He has over 20 years of experience in advanced laparoscopic gastrointestinal surgery and is trained in robotic-assisted surgery. Dr Jaber also holds the role of Head of Department of the Upper-GI Surgical Unit at Wollongong Public Hospital.
His surgical career has predominantly involved advanced, highly-complex gastric surgery including cancer surgery of the oesophagus, stomach, liver and pancreas, as well as abdominal wall repair (hernia) and general surgery of the gallbladder and other conditions affecting the gastrointestinal tract.
