Por qué es un doctor de primer nivel/Professional statement/Perché è un dottore di prim’ordine

Dr Mark Austin is an experienced consultant gastroenterologist based in Brighton, Hove and Haywards Heath. He is an expert in the investigation and management of gastrointestinal problems, including abdominal pain, inflammatory bowel syndrome (IBS), hiatal hernias and food intolerances. He also specialises in hepatology, caring for patients with liver disease, hepatitis and jaundice. Before working as a consultant, Dr Austin spent six years at the Liver Unit at Kings College Hospital treating patients who had undergone live transplantation. Here he also completed his research on the survival characteristics of patients with end-stage liver disease.

Dr Austin is a very advanced interventional endoscopist, carrying out all variations on endoscopy, including colonoscopy, ERCP, endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) and gastroscopy. These allow Dr Austin to achieve a very close examination of the liver, gallbladder, bile ducts and digestive tract. Additional to being a consultant, he is also the Clinical Lead for endoscopy at his NHS posting. Dr Austin is very committed to putting his patients first, and most recently he has enabled a much improved referral pathway for rapid access and diagnosis for patients with lower gastrointestinal symptoms.

Dr Mark Austin is keenly involved in teaching, acting as director for the annual South East endoscopy symposium, as well as taking time out of his busy schedule to train and teach endoscopy skills to other doctors in both the UK and overseas.
