Meet The Team

Mr Javed Sultan

Consultant Oesophago-Gastric, bariatric and laparoscopic surgeon

Mr Sultan has been extensively trained in all aspects of general and upper gastrointestinal surgery specifically hernia, cholecystectomy, anti-reflux surgery, gastrectomy, oesophagectomy, weight loss surgery (gastric bypass, sleeve gastrectomy, gastric band, intra-gastric balloon), diagnostic endoscopy and therapeutic endoscopy.

Mr Sultan worked at the Royal Surrey County Hospital for 5 years, as a Consultant Oesophago-Gastric and Laparoscopic Surgeon, which offered a specialist oesophago-gastric cancer service and received complex tertiary referrals from other hospitals around the UK. Mr Sultan also performed weight loss surgery at St George’s Hospital. In June 2018, he relocated to the Salford Royal Hospital, in Greater Manchester, to continue his passion of oesophago-gastric cancer and weight loss surgery. An excellent career opportunity arose due to the recent merging of services in Manchester, making Salford the largest oesophago-gastric centre in the UK, serving a population of 3.2 million. Mr Sultan wishes to develop enhanced recovery, prehabilitation and weight loss surgery further.

Mr Sultan’s aim is to deliver high quality care and a personalised service. He is a reliable, approachable, dedicated, conscientious, trust-worthy and a multi-faceted surgeon whose aim is to deliver high quality care. Patient centred care is his priority.
