Mr Khaled Hamdan is a consultant surgeon currently working at Brighton and Sussex University hospitals and he has a specialist interest in weight loss surgery and benign and cancer upper gastrointestinal surgery.
Mr Khaled Hamdan graduated from Southampton Medical School in 1996 and received his higher surgical training in various hospitals in Wessex. Prior to his consultant appointment he undertook two advanced surgical fellowships; the first was awarded by the Royal College of Surgeons of England in bariatric surgery and minimally invasive (keyhole) surgical techniques and the second was at Queen Alexandra Hospital in Portsmouth.
Mr Khaled Hamdan has a strong academic background with a doctorate thesis on the early detection of cancer and has several publications and lectures on how to avoid and manage complications after weight loss surgery. He recently co-authored a book titled "Bariatric Surgery: From indications to postoperative care".
In addition to his current consultant post in Brighton, Khaled also currently holds the following posts:
- Honorary consultant surgeon at Worthing General Hospital
- Honorary Clinical Senior Lecture at Brighton and Sussex Medical School
- Honorary lecturer at the University of Edinburgh.
- Research lead at the Royal Sussex County Hospital and surgical tutor at the Royal College of Surgeons of England.
Khaled has been performing weight loss surgery in Brighton since 2010. He performs weight loss surgery including laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding, gastric bypass, sleeve gastrectomy and gastric balloon insertion. He also has extensive experience in a wide range of advanced laparoscopic procedures including antireflux and hiatus hernia surgery, laparoscopic cholecystectomy, open and laparoscopic hernia repair and open and laparoscopic resection of cancers of the stomach and oesophagus.
Khaled believes that delivering safe and effective care to patients before and after weight loss surgery requires multi-professional team approach. To this end he has recently joined forces with Mr Khera, another bariatric surgeon, and embarked on the establishment of the Brighton Bariatrics which includes a group of specialists (surgeons, dieticians, gastroenterologists, anaesthetists, a diabetologist and a psychologist) with the aim being to provide patients with a comprehensive support throughout their journey to recovery and help them realise the full potential of the weight loss procedure they chose to undergo.
Khaled is married with three children. He enjoys playing squash and spending his free time with his family.
