About me

Mr Wimsey is a dual fellowship trained Hand & Upper Limb Surgeon who qualified from Bristol University Medical School in 2000. He undertook both his Basic and Higher Surgical Training in Wessex. In 2009, he completed an AO Trauma Fellowship in Grenoble, France, under the auspices of Professor Saragaglia, where he learnt specific techniques in the management of complex upper limb trauma. In 2012 he undertook a 6 month Sports Medicine fellowship with Mr Peter Hales in Perth, Western Australia, caring for a number of elite athletes as well as learning his pioneering techniques of endoscopic peripheral nerve surgery. He then spent a further 6 months working for Professor Tonkin in Sydney, NSW at the Royal North Shore Hospital, gaining exposure to microsurgery, brachial plexus and congenital hand surgery.
