Mr Graham Cheung
Consultant hand and wrist surgeon
MBChB, FRCS (Tr & Orth)
I am a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon at Liverpool University Foundation Trust NHS Hospitals, where my speciality is hand and wrist surgery. I am also an honorary senior lecturer at Edge Hill University.
After being born and raised in Merseyside, I remained in Liverpool to complete my medical degree, graduating in 1999. After staying to complete my basic surgical training in the Mersey region, I then went to the renowned Stoke – Oswestry rotation to do my Specialist registrar training, obtaining his FRCS (Trauma and Orthopaedic) in 2010. It was at Oswestry that I developed an interest in hand surgery and so went on fellowships to the Sheffield Hand Centre and the Pulvertaft Hand Centre in Derby.
I have completed diplomas in orthopaedic engineering and hand surgery at Cardiff and Manchester Universities respectively. During my career I have written book chapters on the basic science of tendons, wrist fractures and tumours of the hand. Also, I have published several peer reviewed journal articles on hand and wrist conditions.
Being a keen and enthusiastic teacher, I am regularly invited to train on courses for senior registrar trainees coming up to their consultant exams on courses at Wrightington, Oswestry and within the Mersey region.
I am an examiner and tutor for the British hand diploma.
As well as treating nerve compressions, arthritis, wrist injuries and tendon disorders, I have a specialist interest in treating people who have been affected by neuromuscular disorders that have affected their hand and wrists. These include cerebral palsy, head injury and strokes.
A new part of my service that I am able to offer is less invasive procedures, such as Endoscopic (Keyhole) Carpal tunnel decompression.
