Por qué es un doctor de primer nivel/Professional statement/Perché è un dottore di prim’ordine

Mr Michael Stechman is an experienced endocrine and general surgeon based in Cardiff. He currently sees patients at Spire Hospital Cardiff and performs keyhole surgery for groin and abdominal hernia and gallstones, as well as thyroid and parathyroid surgery.

His specialist interest is endocrine surgery (surgery of the thyroid, parathyroid and adrenal glands), which includes thyroid surgery for thyroid cancer and benign thyroid lumps, overactive thyroid disease, and parathyroid removal for high blood calcium. Please check with your GP in case they advise you to see an endocrinologist rather than an endocrine and thyroid surgeon.

He is also an experienced general surgeon including day case keyhole gallbladder and hernia surgery.

Mr Stechman undertook his higher surgical training in Oxford where he completed an MD with the Molecular Endocrinology group and a national Royal College of Surgeons (RCS) Fellowship in endocrine surgery. He has previously been the Quality and Safety Lead for General surgery on the Cardiff and Vale University Health Board. In addition to his clinical work, he is also Director of Year five for the Medicine MBBCh course at Cardiff University Medical School, which allows him to train and assess medical students as they prepare to become junior doctors. He is the current honorary secretary of the British Association of Endocrine and Thyroid Surgeons (BAETS), the national society that represents thyroid surgeons in the UK.

He has co-authored more than 50 articles in peer-reviewed journals and contributed to several chapters in surgical textbooks. Mr Stechman has also co-hosted a webinar series on endocrine surgery topics in collaboration with the Royal College of Surgeons and BAETS.
