His primary clinical and academic interest is in liver metastases, pancreatic cancer and cholangiocarcinoma and in the modalities to treat patients with advanced disease, including vascular reconstruction. Mr Fusai is a Consultant Surgeon and Honorary Senior Lecturer in the Liver Unit at the Royal Free Hospital NHS Trust in Hampstead, London. This is one of the two Liver Transplant Units in London and one of the most prestigious centres in Europe for the treatment of liver and pancreatic cancers.
At the Royal Free Hospital a large number of specialists work in the HPB and Liver Transplant Unit. A multidisciplinary approach is crucial in the management of our patients and about 50 consultants cover different areas of expertise. Every year approximately 300 major surgical operation are carried out including liver and pancreatic resections, complex biliary procedures and liver transplants. Patients are referred not just from London, but also from other regions and International countries. Some of these seek a second or third opinion, having been deemed inoperable or untreatable elsewhere.
