Professional Biography

Mr James Kinross is a consultant colorectal surgeon. His clinical interests are in minimally invasive, laparoscopic and robotic surgery for the treatment of colorectal cancer and benign conditions of the colon and rectum such as diverticulosis and inflammatory bowel disease. {{ label }}

He also treats both inguinal and incisional hernias. He has an interest in surgical nutrition and modulation of gut bacteria by pro and prebiotics for improved operative outcomes and gut health.

He was trained in Northwest London and at St. Mary’s Hospital and he was an NIHR Clinical Lecturer in Surgery and an Ethicon Laparoscopic Fellow in Colorectal Surgery. He performed his PhD at Imperial College London in 2010, which studied how bacteria in the gut modify inflammation after surgery. He was awarded a Royal College of Surgeons of England training fellowship during his PhD and he was funded by the Academy of Medical Sciences as an early stage lecturer. He is a visiting Professor at the Royal College of Surgeons of Ireland.

He is a Senior Lecturer at Imperial College London and a major theme in his research is the role of the gut microbiome (the hundreds of trillions of bacteria that reside within the colon) in the cause of colon cancer, Crohn’s disease and obesity. He is currently funded by Bowel and Cancer research and the Imperial Biomedical Research Centre.
