Mr Reddy offers private surgical treatment of:


  • Gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GORD)
  • Achalasia
  • Gallstones
  • Hernias
  • Obesity


Fast-track treatment for gallstones in Central and Greater London

Formed from cholesterol and bile salts, gallstones are a leading cause of abdominal pain in the UK.  Known as biliary colic, the pain is often provoked by eating, is felt in the upper right part of the abdomen, and may be accompanied by vomiting and nausea.  Gallstones may also cause symptoms of indigestion.  These types of symptoms should always be investigated as prompt treatment can prevent serious complications such as jaundice and pancreatitis.


Mr Reddy is Service Director for the Rapid Gallstone Clinic, a fast track diagnostic and treatment service for patients with symptoms of gallstone disease.  Keyhole surgery to remove the gallbladder and any gallstones (laparoscopic cholecystectomy) is the most commonly recommended treatment, although non-surgical options may be suitable in some cases.  Patients undergoing laparoscopic cholecystectomy are often ready to leave hospital the same day or the following day.  In a minority of cases, however, it may be safer to remove the gallbladder in an open procedure or switch to an open procedure once surgery has begun, necessitating a longer stay in hospital.


Laparoscopic anti-reflux surgery (fundoplication)

Stomach acid is prevented from flowing into the oesophagus by a muscle called the lower oesophageal sphincter.  When this muscle does not function properly, the rising stomach acid causes heartburn in a condition known as gastrointestinal reflux disease (GORD).


Mr Reddy is experienced in laparoscopic fundoplication, an effective, minimally invasive surgical treatment for GORD that restores the valve between the stomach and the oesophagus, allowing the majority of patients treated to stop taking antacid medication completely.
