About me

Mr John K Dickson Consultant Plastic, Reconstructive and Oncoplastic Surgeon.

Mr Dickson studied medicine at the University of Cambridge where he graduated with honours. He has completed formal UK plastic surgery training, having passed the official UK Plastic Surgery Examination FRCS plast. Over and above this, he has undertaken additional high level European Qualifications in Breast Surgery EBSQ and Hand Surgery EDHS.

He began his surgical training in London at the Royal London Hospital and the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital. He went on to do specialist Plastic Surgery Training on the prestigious South West Peninsula Rotation in Bristol, Exeter and Plymouth. During his training, he was one of only a few trainees in the country to be awarded a National Interface Fellowship in Breast Surgery through competitive national selection based at The Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham. This has afforded him broad training in all aspects of breast surgery including congenital abnormalities, oncology, reconstruction and aesthetics. He has also been awarded National Travelling Fellowships enabling him to spend time in specialist units across the UK and abroad in Toronto, Vienna and Manitoba. He has undertaken a dedicated aesthetic training fellowship at the Cadogan Clinic in Sloane Square (London), helping him to offer the most aesthetic outcomes from surgery.

He has a keen interest in education and innovation and is the Educational Lead for the British Association of Plastic Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgeons Innovation Group. He has produced 24 publications in the scientific literature, one book publication, an educational website for plastic surgery trainees and several educational smart phone apps for medical students.

Mr Dickson likes to give his patients time and listens to their ideas, concerns and expectations. He likes exploring new and better ways to share information and to enhance understanding, learning and recall. His work on education is of relevance to patients and the public too. He always seeks to convey information in a clear way to try to help his patients to understand their treatments including the likely outcome and potential risks.

When he is not at work he enjoys sports and outdoor activities and spending time with friends and family. He loves living in Plymouth and considers it to be a real privilege to work in such a beautiful part of the world.
