I am a consultant in the department of transplant surgery.
Dominic Summers

My current role

My main clinical interests are kidney and pancreas transplantation, along with vascular access surgery (creating access for patients to receive dialysis).

My research interests include epidemiological studies evaluating risk in transplantation and patient outcomes, clinical trials, particularly the use of routinely collected data to make clinical trials more efficient, and development of new types of organ donation pathways.

Previous history

I studied natural sciences at Cambridge before starting my medical degree, also at Cambridge. My surgical training has been split between Cambridge and Oxford. I completed a PhD in the department of surgery at Cambridge, which investigated the outcomes of kidney transplants from circulatory-death donors. I was formerly an NIHR clinical lecturer in the department of surgery, and president of the National Transplant Trainee's Association (The Herrick Society).

Membership and accreditations

I am a fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons of England, a member of the British Transplantation Society and a member of the European Society of Transplantation.

Personal interests

When not at work I spend most of my time with family as I have two (soon to be three) small children. I would like to play more cricket, read and travel more!
