Ian Grant: plastic surgeon

 I hope this website provides useful information for patients and colleagues.

Training to become a plastic surgeon: was one of the best decisions I have ever made. Each patient has a unique problem. Every consultation, every decision, and every operation, is a one off challenge.


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.
