Professor David M Lloyd has spent over 30 years specialising in liver and laparoscopic surgery
He qualified in London and trained in liver surgery in Chicago being one of the first surgeons to perform a living related liver transplant. He was head-hunted to continue this work in Hamburg and became a consultant surgeon in Leicester in 1994 specialising in liver and laparoscopic surgery. He pioneered many operations and developed a microwave machine to treat liver cancer in 2001. He was the first to perform a laparoscopic cholecystectomy in Leicester in 1990, and was the first to perform laparoscopic anti-reflux procedures and splenectomies in children within the UK. He developed his Lloyd Release Procedure to treat athletes with groin pain also known as sportsman’s groin and has treated famous athletes such as Shane Williams, Michael Carrick, Peter Crouch, Jamie Vardy, Peter Schmeichel, Scott McTominay to name but a few.

In My Down Time…..
During the hours I’m not working, I like to spend time and relax by playing the guitar, cycling, water skiing, snow skiing and spending time with my wife Debbie and my grown-up children Arabella and Harrison (without forgetting Bonnie and Boo our two little dogs of course!).
I also support several charities including The Outward Bound Trust, Oxfam and Leicester’s Air Ambulance Service.
“Glenn was able to resume training and for the first time in two years, run and kick freely. The end result was his best season ever as Albion won League One and he scored 22 goals. Now it was the adulation of the Seagulls’ fans echoing around the ground.”
“Undergoing surgery is a daunting prospect for most people. I am dedicated to providing my patients with the best possible care, and I believe that understanding the process is as vital to the service I deliver as the diagnosis and surgery itself.”
What to do now…
During your consultation, you will be able to ask any questions you want, so don’t be afraid to ask any question relating to your groin pain. It may be easier to make a note of any changes you’ve noticed in preparation for the consultation.
