Background Information 
Professional profile:

Matthew Smith grew up in Kent before studying Medicine at Manchester University; he undertook his basic surgical training in the Manchester area and Specialist Registrar training on the North West Rotation.

During his Specialist Registrar training he gained a diploma in Orthopaedics and Rehabilitation Technology (Dundee University, passed with Merit). After passing the FRCS (Tr & Orth) exam in 2006, and becoming a Fellow of The Royal College of Surgeons of England, he specialised in Upper Limb Surgery by undertaking 3 fellowship posts. The Fellowship posts in Wrightington Hospital and The University of Lancashire Teaching Hospitals (Preston and Chorley) were completed prior to the completion of his training and award of Certificate of Completion of Training leading to entrance to General Medical Council’s Specialist Register.

He delayed taking up a consultant post by undertaking Peter Brownson’s Fellowship within The Liverpool Upper Limb Unit and needless to say he never left! He was appointed as a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon at The Royal Liverpool and Broadgreen University Hospitals NHS Trust in July 2009, taking up post as a Specialist Shoulder and Elbow Surgeon within the Liverpool Upper limb Unit (an internationally recognised centre of excellence in the field of shoulder and elbow surgery) in September 2009.  He specialises in both arthroscopic (keyhole) and open surgery of the shoulder and elbow with strong emphasis on shoulder and elbow trauma.

He has been working with the team at Spire Liverpool since September 2009. Mr Smith maintains active research interests looking into a variety of shoulder and elbow conditions having published in peer reviewed journals on topics such as “The Frozen Shoulder” and “Proximal Humeral Fractures”.

He is the course director for a national clinical examination course and teaches/lectures at a number of other national and international courses.
