Ian Grant: consultant in plastic surgery, & hand surgery


The COVID-19 pandemic represents a unique challenge for all of us. I have postponed operations planned for the months of April, May, and June of 2020.

I have switched clinic visits largely to video or phone consultations - I am happy to use Zoom ( or FaceTime or Skype to carry out consulations as best as possible.

My office (01223 550881 can arrange a time with you and the best way to get in-touch. The insurance providers seem happy with this. I will document the consultation and write to you and your doctors in the norman manner.

A good quality photograph of the probelm (well lit and in focus) is helpful (e-mailed to I have posted a guide to on-line consultation on youtube:

I will happily carry out medicolegal work with review of the notes, and a video consultation. Please contact my office to arrange where and how to send any relevant notes (ideally e-mail notes using drop box or similar).

I am working unfamiliar hours in the NHS. I am sorry if your care has been delayed, I appreciate how tough this must be: when this over we will pick up the pieces and help as quickly as we can. Feel free to keep in-touch with my office.


I am based in Cambridge working as a Consultant Plastic Surgeon in the NHS and privately. My areas of expertise are plastic surgery (including skin cancer, and microsurgery), cosmetic surgery, reconstruction after trauma, nerve surgery, hand surgery, and children’s hand surgery.

I have been a Consultant at Addenbrooke’s Hospital Cambridge since 2005. I trained in medicine at Oxford University Medical School, and qualified as a doctor in 1991. I trained as a plastic surgeon in London (Mount Vernon Hospital), Salisbury, East Grinstead, and Cambridge, and undertook fellowship training in hand, and micro-surgery in Leeds and Melbourne Australia.

I am an Honorary Senior Clinical Tutor for Cambridge University. I was the clinical director for plastic surgery at Addenbrooke's Hospital from 2010-2014.  I am the director of an annual two-day course on hand surgery, and another on reconstructive surgery. I am regularly invited to lecture on plastic surgery, hand surgery, and peripheral nerve surgery.
