Bruno Lorenzi

Mr Bruno Lorenzi MD PhD

Consultant General, Upper GI and
Laparoscopic Surgeon

At Essex Surgical Specialists we specialise in providing day case and ‘keyhole’ surgery.  We have successfully performed thousands of day case and laparoscopic procedures for conditions such as hernia and gallstones.


Our Consultants, surgeon Bruno Lorenzi and anaesthetist David O’Hara, have years of expertise and will look after you before, during and after your procedure, always putting your well-being and safety first.


Our Business Manager, Sam Thornton will assist you through the process in a friendly, professional and timely manner. We pride ourselves on giving you expert and safe care keeping your treatment as simple as possible and the cost realistic.


We accept referrals for self-pay and insured patients covered by BUPA, AXA PPP, Aviva, Vitality, CIGNA, WPA, Healix and CS Healthcare. For self-pay patients, we offer fixed fees with no hidden extras.

Our Aim

Mr Lorenzi founded Essex Surgical Specialists in 2005 with the aim to improve the experience of patients in Essex receiving specialist surgical care.

We are dedicated to working with our patients to offer a safe operation in expert hands and a smooth and timely process.


Bruno, our surgeon, and David, our anaesthetist, will give you an honest opinion regarding your suitability for surgery, putting your wellbeing and safety first.  They will help you in choosing the most appropriate type of procedure and anaesthetic for your surgery and prepare you for your operation.


Bruno and David have been working together to develop specific surgical and anaesthetic techniques to make sure you are comfortable and ready to go back home just few hours after surgery.

Niven and Aimen, both anaesthetists, are also part of the team, and they may be looking after you on the day of your procedure.


Over 90% of our patients undergoing hernia or gallstones surgery go home safely and happily on the day of the procedure.


Sam, our Business Manager, will be your first point of contact. She will organise and arrange your hospital stay, supply you with the relevant codes (if you are privately insured) and liaise with you around admission and outpatient times.


Our reputation has built up over the years and we are extremely proud of the excellent feedback received from our patients.
