Professional statement

Mr Majid Hashemi is a prolific London-based consultant surgeon, specialising in anti-reflux surgery and laparoscopic (keyhole) bariatric surgery. As one of London's most esteemed surgeons, he has wide experience in a range of surgical treatments, including surgery for hiatal hernia, anti-reflux surgery, bariatric surgery, and oesophageal & gastric cancer surgery. Mr Hashemi holds a notable safety record, with over 3,000 stomach and oesophagus operations performed at a zero mortality rate. Mr Hashemi has performed a range of 'firsts' in surgery, including the first laparoscopic gastric bypass and first laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy in North London in 2004 and the first LINX implant for reflux in London in 2013. In 2017, he performed the first ever implant of a LINX device on top of a sleeve gastrectomy.

Mr Hashemi is one of the only 12 surgeons in the UK who can currently offer the LINX procedure as a method of treatment for acid reflux. His significant experience allows him to give a focused, patient-centred approach, tailoring treatment for each individual and their specific needs.

Through his dedication to innovation in surgery, Mr Hashemi established and chaired one of the country's first bariatric surgery services with a multidisciplinary approach, providing patients with 'one-stop' care, diagnosis and treatment from a range of specialties. The establishment of the first bariatric surgery team in North London allowed Mr Hashemi to develop surgical approaches, and provide training for many of today’s bariatric and upper GI surgeons.

He currently is Chair for the National Achalasia Patient Support Group, and has one of the longest and most extensive experience in the surgical treatment of achalasia in the capital. Mr Hashemi is also an active researcher, and maintains a strong interest in education, having previously held tutoring and lecturing positions at University College and the Whittington Hospital. He is published extensively and is regularly invited to speak at conferences both on a national and international level. He continues to be involved in training for laparoscopic and bariatric surgery, and acts as supervisor for a number of research projects.

Dr Hashemi was great to work with. I had never gone under general anaesthetic before and he put me at ease, checked in with me the night before the surgery, and was always calm and understanding during my recovery. The surgery has really changed my life and I'm very grateful!
