Professor Amjad Parvaiz is a visiting consultant surgeon at Poole NHS foundation trust in the UK and is Head of the Laparoscopic & Robotic Colorectal Unit at the Champalimaud Foundation in Lisbon, Portugal.

He holds a personal chair at the University of Portsmouth affiliated with the Faculty of Health Science in Portsmouth, UK. He is also Director and Founding Member of the European Academy of Robotic Colorectal Surgery (EARCS) since 2014.

He has vast experience in laparoscopic and robotic colorectal surgery with particular interest in training in minimally invasive techniques worldwide. He became the leading trainer in UK for delivering largest number of training procedures within the National Training Programme (Lapco). He has performed and supervised more than 2500 laparoscopic colorectal resections & more than 1000 robotic colorectal resections. His clinical results are quoted as one of the best in the world for short term hospital outcomes and long -term cancer survival. 5 year local recurrence rate of 1.4%.

He has a keen interest in research and teaching with over 150 publications in International peer reviewed journals and book chapters. He is on Editorial boards on number of International peer review journals. He has supervised various research projects leading to award of MSc and MD degrees. He has successfully pioneered and established epicenters for minimally invasive surgery including laparoscopic and robotic colorectal surgery at Portsmouth, Poole in UK and at the Champalimaud Foundation in Lisbon, Portugal. Under his leadership, these centres have gained National and International reputation for teaching and training.

His interest in teaching and training of minimal access surgery, Led him to develope and designed the robotic rectal training programme for European colorectal surgeons and led the creation of the European Academy of Robotic Colorectal Surgery (EARCS). He has also established International centers of excellence for laparoscopic and robotic colorectal surgery throughout Europe, Russia, East Africa, Turkey, Iran, Pakistan and China.

In recognition of his work, he was elected as a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons of England, Fellow of Portuguese Society of Surgery in Portugal and Honorary chair for professor of surgery at Belgrade University of Medicine, Belgrade, Serbia. He also has won numerous awards and honors worldwide.

International: Teaching & Training

Laparoscopic Surgery

I was advisor and master trainer for the development of Laparoscopic Colorectal Surgery in the following countries:

• Iran
• Morocco
• Tunisia

• Pakistan
• Poland
• Turkey

• Kenya
• Russia
• Serbia

It is a  project to develop laparoscopic colorectal surgery in Eastern Europe, North and East Africa. A hub and spoke model was employed with the aim to develop central unit and thereafter to expand training to regional centres in the respective countries. I trained number of local consultant surgeons in the laparoscopic colorectal surgical techniques in various centres in these countries. It involved personal commitment and various travels to these countries. The program was successfully delivered in Russia, Kenya, Iran and Turkey.

Robotic Surgery

Professor Amjad Parvaiz is a Director and Founding Member of the European Academy of Robotic Colorectal Surgery (EARCS). He was instrumental in establishing EARCS as an assessment based training academy to introduce robotic technology to surgeons without incurring a risk to the patient. To date, EARCS has successfully trained over 150 delegates of which 80 have now completed the assessments and been certified as competent to perform robotic colorectal surgery. Since the start of EARCS in 2015, professor has personally performed and supervised more than 1000 robotic training operations with EARCS delegates in 15 countries:

• Austria
• Denmark
• Ireland
• Netherlands
• Sweden

• Belgium
• Finland
• Italy
• Portugal
• Switzerland

• Czech Republic
• France
• Germany
