As well as his clinical work, Dr Haidry has considerable experience in research and academic work. This allows him to work on innovative new procedures and research.
Dr Haidry is actively involved in a number of research projects at the world leading University College London. His work is regularly published in leading journals in the field, and he works consistently to push boundaries and find the best future treatments.
His current research interests focus on developing new methods for the diagnosis, detection and treatment of early cancer in Barrett’s Oesophagus. This is alongside early detection and treatment of other gastrointestinal tract conditions. Dr Haidry’s research projects also involve coordinating and running one of Europe’s largest endoscopy registries. The UK radiofrequency ablation registry collects nationwide outcomes of treatments. The current prognosis for oesophageal cancer is lower than is should be in the UK, but this is based on late diagnosis. His work shows that diagnosing patients with Barrett’s Oesophagus and reflux early can help in the early treatment of cancers.
Research Projects into New Procedures
Dr Haidry is also regularly involved in trialling new and innovative procedures and treatments. Recently, this includes the use of cryoablation for freezing and removing early cancers of the oesophagus. This is proving to be an exciting development and Dr Haidry is a pioneer in this field. He was the first to perform cryoablation on patients with Barrett’s Oesophagus and early squamous cancer in this country. He is also leading a European study looking at the use of this technique in patients.
Dr Haidry is also looking at how he can use endoscopic procedures to treat patients with Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus. Duodenal mucosal resurfacing (DMR) is an innovative and novel endoscopic intervention for the treatment of patients with poorly controlled Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus. Dr Haidry once leads in this field, as the first UK doctor to carry out duodenal mucosal resurfacing on patients of this kind.
Dr Haidry’s commitment to his research and finding new and innovative procedures and treatments for his patients. Many of these latest treatments are available via his clinics too.
