Mr Crosbie was appointed Consultant Colorectal Surgeon at University College London Hospital in 2009. During his time as site lead for Undergraduate Surgical Teaching at the Bloomsbury Campus, he was Chair of the Surgical MMG; was instrumental in the introduction of a new undergraduate curriculum at UCL and received top teacher awards. He continues to maintain an active role in teaching, research and clinical trials.

Current research is looking at the role of stem cells in anal sphincter reconstruction and microspheres for treating anal fistula.
His clinical practice focuses on colorectal and anal cancer; endoscopy (gastroscopy/colonoscopy) and advanced procotology (recurrent anal fistula/fissures/haemorrhoids). In partnership with his colorectal colleagues at UCLH, he has pioneered the introduction of new anorectal techniques/operations: secca for incontinence; artificial bowel sphincter and abdominal wall reconstruction for recurrent incisional hernia. Mr Crosbie is Surgical Lead for Anal Cancer at University College London Hospital and runs a specialist clinic in the management of Anal Intra-epithelial neoplasia. Mr Crosbie works one day per week as a National Adviser in Surgery at the Parliamentary and Health Care Ombudsman and is also a Specialist Advisor in Surgery for the Care Quality Commission.
