Ms Lisa Tourret
Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon
MB ChB, MSc, FRCS (Lon), FRCS (Tr&Orth)
I am a Consultant Hand and Upper Limb Surgeon, based at the Brighton and Sussex University Hospitals Trust. I see and treat all aspects of musculo-skeletal conditions affecting the hands, wrists, and elbows, whether inflammatory, wear-and-tear arthritis or sports injury related.
I qualified in 1991 and successfully completed my higher surgical training in the North East of England, subsequently undertaking fellowship posts in New Zealand, specialising in shoulder/elbow and wrist/hand surgery, before becoming a consultant at Sunderland Royal Hospital in 2006.
I have a continued interest in undergraduate education and during my appointment as a consultant in the North East I accepted a post as Associate Lecturer at Newcastle University Medical School.
Originating from the South East, I have been fortunate enough to relocate to Sussex and use my previous experience to establish a regional hand service for the Brighton and Sussex area, whilst continuing to contribute to postgraduate and undergraduate medical training.
I have over six years’ experience as a consultant and previously established a successful and thriving private practice, based at Spire Washington Hospital.
I offer one-to-one consultations and elective treatments and surgeries for all aspects of upper limb conditions and injuries.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Ms Lisa Tourret at Spire include:
Hand and wrist surgery: Orthopaedic surgery: Upper limb surgery, hand surgery, soft tissue injury repair and reconstruction, sports-related upper limb injuries
Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons
Member of the British Orthopaedic Association
Member of the British Society for Surgery of the Hand
Member of the British Elbow and Shoulder Society
Member of British Medical Association
As a keen sports competitor, I understand the importance of physical wellbeing to achieve a healthy work/life balance.
My interests include long-distance running, cycling, cross-training, as well as hiking and camping.
I continue to raise money for charity, competing in half and full marathons, finding that events are a great motivator.
I have travelled extensively around the world; although equally enjoy exploring closer to home and spending time with family and friends.
