Mr Mikolaj Kowal


I am an Academic Clinical Fellow in General Surgery based in Leeds. I graduated from the University of Manchester School of Medicine in 2019.

Following completion of the Academic Foundation Programme, I have continued on the NIHR academic pathway with a research focus in colorectal surgery and surgical technologies.

Research interests

My research is primarly aimed at post-operative recovery and patient monitoring.

My current work involves the use of novel technologies to monitor bowel function post-operatively, investigated through early exploratory and clinical trials.
