Mr Nizam Mamode

Professor of Transplant Surgery
Mr Nizam Mamode


Mr Nizam Mamode is a Professor of Transplant Surgery who works in the Nephrology department. His team has the largest programme in Europe, with around 50 paediatric transplants a year. He specialises in complex cases, with children referred from around the UK and overseas when centres have deemed transplantation to be impossible. 

He has set up the only paediatric antibody incompatible transplantation programme, which allows transplantation of children who have developed antibodies from previous transplantation, or whose blood groups do not match their donor. 

He has introduced the first programme in the world for 3D printing copies of donor organs and children’s abdomens, in order to help plan surgical approaches in difficult cases. 

He runs several large, national studies and recently performed the UK’s first robotic transplant. He has published over 70 papers, one book and three book chapters on transplantation. Mr Mamode is on the editorial board for the journal ‘Transplantation’ as well as an expert reviewer for the Centre for Evidence in Transplantation and a reviewer for the American Journal of Transplantation, Transplant International and Nephrology, Dialysis and Transplantation.
