Clinical interests

To date, Mr Majid has performed over 3,000 operations on the stomach and oesophagus. His clinical interests include laparoscopic (keyhole) bariatric surgery the assessment and treatment of patients with oesophageal reflux or motility problems including those that require revision surgery.

Combining the latest scientific evidence with his own extensive experience, Mr Majid is committed to providing his patients with informed and personalised care, fully involving them in the decision-making process to find the best treatment solution in each individual case.

Bariatric surgery

Bariatric packages include post-op follow-up appointments with Mr Hashemi for the first 6 months after surgery.

Some patients who have had bariatric surgery suffer from troublesome reflux. Previously the remedy for this was long term acid suppressants and medical treatment and, in cases that weren't improving, revision bariatric surgery.

Since 2017, Mr Hashemi has been pioneering a new technique in which he places a ring a magnetic beads around the lower oesophagus and this corrects the reflux. He was the first in the UK to perform this procedure and patients have had excellent results to date. The procedure takes less than an hour and does not involve any cutting or suturing of the stomach or bowel.
