Prof. John Nicholls to kick-off RLG 2024 webcast season

We are delighted to announce that we will be kicking off our webcast season for 2024 with a talk from Professor John Nicholls, considered to be the the father of the ileo anal pouch (J Pouch).

The Red Lion Group will be repeating its popular webcast series in 2024, providing an opportunity for J Pouch patients to see and hear from the foremost experts in the field of J-pouch surgery and the challenges of living with a J-pouch. As in previous years, each talk will be followed by an interactive Q&A so a chance to put your questions to the experts.

The first event this year will be on Tuesday 16th April at 7:30 pm (BST) and will feature the eminent colorectal surgeon Professor John Nicholls, who will need no introduction to many of you. Not only was he the co-inventor, with SIr Alan Parks, of the procedure for ileal-pouch anal anastomosis (IPAA), but he has been responsible for the creation of more pouches than anyone on the planet earning him the sobriquet “the pouch king“.

Professor John Nicholls is a retired British colorectal surgeon, Emeritus Consultant Surgeon at St Mark’s Hospital London and Professor of Colorectal Surgery at Imperial College London. He is also a Patron of the Red Lion Group.

The Red Lion Group webcasts are FREE and open to all, but pre-registration is required to receive the meeting link. You can register using the “Register now” button below.
