Mark Phillips MA FRCS(Tr&Orth)
Consultant Hand & Wrist Trauma and Orthopaedic Surgeon
Mark began his medical training in Cambridge University. He then trained as a surgeon in south London. His specialist interests were trauma and upper limb surgery.
His first consultant appointment was in 2001 in Woolwich as a general orthopedic surgeon. He then moved to Kings College hospital in 2003 where he progressively specialized in trauma and then hand and wrist surgery.
He left the NHS in 2015 and now only works in the private sector. He continues to specialise in hand and wrist surgery and has an interest in trauma.
Before becoming a consultant, Mark did fellowships in hand and wrist surgery (Queen Victoria Hospital, East Grinstead) and trauma in the University of Pisa, Italy.
Whilst the majority of his work is general hand and wrist surgery, much of which is related to sport and exercise, He has developed a particular interest in treating hand and wrist problems in musicians.
He was very fortunate to inherit much of the hard work previously done by Mr John White and Mr Ian Winspur. Both of these surgeons had spent many years setting up specialist practices for looking after musicians.
Mark is a keen amateur musician himself and plays trumpet in small jazz groups in South London.
