Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Sridhar Rathinam at Spire include:
My practice includes all aspects of thoracic surgery with a special interest in parenchyma preserving oncological lung resections, chest wall surgery, minimally invasive lung resections and surgery for emphysema including endobronchial valve and coils.
I qualified and underwent General Surgical Training at the Madras Medical College and General Hospital. I continued my cardiothoracic training in the UK on the British Council Fellowship (Manchester, Glasgow and Coventry) and obtained the fellowship of the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh in 2000. I underwent my higher surgical training in Cardiothoracics with a focus on thoracic surgery in the West Midlands Cardiothoracic Training programme (FRCSEd (CTh) 2006) in Birmingham, then underwent a period of research studying the Proteomics in Lung Cancer at the University of Birmingham. I was appointed as a Consultant Thoracic Surgeon in Leicester in 2009.
I am a keen surgical trainer and am faculty member in national cardiothoracic courses. I am the Cardiothoracic Training Programme Director for the East Midlands overseeing the training of young surgeons in the Specialty of Cardiothoracic surgery.
I am actively involved in the assessment and quality assurance of surgical training being a member of the Specialty Advisory Committee. I am member of the National Selection Panel for trainee appointment in cardiothoracic surgery and Core surgical training. I examine medical students for the University of Leicester and examine for the Intercollegiate Speciality Board Examination in Cardiothoracic surgery Consultant qualification exam (Part III).
As the National Tutor for Thoracic Surgery (2013-16), Society for Cardiothoracic Surgery for Great Britain and Ireland he with Mr Moorjani (Cardiac Surgery Tutor) has developed an innovative portfolio of 12 structured courses that had been designed and implemented to mirror the ISCP curriculum for nationally-appointed Cardiothoracic Surgery Trainees provided free of charge which is the first of its kind in the world.
I have presented in national and international meetings and have regularly published my work in peer reviewed journals. My NHS outcomes from 2014 can be found at: https://scts.org/consultant/rathinam-sridhar/
My philosophy is to see the smile of my patients after their surgery and to make a little difference to a patient with cancer. To give them the hope of life is gratifying.
