Dr Libor Hurt
was born in the Czech Republic and moved to the UK aged 11. He began working as a hospital porter in the summer holidays and evenings after college and carried on doing this whilst reading Medical Sciences at De Montfort University. Following this, he pursued a further MSc by Research in Learning Technology there, before eventually going on to study medicine at Swansea University. He rotated through several medical and surgical specialities and ultimately began working as a general surgery speciality trainee. Dr Hurt enjoys teaching and mentoring, actively participating whenever given the opportunity to do so. He presented his research at both a national and international level on a wide variety of topics such as antibiotic treatment of appendicitis during the COVID-19 pandemic and outcomes of hepatic metastasectomy in patients with anal squamous cell carcinoma. In his spare time, Dr Hurt enjoys exploring the diverse Welsh landscape.
