Dr Simon Rushbrook is a hepatologist with a sub-speciality in Hepatobiliary Medicine and Liver Transplantation
His clinical expertise is in the management of patients with acute and chronic liver disease (especially autoimmune liver disease and particularly PSC), liver transplantation and Hepatobiliary medicine. He provides endoscopic management of portal hypertension and performs ERCP (+spyglass cholangioscopy) and radial and linear endoscopic ultrasound (EUS).
In 2008, Simon established a UK consortium of investigators for the collection of DNA and clinical data from patients with primary sclerosing cholangitis (UK-PSC). This has led to a number of high impact publications in the area of PSC genomics alongside clinical scoring systems of PSC through international collaborations, one of which was recently published in Hepatology (UK-PSC Risk Score).
Simon qualified in 1997 from the United and Medical Dental Schools of Guys and St Thomas’s. Having completed his House jobs in London he moved to Cambridge where he completed a 4 year PhD establishing the role of T regulatory cells in chronic viral hepatitis. During this time he gained experience in liver transplantation and acute and chronic liver disease. Simon then undertook further period of training in the Cambridge liver unit pre-and post-CSST. During his PhD and training, he undertook ERCP and EUS and has continued to develop an interest in hepatobiliary disease/liver autoimmune disease (particularly PSC) through UK-PSC and his clinical practice. He is currently the service lead for the BASL committee and sits on the UK Cholangiocarcinoma Board and UK-PSC Steering group. Simon was clinical director for gastroenterology department at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospitals and was responsible for the opening of the Quadram Institute endoscopy department and Clinical Research and Trials Unit.
Simon enjoys spending time with his family and playing both classical and jazz piano.
