Por qué es un doctor de primer nivel/Professional statement/Perché è un dottore di prim’ordine

Mr David Ross McArthur is an experienced consultant colorectal, general and laparoscopic surgeon based in Birmingham. Mr McArthur has a specialist interest in minimally-invasive techniques for the management of colorectal and general surgical conditions, including laparoscopy (keyhole surgery) to treat hernias and all colorectal conditions (cancer and inflammatory bowel disease), and novel techniques to treat haemorrhoids (Rafaelo, THD, eXroid). In addition, Mr McArthur offers treatment for a full range of benign anorectal conditions, including piles, anal fissure, anal fistula and pilonidal sinus, and is a fully trained, JAG-accredited colonoscopist, offering both diagnostic and therapeutic colonoscopy.

Mr McArthur qualified from the University of Birmingham with honours in surgery. He was awarded an MD by the University of Warwick for his research into the pathogenesis of colorectal cancer and later completed a fellowship in laparoscopic colorectal surgery at Leeds, where he developed a specialist interest in the management of patients with advanced and recurrent rectal cancer. In 2011, Mr McArthur was appointed Consultant General and Colorectal Surgeon at Heart of England NHS Foundation Trust, and in 2018 continued in this role at University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Trust. At the Trust, he has played a key role in furthering the provision of laparoscopic colorectal surgery and setting up a service for patients with locally advanced and recurrent rectal cancer.

Throughout his career Mr McArthur has maintained a key interest in teaching, first as a lecturer in anatomy at the University of Birmingham, and more recently as course director for the Royal College of Surgeons' "Strategies in Emergency General Surgery", and the ACPGBI "M42 Coloproctology for Junior Surgical Trainee" courses. He has published widely on a variety of colorectal and general surgical conditions and has presented at numerous international and national meetings. He has sat on the Council of the Association of Coloproctology of Great Britain and Ireland from 2016-2019.
