Expertise in plastic, reconstructive, and aesthetic surgery in Cambridge

Ian Grant: consultant in plastic surgery, & hand surgery


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.

The COVID-19 pandemic has changed some of the ways in which we can work. At the moment consultations are limited to 30 minutes, patients cannot bring a friend, family-member, or partner into the hospital. We are also unable to offer "see and treat" appointments for skin lesions without a prior "on line video" consultation or exchange of images (my secretary Wendy ca explain how best to send an image or how to arrange a video consultation.

Almost all surgeons are having COVID testing every 2 weeks. Please do not come to the hospital if you might have COVID 19 symptoms or if you have a potential COVI 19 contact.
