The Wakefield Clinic is a private clinic, run by Professor Richard Stubbs, specialising in the surgical treatment of diseases of the upper gastrointestinal tract such as those listed below. Many of the treatments offered are new and innovative and the Clinic has since its inception in 1991 acquired a national and even international reputation for some of these, particularly in the field of liver cancer and severe obesity.
Wakefield Clinic was originally set up within Wakefield Hospital and formed an important part of Wakefield Hospital's Gastroenterology Centre. In December 2013, the Clinic moved consulting rooms, and is now located at 121 Adelaide Road. We continue to work closely with the Wakefield Gastroenterology Centre, and all procedures are undertaken at Wakefield Hospital.
The Clinic has since its inception been heavily involved in postgraduate teaching and research activity. We are active in publishing our results and research in the international medical literature. Some of these articles may be of interest to you. Visit our Download page to view these files.
