Mr Ahid Abood
Consultant Plastic Surgeon
MA Cantab MBBS MSc FRCS (Plast)
I am a Consultant Plastic & Reconstructive surgeon at the Spire Lea and at Addenbrooke's Hospital, Cambridge. Having graduated from Cambridge University I went on to specialise in plastic surgery and have trained in centers both within the UK and internationally. These subspecialty fellowships included a year spent as the microsurgical fellow at the Royal Adelaide Hospital, Australia and a further year of microsurgical fellowship at St Andrews, Broomfield, Essex - a world renowned center for breast reconstruction. During my training, I was also awarded a travelling fellowship to The Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Centre, New York. Following the completion of my training I was entered onto the GMC specialist register for plastic surgery in 2013, prior to be appointed as a Consultant.
In my NHS practice I am the clinical lead for major trauma reconstruction. My main area of interest is in the reconstruction of traumatic injuries with a particular focus on the microsurgical reconstruction of the injured extremity. I am also a core member of the skin cancer multi-disciplinary service. This role involves the treatment and management of all forms of skin cancer which includes being able to offer sentinel lymph node biopsy.
I am the specialty lead for Audit & Governance at Addenbrooke's Hospital, Cambridge. This role involves helping to oversee and deliver a high quality service for our patients.
Alongside my clinical role I am actively involved in the teaching and mentorship of junior doctors and medical students.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Ahid Abood at Spire include:
COVID-19 testing or antibody tests are not available as a standalone service at Spire Cambridge Lea Hospital.
The General Medical Council

I am the Clinical Lead for Major Trauma Reconstruction at Addenbrookes Hospital, Cambridge.
I feel very fortunate to live and work in the wonderful city of Cambridge. When I'm not at work you may see me cycling my children around to various commitments or running along the Cam.
