About Shameer Mehta, Consultant Gastroenterologist

Dr Shameer Mehta undertook his basic medical training at Guy's King's and St Thomas' School of Medicine, graduating in 2003. During this time, he also obtained a BSc (Hons) in Molecular Medicine from the University of London.

Choosing to specialise in gastroenterology, Dr Mehta then completed an advanced training programme in the management of patients with complex inflammatory bowel disease and intestinal failure, which took place at three separate teaching hospitals in London. He followed this with a joint fellowship in translational science research and medical education run by the Blizard Institute in London and Queen Mary University of London, respectively.

Dr Mehta was appointed as a Consultant Gastroenterologist at University College Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust in 2014, where he has a special interest in Clinical Nutrition and Inflammatory Bowel Disease and works within the highly specialised Intestinal Failure Unit.

In his private practice, Dr Mehta combines his extensive clinical experience and training to provide individually-tailored treatment covering all aspects of gastroenterology, including diagnostic and therapeutic endoscopy, dyspepsia, reflux disorders, functional gut disorders such as IBS, inflammatory bowel disease, coeliac disease and management of the gastrointestinal side-effects of cancer treatment.
