Mr Rhodes's undergraduate training was in London where he had his first taste of orthopaedics at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital in Stanmore. His postgraduate surgical training was in Liverpool where he had the opportunity to work with Prof Leslie Klenerman and later with Prof Simon Frostick. In this period he developed an interest in shoulder and elbow disorders and undertook a fellowship in Seattle with Prof Frederick Matsen and Doug Harryman where he gained further experience with arthroscopic surgery.
Mr Rhodes has been a Consultant in Lancaster since May 1999. His elective work is now entirely focussed on upper limb surgery but he also has a general trauma practice. He regularly performs shoulder and elbow replacements for trauma and arthritis and arthroscopic procedures on the shoulder. He routinely performs soft tissue procedures in the hand including carpal tunnel release, trigger finger release and operations for Dupuytren's contracture.
Also he has a special interest in the history of surgery and is the Chairman of the Lancaster Medical Museum group. His leisure interests include table tennis and music.
