Following graduation, he returned to the West of Scotland for his training, eventually earning his Specialist Consultant qualification in 2003 (FRCS Gen Surg, Upper GI).

Mr Kasem’s expertise in laparoscopic surgery, commonly known as keyhole surgery, is a particular area of interest. He consistently attends specialist conferences, staying updated on the effectiveness of different treatments and the latest techniques, be they traditional, laparoscopic, or novel. This extensive knowledge enables him to discuss various options with his patients, ensuring they make informed decisions about the most suitable and effective treatment for their condition.
