Ian Grant: consultant in plastic surgery, & hand surgery


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 since 2005. Private patients can be seen at the Nuffield and the Spire Lea Hospitals in Cambridge. Appointments can be booked directly through my office phoning 01223 550881, e-mail:, or through the private hospitals.

I trained in medicine at Oxford University Medical School, and qualified as a doctor in 1991. I was awarded a Doctorate in Medicine for research on skin biology and wound healing. 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 was awarded the European Diploma i Hand Surgery.

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 was the founding 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. I am a tutor for the British Diploma in Hand Surgery and am a supervisor for fellowship trainees in hand surgery.

I am part of the regional skin cancer multidisciplinary team: I use a dermatoscope to improve the diagnosis and management of skin cancer.

I have been awarded the Cardiff University / Bond Solon Certificate of Excellence for expert reporting.

I have completed the Royal College of Surgeons Certification in Cosmetic Surgery.

Some of my work at Addenbrookes hospital was shown in the BBC series "Surgeons on Edge of Life"
