Private Practice

Dr Middleton consults private patients at the Nuffield hospital and Spire Cambridge Lea hospitals in Cambridge and has done so since 1996. His private practice mirrors that of his NHS practice with the exception of intestinal transplantation which is only offered through the NHS. In addition to clinic consultations he also has inpatients and undertakes colonoscopy, gastroscopy, enteroscopy and gastro-intestinal physiology.

He has recently introduced a new wireless method (BRAVO) for detecting and measuring acid reflux (heartburn). This avoids the need for a nasal catheter and allows 2 days or more of recording whilst patients can undertake their normal activities. Dr Middleton has also introduced a new noninvasive method for measuring the function of the entire gastrointestinal tract using a small highly sophisticated pill sized capsule which is swallowed and transmits information about the function of the stomach, small and large intestine by wireless connection to an external receiver carried by the patient to give an accurate assessment of the function of the digestive system.  He has also just completed a study to develop a new steroid tablet for patients with Crohn's and colitis which has fewer side effects than conventional steroids.
