doctors Guide, once in 2007 and more recently in 2013. Mr Chopada has a research interest in how bowel cancers form, and was awarded a Masters degree by the University of London for this work.

Mr Chopada offers expert diagnosis and treatment for all conditions affecting the anus, rectum and colon, including:
- Anal fissures and fistulas
- Pilonidal sinus disease
- Anal and rectal cancer
- Rectal prolapse
- Bowel cancer and bowel polyps
- Diverticular disease and diverticulitis
- Crohn's disease
- Irritable bowel syndrome

Haemorrhoidal Artery Ligation Operation (HALO)
Mr Chopada offers haemorrhoidal artery ligation, the latest virtually painless procedure to remove piles. Recommended by The National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) as an effective alternative to traditional techniques for haemorrhoid surgery, HALO works by reducing the blood flow to a haemorrhoid.
Under general anaesthetic, a Doppler probe is used to identify the blood vessel that is supplying blood to a haemorrhoid, and a stitch is inserted into the blood vessel to cut off the blood supply. This causes the haemorrhoid to shrink over the following days and weeks. As no cuts or incisions are necessary in the HALO technique, recovery is very quick, and, as the stitch is placed in the lower rectum where there are no pain nerves, the operation is virtually pain free.
Expert investigation and diagnosis of bowel problems in London
Symptoms such as rectal bleeding, blood in the faeces, persistent diarrhoea and passing slime or mucus from the bowel should always be investigated by a doctor. Dr Chopada is highly experienced in examination of the bowel using colonoscopy and flexible sigmoidoscopy. Minor procedures such as removing a sample of tissue for further analysis and removal of polyps from the bowel wall can be undertaken at the same time.
