Dr. Pranab Gyawali

MBBS (London), FRCP (UK)
Consultant Gastroenterologist

Dr Pranab Gyawali undertook his medical training at the prestigious Guys and St Thomas’ Medical School in London in 1997. He continued to refine his skills in gastroenterology and achieved his CCT in 2007 after advanced GI training in London.

Between 2008 and 2022, Dr. Gyawali dedicated himself to serving in the National Health Service in Northeast London. There, he provided a full range of GI services, earning recognition from his peers, which was underscored by the award of 3 Clinical Excellence points.

Dr. Gyawali is known for his proactive approach in medical services development. He established a GI Physiology Unit and initiated the very first Inflammatory Bowel Disease multidisciplinary team meetings at his hospital, improving the scope and quality of care for patients.

He has also lent his expertise to the broader medical community through time-limited but valuable roles as a Care Quality Commission Hospital Inspector and as an examiner for the Royal College of Physicians (UK) for the PACES Exam. These roles, though not permanent, allowed him to make a meaningful impact on the standards of healthcare and medical education.

Dr. Gyawali's scholarly contributions include articles in international journals and presentations at national conferences, with a special interest in inflammatory bowel disease and gastrointestinal motility disorders.

As a member of the British Society of Gastroenterology’s Small Bowel and Nutrition Committee and a Fellow at the Royal College of Physicians (UK), Dr. Gyawali brings a wealth of knowledge to his practice. He is fully registered with the UK General Medical Council and holds a DHA License, ensuring he is equipped to provide top-tier gastroenterology care to a broad patient community.

PATIENT REVIEWS

I was referred to Dr Gyawali for a manometry test. He carefully studied my medical history. and realised that my previous doctor had repeatedly missed a significant diagnosis. He immediately referred me on to the necessary specialists for urgent treatment. I cannot thank him enough..
