What attracted you to medicine?
Surgery is a discipline where mixing scientific endeavour and human empathy helps people to have better, longer and healthier lives. As a surgeon I always aspired to practice it with decency, kindness, honesty and integrity.

What encouraged you to specialise in endocrinology?
Hormone functioning has always fascinated me and this field combines the need for precision, rational thinking and clear judgement.
What keeps you busy in your personal life?
Reading, writing, playing and listening to music, and my family.
“I have referred many patients for endocrine surgery to Tom Kurzawinski, both in the NHS (at University College and Great Ormond Street Hospitals) and in the independent-sector (at The London Clinic). His surgical skills, honed in a very rigorous unit, are among the best I have witnessed, with superb outcomes. He is a wonderfully clear and caring communicator.”Professor S L Chew, consultant at OneWelbeck
