Talvinder Singh (Vin) is a Consultant Trauma and Orthopaedic Surgeon at Sandwell and West Birmingham Hospitals NHS Trust who specialises in Upper Limb Surgery and General Trauma. His subspecialty interest includes hand, wrist, elbow, shoulder and microvascular surgery. His private consulting rooms and practice are based at The Priory Hospital, Birmingham and The Meriden Hospital, Coventry.
Having graduated from the University of the West Indies and later completing his Basic Surgical Training at the Royal Wolverhampton Hospitals NHS Trust, his interest in Upper Limb Surgery grew during his Hand Research Registrar years at University Hospital Birmingham, where he published widely accredited research papers thus gaining him a reputation in Trauma and Orthopaedic Surgery.
Not long after, he was offered a National Training Number within the Southwest London Training Programme. During his training years, he travelled to Coimbatore, India to complete the Medartis Hand Travelling Fellowship at Ganga Hospital. He also completed his Microsurgical Skills Course during this fellowship under the guidance of world-renowned Dr Rajasabapathy. After completing Trauma and Orthopaedic Surgery Training, Vin undertook a 4-month General Trauma Fellowship at Brighton Major Trauma Centre, before embarking on two prestigious Australian Orthopaedic Association (AOA) approved Upper Limb and Microvascular Surgery Fellowships at the Princess Alexandra Hospital (PAH) and Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital (RBWH), Brisbane, Australia for 2 years under great names like Professor Mark Ross and Dr Chris Blenkin. Vin’s thirst for knowledge prompted him to complete the European Diploma in Hand Surgery in 2017. He maintains a surgical logbook with more than 8,000 cases and has completed more than 40 finger replantation and revascularisation.
Vin is the Fragility Fracture Lead in his current NHS Trust and collaborates extensively with surgeons from the Plastic Surgery fraternity. He is currently working on his dream to form the Black Country Upper Limb collaborative service. Vin strives to provide the best service and care for his patients and has consistently received good feedback from patients and colleagues throughout his 20-year career in Medicine due to his ability to connect and communicate well with patients, peers and all other healthcare staff.
He currently trains a National Trauma and Orthopaedics Specialist Trainee from the West Midlands Rotation and supervises three Foundation Trainees. Above that, he is a participant in the Regional Specialist Training and continues to lecture medical students from Aston Medical School and the University of Birmingham.
Vin also serves as a Medical Consultant for a charitable organisation called United Sikhs; providing medical aid on reconnaissance missions in Malaysia and Indonesia. He is married and is a doting father of two.
