Professor Amir Nisar

Best Surgeon

Professor Michael Bailey and Professor Amir Nisar are the first two surgeons in the world to perform Laparoscopic Nissen’s Fundoplication as a day case in Royal Surrey County Hospital, Guildford, England United Kingdom. Patients had their surgery done, recovered, and discharged on the day of the surgery. The outcomes were presented internationally in 2002, and this is a standard practice followed by many globally.


Professor Amir’s love for antireflux surgery started in 1994 after having attended a course in the Royal College of Surgeons in England, United Kingdom, and assisting Professor Robin Kennedy in Somerset. He reckons this as one of the most intricate operations in Laparoscopic surgery and places its significance above every other operation in General and Laparoscopic surgery. Professor Nisar has run live surgery workshops and courses in Europe and Asia to teach senior surgeons to perform antireflux surgery safely in their practice. He also provides advice to the surgeons who are already performing this operation. Professor Nisar has trained surgeons in the United Kingdom and mentored them to set up Anti Reflux surgery in their centers, safely.

Professor Amir Nisar has worked in tertiary referral centers dealing with such operations in straight forward and complex cases of reflux for more than 24 years. He learned, gained experience, and later independently dealt with complex cases referred from the other hospitals.

His expertise really comes into its own on the assessments, identifying the causative issues and performance of corrective surgery for patients who might have had surgery elsewhere and have any problems after the surgery. He has done it successfully over the years in the tertiary referral centers in the United Kingdom and the United Arab Emirates.
