Mr Neil Kukreja is a Consultant Colorectal & General Surgeon. He specialises in minimally invasive, including robotic laparoscopic colorectal treatments for both benign conditions and bowel cancer.

Neil works as a Consultant Surgeon in the NHS and private hospitals, and also trains other consultants on the Da Vinci robot. He is one of a small number of specialists trainers across Europe training other colorectal surgeons in robotic surgery.

Neil is an incredibly hard-working and productive surgeon. He is trained and experienced in many of the latest state-of-the-art surgical techniques and uses advanced medical technologies like robot-assisted devices for colorectal cancer treatment. As a result of his dedication to continuous professional development, Mr Kukreja’s patients reap the benefits of these superior treatments with less post-op pain, lower risk of complications and overall much faster recovery.

In 2015 Neil was appointed Clinical Director of the Emergency Surgery Programme at Medway NHS Foundation Trust, with responsibility for General (including Breast, Colorectal and Endocrine), Vascular and Orthopaedic surgery.

Patients describe Neil as warm, friendly and easy to talk to. He is well aware of the uncomfortable and embarrassing nature of the conditions he treats, and cares very much about putting his patients at ease, and making them feel as relaxed and comfortable as possible throughout their patient experience.

Qualifications and training

Mr Kukreja qualified as a doctor from King’s College London in 1998, gained his surgical fellowship in 2012 and was appointed a Consultant Surgeon in 2014.

Special interests

As a consultant colorectal surgeon, Mr Kukreja has a particular interest and expertise in treating bowel cancer and screening for bowel cancer. His practice is focused on minimally invasive techniques as well as advanced treatments utilising robotic technology.

In addition to laparoscopic surgery he has extensive experience of diseases of the anus, including ultrasound-guided treatment of haemorrhoids (THD), management of complex fistula disease including the use of fistula plugs and pilonidal sinus surgery.

Mr Kukreja manages the surgical diagnosis and surgical problems associated with inflammatory bowel disease and works closely with the gastroenterologists to provide a joined up approach. He is a JAG accredited endoscopist and is able to perform both upper and lower GI endoscopy (OGD and colonoscopy). His general surgical practice includes the management of hernias and gallstones (laparoscopic cholecystectomy).

Awards and nominations

2017 – Short-listed for the Health Service Journal’s ‘Clinical Leader of the Year’ award.

2017 – Chief Executives Scholarship to study in America. Neil used the scholarship to participate in the ground-breaking ‘Promoting Professionalism’ course, which trains hospital leaders in the management of consultants.

2016 – Medway Maritime Hospital Trust’s award for ‘Best Patient Care’.

Many many thanks for all you are doing to help me. You are so very kind and I am so grateful to you. Thank you for talking to me in your clinics, I know I am in very good hands with you and your team.

– Patient, Anonymous

I would like to thank you and your team for the care and consideration I received before, during and after my operation for bowel cancer. I am grateful that all the procedures were explained to me and the aftercare I had on both wards was excellent and could not be faulted.
