Mr Doug Campbell
Consultant Hand and Wrist Surgeon
MB ChB ChM FRCS.Ed FRCS FFSEM
I am a Consultant Hand and Wrist Surgeon in Leeds, UK. I qualified from the University of Dundee in 1986 and completed fellowships in hand surgery in Oxford and Boston, Massachusetts. I was appointed to my NHS consultant post in 1998, leaving this in 2017 to pursue a full-time career in private practice. I completed a two year Master of Surgery degree (ChM) in 2000 and published my thesis on the late effects of hand injury.
I provide a specialist clinical service in the areas of injury reconstruction, sports related problems, and complex conditions of the wrist and hand. My contribution to sports medicine was recognised in 2009 by the award of a Foundation Fellowship of the Faculty of Sports and Exercise Medicine.
I have been performing surgical procedures on the hand and wrist since the early 1990s and undertake over 500 procedures each year.
I have been the chairman of the AO Foundation’s Hand Expert Group since 2005. This is an international group of hand surgeons, scientists, developers and statisticians who design, evaluate and introduce innovative surgical products to manage traumatic injuries of the hand and wrist.
I have been a visiting orthopaedic professor in Australia, Singapore, South Africa, Hong Kong and also to the Royal Society of Medicine, as well as a visiting lecturer to the American Society for Surgery of the Hand (ASSH) and the Belgian Hand Surgery Society. I have chaired courses in Switzerland, Holland, South Africa, Dubai and at the Instructional Course of the ASSH.
I have an established and specialist sports medicine and performance practice in hand and wrist problems, being a member of the medical advisory board of the European PGA Tour as well as acting as specialist medical adviser to Olympic associations, professional soccer clubs, the Scottish Rugby Union, Premiership Rugby Union clubs, international cricket teams, UK Diving, UK Gymnastics and GB Judo. I am also a consultant to the Northern Ballet Theatre and I regularly treat professional musicians, both classical and contemporary.
