Mr Christian Macutkiewicz
BSc(Hons) MBChB(Hons) MD PGCertEd FHEA FRCS
I am a Consultant General and Hepato-Pancreato-Biliary (HPB) Surgeon at Manchester Royal Infirmary, Spire Manchester Hospital, Kenmore Medical Centre and The BMI Alexandra Hospital.
I graduated with a First Class Honours degree in Biochemistry and then went on to graduate with Honours in Medicine from the University of Manchester in 2000. I completed a period of research and was awarded a Doctorate of Medicine for my thesis in 2008. I completed my higher surgical training in the North Western Deanery and have worked in London, Cambridge, Nottingham and Manchester before taking up a Consultant position at St James’s University Hospital in Leeds where I practiced advanced pancreatic, gallbladder and bile duct surgery for 5 years.
I returned to Manchester in August 2018 to take up a Consultant post at Manchester University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. I provide elective and emergency general surgery as well as being part of the regional HPB unit specialising in the investigation and management of liver and pancreatic tumours, pancreatitis and gallbladder diseases.
I have a special interest in advanced laparoscopic (keyhole) surgery of pancreas, gallbladder and bile duct, the investigation and management of abdominal pains, open and laparoscopic pancreatic and liver surgery and open and laparoscopic hernia surgery. I have a great interest in day-case gallbladder surgery and improving patient satisfaction whilst in hospital. My other passion is Medical Education; I thoroughly enjoy training the doctors of tomorrow and am now supervising a PhD student in pancreatic research. I am also involved in change management and quality improvement projects to help shape the NHS of the future.
Out of the workplace I enjoy cooking, travel, fine wine and racket sports. I have recently rekindled my enjoyment of golf and hope to improve my handicap.
