About me

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 currently striving to introduce patient-rated outcome measures as part of routine outpatient practice and is building on 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 education. He has successfully completed the PGCE module for medical education which is a qualification awarded by the University of Chester. He is in the process of studying for a Masters degree in education. Mr Younis is an Honorary Senior Clinical Lecturer at the University of Central Lancashire School of Medicine. He has overarching responsibility for the surgical education of the medical students in his role as Clinical module Lead for Surgery. Mr Younis was voted the Educator of the Year for year 4 by the medical students for 2018/19. He was also the recipient of the inaugural award for Excellence in Education awarded by Health Education Northwest in 2018.

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.
