About

  • Biography icon plus

    Professor Long R Jiao is a professor of surgery, chair and consultant in hepatobiliary and pancreatic surgery (HPB) at Hammersmith Hospital of Imperial College London, and the lead for Robotic hepatobiliary and pancreatic surgery at Royal Marsden Hospital. He has set up the first Robotic HPB programme in London and UK.

    He is the lead surgeon and an academic Professor at Imperial College and Royal Marsden Hospital. He is in charge of specialist training in general surgery at Northwest London as training programme director, featured in Surgery of ITV programme.

    He is also an intercollegiate examiner for Royal College of Surgeons of England and Edinburgh for FRCS.

    His basic science work is focused on MicroRNAs, circulating tumour cells (CTCs) and liver regeneration. For the first time he described CTCs residing in organs local to pancreatic or colon cancers, and identified 3 mRNAs to differentiate benign from premalignant pancreatic cystic tumours for early detection of pancreatic cancer. Furthermore, he has described a range of innovative surgical techniques performing the largest number of laparoscopic and robotic liver and pancreatic resection including laparoscopic and robotic Whipple’s in the UK. He performed the 1st Robotic Whipple’s operation in the UK (see video link above). In liver surgery, he introduced radiofrequency-assisted liver partition with portal vein ligation for staged liver resection (RALPP) to increase the number of patients for liver surgery who are normally considered unresectable by inducing liver hypertrophy preoperatively to avoid postoperative liver failure based on his expertise in radiofrequency. He published one of the first two papers in world on the use of radiofrequency in management of liver tumour (Am J Surg 1998 ; Lancet 1999). He has successfully performed this robotically (see video link above). In pancreatic surgery, he described longitudinal pancreaticojejunostomy following Whipple’s for pancreatic reconstruction, and laparoscopic Long’s sleeve pancreaticogastrostomy (LPG) for central pancreatectomy to preserve pancreas and spleen. He has over 200 publications including high IF journals as the first or senior author in Nature communication, The Lancet Oncology, the Journal of Clinical Oncology, Gastroenterology and Annals of Surgery.
