At The Colorectal & Peritoneal Oncology Centre (CPOC), he specialises in complex minimally invasive (keyhole) and open surgical techniques to treat early, advanced, and recurrent tumours of the appendix, colon, rectum, and anus, including those that have spread to the lining of the abdomen (peritoneum), for which he performs cytoreductive surgery (CRS) with hyperthermic intra-peritoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC). Over 150 CRS/HIPEC procedures are carried out at The Christie CPOC each year. He specialises in retroperitoneal sarcomas, is the endoscopy lead for the trust, is a national laparoscopic colorectal surgery trainer, and is the consent lead for The Christie NHSFT.

Mr Aziz has developed evidence synthesis techniques to better guide healthcare decision-making and published over 100 peer-reviewed research papers, some of which have been used by institutions such as the UK National Institute of Clinical Excellence (NICE) in their guidance. He was a member of the 2007 ‘Healthcare for London-A Framework for Action’ team reviewing the capital’s healthcare needs for the next decade. He has an interest in translating biomedical research into new technologies for patient benefit and has obtained research grants from Innovate UK, Medical Research Council, Technology Strategy Board, and National Institute for Healthcare Research to this effect.

He has authored numerous articles in medical journals on topics related to his areas of expertise and has presented at national and international conferences. He is also a reviewer for several medical journals.
