I am a Consultant Plastic Surgeon and Hand Surgeon based in central and west London.
My private practice is based at the London Hand and Wrist Unit at the Wellington Hospital (St Johns Wood)
and the Chelsea Outpatient Centre (Kings Road, Chelsea). I also see private patients at the New Victoria
Hospital (Kingston) and at West Middlesex University Hospital (Isleworth).
I specialise in the treatment of the whole spectrum of hand (includingupper limb) conditions and injuries,
including carpal tunnel syndrome,
Dupuytren's disease (finger contractures),
trigger finger, ganglions and
arthritis / pain in the small joints of the hand, as well as
more complex, less common hand problems.
Many hand surgery problems may be managed in the clinic without surgery, for example needle fasciotomy (apronectomy)
or Xiapex (collagenase injection) for Dupuytren's disease, and steroid injections for joint and tendon problems.
I treat many patients with hand injuries such as fractures, joint injuries,
tendon injuries, nerve injuries
and lacerations / wounds. I have a particular interest in sports
injuries of the hand and treat a variety of elite sportsmen. Treatment of hand
injuries may involve surgery or in many cases non-surgical treatment by my Hand Therapy
team. I am fortunate to work with an excellent hand therapy team as part of my hand surgery practice.
If you have a hand problem or injury and are considering private treatment, I welcome any enquiries
or questions you have and I can be contacted directly by email,
or via my Secretary Carole on 020 8321 5440.
