We are delighted to announce that Anil Vaidya, Consultant Transplant Surgeon at The Churchill Hospital, Oxford, UK has joined the team at 11Health. Anil was the surgeon who performed the transplant on Michael and has been instrumental in his ongoing care.

Anil was also there right from the very beginning when Michael came up with the idea whilst in hospital post-transplant. His appointment completes as very unique team at 11 health whereby patient, surgeon and pharmacist have come together to develop this unique product the Ostom-I Alert. No one knows the potential of the device better than Anil who has seen its development from initial proto type through to finished article.

Anil will also use his industry knowledge and expertise to advise the company of potential areas of opportunity and growth. As an ostomy becomes a more common surgery for many types of bowel conditions Anil’s input will be invaluable.

Of his appointment Anil commented “I am extremely delighted to part of this unique and ground breaking product. As a surgeon you hope that you can improve the quality of life for the patients you treat and the Ostom-i Alert does that and so much more”
