Mr Cameron Hatrick
Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon
MA (Cantab), MB, BChir, FRCS (Tr&Orth)
I was trained at Clare College, Cambridge and St Thomas’ Hospital, London qualifying in 1990. I underwent Basic Surgical Training on the St Bartholomew’s rotation, London and then specialised in Orthopaedics on the South East Thames Orthopaedic rotation.
I undertook two fellowships in Sydney, Australia, sub-specialising in shoulder and hand surgery.
In November 1999 I was awarded the Walter Mercer Gold Medal and the Arthur Edward Burton Memorial Prize for my performance in the Intercollegiate Specialty Examination in Orthopaedic Surgery. The following year I was appointed as the British Orthopaedic Association ‘Young Ambassador’ to the Hong Kong Orthopaedic Association at their annual congress.
In 2001 I was appointed as a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon at the Royal Sussex County Hospital, Brighton. I have developed a successful multidisciplinary, ‘one-stop’ shoulder clinic based in Lewes Victoria Hospital.
I was the Lead Orthopaedic Surgeon for the Sussex Orthopaedic Treatment Centre (SOTC) from its opening in 2006 until September 2009. Since September 2009 I have been the Lead Orthopaedic Consultant for BSUH and have overseen the growth of the department to 21 consultants, the acquisition of the SOTC by the Trust and the development of the Level 1 Trauma Unit.
Teaching and Training is a particular interest of mine. I am a faculty member of the Watanabe Club, which runs regular shoulder arthroscopy courses around the UK introducing surgeons to arthroscopic shoulder surgery and teaching advanced techniques to established surgeons. I have lectured at international meetings and lectures regularly at Brighton and Sussex Medical School and on the South East Thames Orthopaedic Rotation. I have set up and run an annual open surgical skills course and, in 2005, I was appointed a Visiting Fellow at the Brighton University Faculty of Health in recognition of my contribution to post-graduate teaching.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Cameron Hatrick at Spire include:
