Mr Mark Phillips is a consultant orthopaedic surgeon with specialist interest in hand and wrist surgery as well as trauma surgery. Having worked in a major trauma centre (Kings’ College hospital) for many years, he has acquired a host of skills in looking after patients with complex fractures and injuries.
He qualified in Cambridge in 1989 and after basic surgical training and a research post at the Royal Free Hospital, he completed specialist training in Orthopaedics & Trauma on the King’s College Hospital rotation. After higher surgical training, he completed two fellowships: one in Hand Surgery in the Plastic Surgical Department at Queen Victoria Hospital in East Grinstead, and a second in fracture reconstruction in the University of Pisa, Italy.
After 14 years as an NHS Consultant, the last 12 of which at King’s College Hospital, he now exclusively consults privately.
Mr Phillips is an enthusiastic teacher and teaches at all levels from medical student to consultant. As well as convening courses related to complex fracture management, he has been invited to be a faculty member at many meetings around the UK and across Europe.
His main area of academic interest has been related to the management of bone defects created by high-energy trauma and the use of technology such as growth factors to enhance healing.
