Mr. Tan Arulampalam Laparoscopic & General Surgeon

I was born in Sri Lanka and educated at Rugby School in England. I was awarded my Medical Degree by the University of London after five years at St. Bartholomew's Hospital Medical School. I enjoyed my training in London including Basic Surgical Training at Barts, Whipps Cross Hospital, Homerton Hospital, the National Hospital Queen Square and the Royal London Hospital.

My specialist Higher Surgical Training was completed at Oldchurch, Whittington, Chase Farm and Colchester Hospitals with the award of Fellowship of the Royal College of Surgeons of England in 1996 and Intercollegiate Exam in 2003. During this period I undertook a two year research post at the Department of Surgery and Institute of Nuclear Medicine, University College London where I won a Trustees Grant to study molecular imaging of colorectal cancer. I was awarded my higher degree by thesis in 2003. Having been awarded the David Dunn Fellowship by the Association of Laparoscopic Surgeons of Great Britain and Ireland I spent 3 months in Rome under Professor Cristiano Huscher completing my laparoscopic training. I was awarded the Association of Surgeons of Great Britain and Ireland Travelling Fellowship (2007) as well as a Royal College of Surgeons of England Research Grant (2008). I am married with five children.
