John Whittle
Assistant Professor of Anesthesiology

I am a UK trained Anesthesiologist with special interests in Critical Care and Perioperative Medicine.  I aim to combine my clinical practice with my research interests to reduce the risks associated with Major Surgery for all patients, but especially those at highest risk of complications.

My research interests are in preoperative optimization, including exercise and nutritional prehabilitation, as well as investigating how subclinical autonomic dysfunction impacts on key outcomes including cardiac performance and the immune/inflammatory response to surgery.

I am a founder and director of Trainees with an Interest in Perioperative Medicine and am on the Faculty for the UCL Masters in Perioperative Medicine Degree.
