Expertise

Professor David Lloyd has pioneered many operations including gallbladder removal, laparoscopic hernia repair and laparoscopic surgery to remove the spleen and adrenal glands. With his interest in liver cancer, he has developed a microwave machine to treat patients with liver cancer. This machine is now being used all around the world in hundreds of cancer centres and hospitals. He coordinated an International study on the use of microwaves to treat liver cancer which also gave him world-wide recognition.

With more than 25 years’ experience, Professor Lloyd has one of the largest series of laparoscopic gall bladder operations, laparoscopic hernia operations and spleen and adrenal surgery. He has developed a new and innovative procedure for the treatment of groin pain in sportsmen known as the Lloyd Release Procedure (www.lloydrelease.com).

He has now performed more than 20,000 laparosocpic operations including 4000 gallbladder operations, 15,000 laparoscopic hernia procedures, 400 laparoscopic splenectomies and over 200 adrenalectomies. He was the first surgeon in the UK to perform a laparoscopic liver operation in 1997.

'Single-port' cholecystectomy

In 1991, Professor Lloyd was responsible for one of the first gallbladder removal procedures (cholecystectomy) performed in the UK and has since gone on to gain an international reputation for his skill in laparoscopic (keyhole) gallbladder surgery. More recently he has pioneered an even less invasive 'single port' technique, where, in selected patients, the gallbladder is removed through a single small incision near the bellybutton, further minimising scarring and postoperative pain.

The Lloyd Release Procedure

Groin pain is a commonly seen complaint in amateur and professional athletes, often, but not exclusively, occurring in football, rugby and hockey players. This type of pain is sometimes diagnosed as sportsman's hernia and patients may undergo hernia surgery, with highly variable results.  In fact, most athletes complaining of groin pain do not have a hernia at all, and it has become apparent that the cause of the pain in these cases is due to tension in the ligaments as a result of recurrent strain.

Following extensive anatomical research, Professor Lloyd has developed a revolutionary new treatment for groin pain known as the Lloyd Release Procedure.  The inflamed and tense ligaments responsible for the pain are released laparoscopically and patients are encouraged to mobilise quickly, returning to light training within days and normal training within weeks.

Professor Lloyd has treated more than 2000 male and female athletes with a very high success rate (93% of patients returning to their sport within 4 weeks).  The procedure is suitable both for those with newly diagnosed groin strain and those who have already had conventional groin surgery.

What patients say about Professor David Lloyd

I just wanted to thank you so much for mending my groin in 2016 as I managed to complete the Berlin Marathon, as I told you I was planning on doing in 2017. Well two weeks after, I completed the Chester Marathon too, beating that time ..a week later I thought I’d give the Leicester half marathon another go too, in between lots of training and my club standards reaching silver for club...next year Paris marathon! Thank you once again
