About me

Mr Kambiz Hashemi first qualified from Birmingham University Medical School in 1973 before pursuing his postgraduate training at United Birmingham Hospitals, including Birmingham Accident Hospital where he conducted a study on Trauma, leading to his MD thesis.
It was in 1985 when Mr Hashemi took the post of Consultant in Emergency Medicine with a focused interest in hand surgery, starting the first open acute hand clinic in Surrey. This clinic focused on acute conditions, growing to cover all aspects of upper limb disorders b y 1986. Since then the hand clinic at Croydon University Hospital (CUH) has been providing a comprehensive service for the acute and chronic upper limb disorders, working closely with Rheumatology and Neurology services at CUH.
Mr Hashemi has been greatly important in the development and expansion of the occupational hand therapy service, now forming an essential component of patient care. He is a member of the British and the European Society for Surgery of the Hand. His experience and knowledge has allowed him to publish over 60 publications in scientific medical journals for his extensive research projects and has always been involved with training and higher education throughout his career. He has chaired the Specialist Training Committee at the London Deanery for many years and is a member of a number of committees at the London Deanery, some of which are academic, training and educational committees. He has also worked as an examiner for the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh, remaining as an examiner today for the College of Emergency Medicine.
