Professional statement

Mr Sebastian Smolarek is an extremely well-regarded, trusted, and highly skilled consultant general and colorectal surgeon who possesses expertise in colorectal cancer, hernia surgery, inflammatory bowel disease, pilonidal disease, haemorrhoid surgery, fistula surgery, and laparoscopic and robotic surgery. He is presently practising privately at the Nuffield Health Plymouth Hospital

Impressively, Mr Smolarek, who completed an MD in 2005 at the Wroclaw Medical University in Poland, was the very first surgeon to successfully perform robotic colorectal resections in the South West of England. Not only that, but he was also directly responsible for developing the colon capsule endoscopy service in Plymouth. His main areas of clinical interest include advanced pelvic oncology, robotic and mimimally invasive surgery, proctology, and inflammatory bowel disease surgery. He is also an expert when it comes to performing both open and minimally invasive hernia surgery

Mr Smolarek began his basic surgical training in the department of general and oncological surgery at the Wroclaw Medical University, before going on to undertake a fellowship in laparoscopic surgery in Ireland. 2015 was quite the significant year for Mr Smolarek, as it was the year in which he was awarded two esteemed fellowships: The European Society Fellowship in Rome, the Advanced Pelvic Oncology Fellowship in Wales. In the same year, he was also awarded his Fellowship of the Royal College of Surgeon's Ireland qualification.
