He is Director of Studies for Clinical Medicine and a Bye-Fellow at Downing College, Cambridge, and an Associate Lecturer at the University of Cambridge. He consults with patients privately at the Nuffield Health Cambridge Hospital and Spire Cambridge Lea Hospital, and offers outpatient consultations during the evening, working day or on a saturday morning. He has a particular interest and expertise in the minimally invasive treatments of haemorrhoids (piles), bowel cancer, inflammatory bowel disease (Crohn's disease and Ulcerative Colitis), diverticular disease and colorectal conditions in general.

Prior to his appointment as Deputy Medical Director in 2018, he was Clinical Director for General Surgery and subsequently Digestive Diseases (including GI surgery, Gastroenterology and Endoscopy) for over 7 years. He is Vice President and member of Council at the Royal Society of Medicine Section of Coloproctology, Topic Advisor for the NICE Colorectal Cancer Guidelines Committee and member of the Royal College of Surgeons Cancer Services Committee, Chair of the Association of Coloproctology of Great Britain and Ireland IBD Committee and recent member of Council and Executive Council of the Association of Coloproctology of Great Britain and Ireland, UK National Representative of the European Society of Coloproctology and member of the IBD Committee of The American Society of Colon and Rectal Surgeons. He has been elected an International Fellow of the American Society of Colon and Rectal Surgeons in recognition of his educational and research achievements, and is the recipient of a Silver National Clinical Excellence Award in recognition of his services to the NHS.

Mr. Davies treats patients with all colorectal conditions. He has written extensively on the management of haemorrhoids (piles), and has a particular interest and expertise in the modern treatment of haemorrhoids, establishing the Cambridge Haemorrhoid Centre. Haemorrhoid treatments offered include the minimally invasive Rafaelo (radiofrequency ablation under local anaesthesia) and Doppler-guided haemorrhoidal artery ligation (HALO), also known as transanal haemorrhoidal dearterialisation (THD). These techniques are associated with minimal discomfort afterwards and a faster return to normal activities. He is an experienced endoscopist, and regularly performs colonoscopy for investigation of rectal bleeding or a change in bowel habit, with audited key performance indicators. His general surgery practice is intentionally limited to the open repair of groin (inguinal/femoral) and abdominal wall (incisional) hernias.

Following graduation from the University of Cambridge in 1995, he undertook his training in Cambridge, London, Bristol and Toronto, where he undertook a fellowship in open and laparoscopic (keyhole) colorectal surgery. This included training at Mount Sinai Hospital, Toronto, which is one of the world's foremost centres for the management of inflammatory bowel disease and ileoanal pouch surgery. He was a research fellow at the Medical Research Council Cancer Cell Unit in Cambridge, investigating novel, non-invasive screening methods for colorectal cancer. This culminated in the award of a Master of Surgery higher degree from the University of Cambridge, as well as several prestigious research prizes (Patey Prize and John of Arderne Medal) and publications (including in the Lancet and Nature Reviews Cancer).

Mr. Davies is fully committed to training future generations of surgeons, and is an Educational and Clinical Supervisor for surgical trainees. He was the previous Chair of Education and Training for the Association of Coloproctology of Great Britain and Ireland, and has served as a Programme Director for Core Surgical Training. He is the recipient of several Travelling Fellowships, including the Price Thomas Travelling Fellowship and the Association of Coloproctology of Great Britain and Ireland and Royal Society of Medicine Section of Coloproctology UK Travelling Fellowship.

He maintains an active research programme, particularly in relation to the outcomes of surgery for colorectal cancer, anal cancer, inflammatory bowel disease, diverticular disease and minimally invasive haemorrhoid treatments. He continues to audit his work, presenting at national and international meetings. In addition, he publishes regularly in peer-review journals, is the co-editor of a book published by Cambridge University Press in 2014 entitled "A Surgeon's Guide to Anaesthesia and Peri-operative Care" and is often invited to lecture both in the UK and abroad.

Justin Davies Consultant Colorectal, Laparoscopic Colorectal and General SurgeonMr. Davies is a fully trained, specialist surgeon in the use of laparoscopic (keyhole) surgery for colorectal cancer, inflammatory bowel disease (Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis) and diverticular disease. This approach has the advantages of smaller scars, less pain, a quicker recovery with less time in hospital and a faster return to normal activities/work. It is likely to result in fewer adhesions (scar tissue) inside the abdomen as well as fewer wound complications (infection, hernias). His results have been published, as well as presented in the UK and internationally.
