My qualification is Consultant Plastic and Hand and Wrist Surgeon since 2007 working in Salisbury Foundation Trust Hospital and now Birmingham Children’s Hospital. Further I hold a honorary consultant post in the Pulvertaft Hand Centre in Derby. Next to my NHS commitment, I have been in private practice since 2008. I trained internationally (Germany, Ireland, Singapore) and I qualified as a specialist in General Surgery 2000 and Plastic Surgery 2006 and Hand Surgery 2007. I joined the wrist arthroscopy tour 2008 and did advanced training in wrist arthroscopy in France and UK. I am subspecialist in paediatric plastic, hand and wrist surgery.
My interest within cosmetic surgery is amongst others body shaping (tummy tuck), pinnaplasty, breast surgery (augmentation, reduction, uplift), labial surgery, skin lesions and scar revisions.
My interest within Hand Surgery is upper limb, hand and wrist surgery (osteo-, rheumatoid-, post traumatic- arthritis, ganglia, carpal tunnel, cubital tunnel, Dupuytren’s contracture, trigger finger and thumb base pain), as well as, wrist arthroscopy and paediatric/congenital upper limb surgery.
Within Plastic Surgery I see patients with post traumatic scar conditions, skin lesions, as well as general plastic surgery procedures. I further treat children with a variety of plastic surgery conditions.
I hold a Master degree in Healthcare Management at the University of Mannheim/Germany and a degree on European Healthcare Leadership at the INSEAD Business School in Fontainebleau/France. I was granted an award for the Leadership Scheme by the Health Foundation/London in 2009.
I have been invited internationally to lecture (France, Argentina, Germany, US). I have published several peer reviewed articles, co-authored three book chapters in international hand surgery and have given numerous presentations internationally.
I have taken part in numerous courses and conferences in hand surgery, microsurgery and aesthetic surgery throughout my training internationally.
