TikTok Surgeon

Dr Karan Rajan
The social media sensation Karan Rajan is an NHS surgeon, University Lecturer and one-man band battling against those myths delivered by a host of pseudo-experts who inhabit the plethora of largely unregulated internet-based media platforms. With over 5 million TikTok viewers, he has levelled the playing field with those who would seek to spread disinformation. His uniquely appealing and often irreverent take on aspects of Medicine and Surgery is a refreshing antidote to the more traditional and sterile response from a profession largely ill at ease with a mode of communication which is second nature to a modern-day generation. Author of ‘This Book May Save Your Life’ and due to be published in January 2024 it is a hilarious myth-busting survival guide offering health hacks to ‘live better’. Balancing mainstream and social media with NHS work and life at home with a mastiff called Shadow, Surgery International meets up with Rajan to discuss his life in and out of the media limelight.

Dr Karan Rangarajan (MBBS 2014) – better known as Dr Karan Rajan – is an NHS surgeon, a lecturer at Sunderland University, an educator and a storyteller. He is undoubtedly TikTok’s favourite general surgeon and he has more than five million followers online to prove it. His latest venture is as the author of a book This Book May Save Your Life: Everyday Health Hacks to Worry Less and Live Better, which is due to be published in January. It’s a hilarious, myth-busting survival guide that aims to demystify the human body and offers health hacks to help readers ‘worry less and live better’.
