Mr Fizan Younis was appointed as a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon at the East Lancashire Hospitals NHS Trust in February 2013. His elective practice is exclusively Hand, Wrist and Elbow Surgery. He is the surgical lead for the Care of the Dying Pathway project. This group is committed to improving the care of patients at the end-stage of their illnesses. He was also part of the Transforming Trauma Care project that has resulted in remarkable reductions in waiting times for fracture clinic appointments. He is currently striving to introduce patient-rated outcome measures as part of routine outpatient practice and is building on the his existing work on 'Wide-Awake' surgery at the trust. This would mean that a greater proportion of patients would have their surgery under local anaesthetic allowing them to return home on the day of surgery.
Mr Younis graduated from the University of Wales College of Medicine in Cardiff in 2002. He completed his basic and higher surgical training in the Northwest of England. This included an Upper Limb Fellowship at the Royal Bolton Hospital. He followed this up with international fellowships to leading Upper Limb Units in Nice and Zurich.
He was awarded an AO Travelling Trauma fellowship to McGill University Hospital in Montreal, Canada. Here he received advanced training in the treatment of upper limb Injuries. He was recently awarded a Training Programme Travelling Award by the Federation of European Societies for Surgery of the Hand (FESSH). He spent one month at the world famous Institut de la Main in Paris gaining specialist training in wrist arthroscopy techniques as part of this award.
His specialist interests include Hand and Wrist Injuries, Dupuytren’s contracture treatment and Wrist arthroscopy.
Mr Younis is an enthusiastic trainer and is heavily involved in undergraduate and postgraduate training. He has successfully completed the PGCE module for medical education which is a qualification awarded by the University of Chester. He is an OSCE examiner at the University of Manchester and holds the European Diploma of Hand Surgery. He is the Mentor for Foundation doctors in Trauma and Orthopaedics at the East Lancashire Hospitals NHS Trust.
His current research interests include the use of Patient-Rated Outcome Measures in clinical practice and Collagenase injections in Dupuytren’s contracture treatment. He has a number of presentations and publications to his name.
Outside work Mr Younis is an enthusiastic cricketer and is working towards his black belt in Freestyle Karate and Kickboxing.
