Mr Oliver Jones Consultant

Biography

Mr Oliver Jones is a consultant colorectal surgeon practicing at The Foscote Private Hospital.

He is also a consultant colorectal surgeon at the Oxford University Hospital Trust.

Mr Jones previously held a Consultant Post at Basingstoke and North Hampshire Foundation Trust, and graduated in 1995 from the University of Oxford.

He became a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons of London in 1999 during junior doctor posts at Northwick Park and St Mark’s Hospitals in London.

He then returned to Oxford for two years of research towards a Doctor of Medicine (DM) degree involving research into mechanisms of faecal continence and defaecation, their disorders and treatment.

His research won him a number of prizes including the BJS Prize at the Association of Coloproctology, the Norman Tanner Prize at the Royal Society of Medicine and culminated in election as a Hunterian Professor at the Royal College of Surgeons in 2005.

Mr Jones has published a book and around fifty journal articles and book chapters.

He undertook his registrar training in the Wessex region before completing his training at the world-renowned Royal Brisbane Hospital in Australia.

This gave him a unique experience in complex laparoscopic (key-hole) colorectal surgery for benign and malignant disease offering, for suitable patients, safe surgery with improved cosmesis and faster recovery compared to conventional surgery.

Mr Jones works within the Oxford Colorectal Partnership with Mr Chris Cunningham and Mr Ian Lindsey to provide comprehensive, high quality, sub-specialist care within the fields of general and colorectal surgery.
