Mr Edwin Prashanth Jesudason
Consultant hand and orthopaedic surgeon
MB, ChB, MSc, FRCSEd (Tr & Orth), Dip Hand Surg (Br)
In March 2012, I was appointed as consultant hand and orthopaedic surgeon at Ysbyty Gwynedd, Bangor, North Wales. I completed my orthopaedic training in Manchester and Lancashire, with a 12-month advanced training post in hand surgery, based at the tertiary hand units of Salford and Wythenshawe, where I obtained considerable experience in microsurgery and plastic surgery.
In 2011, I completed the British Society for Surgery of the Hand (BSSH), University of Manchester Diploma in Hand Surgery, and was the first consultant hand surgeon to be appointed in Wales with this qualification.
My trauma interests include nerve injuries, complex upper limb fractures, flexor tendon repair and reconstruction. My elective practice is predominantly made up of complex hand and wrist disorders, with particular interests in Dupuytrens disease, small joint replacement in the hand, sports injuries and disorders affecting the musician's hand.
I ams a keen teacher and an educational supervisor to trainee junior doctors in Ysbyty Gwynedd.
My research interests include digital motion capture of hand function and dysfunction, the use of computational visualisation to aid rehabilitation and record data.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Edwin Prashanth Jesudason at Spire include:
I am a family man and enjoy spending his free time with his wife and daughter. I enjoy getting out and about in the beautiful North Wales countryside.
My interests include hill walking, surfing and photography. I am also keen musician and an accomplished classical pianist.
