Introduction

Dr. Muhammad Hanif Shiwani

I am a Consultant General Surgeon with a special interest in Gastrointestinal and Laparoscopic surgery. My specific interests are the treatment of Gastro Oesophageal Reflux Disease, Hiatus hernia surgery, Anti-reflux surgery, Gallbladder Removal, All types of Hernia Repair including open and laparoscopic repair of inguinal and incisional hernia.

I provide endoscopic diagnostic upper and lower GI investigations including Gastroscopy and Colonoscopy.

I use Laproscopy (“the keyhole method”) for a whole variety of operations resulting in smaller scars, less pain and a shorter stay in hospital. I am a nationally recognized trainer and a faculty member of many laparoscopic surgical training courses where I train junior surgeons.

I am one of the main providers of upper GI and laparoscopic surgical services at Barnsley General Hospital NHS Foundation Trust in South Yorkshire and I have developed all the above laparoscopic surgical services at the hospital.

You are welcome to use this site in order to see what services I offer, how to contact me to arrange an appointment, and to use some of the services provided on the website.

I have also appeared in several newspapers (under the misspelt name "Hanis Shiwani") regarding an operation I performed to remove a nine-inch fork from the stomach of a patient after it had been stuck for 10 years.
