Professional profile

Mr Patrick Gillespie is a consultant plastic and hand surgeon at Spire Cambridge Lea Hospital and Addenbrookes Hospital. His practice includes hand and wrist surgery, plastic surgery for burns and scars, aesthetic breast and abdominal surgery (male and female), cosmetic surgery after weight loss and cosmetic or reconstructive surgery for skin cancer and benign lumps & bumps. He trained in medicine and surgery at Cambridge and Oxford Universities until 1993, then in Bristol, Cambridge, Oxford and London. After full UK-based plastic surgery training, his fellowship training involved working with internationally recognised surgeons in the UK and overseas.

He was awarded a British Society for Surgery of the Hand (BSSH) overseas Fellowship and then a Hand Surgery Interface Fellowship working with five leading plastics and orthopaedic surgeons for 18 months prior to becoming a consultant. Mr Gillespie travels regularly throughout Europe to visit and operate with leading surgeons in order to keep up to date with the latest improvements in surgical techniques, including Paris, Strasbourg, Lyon and Barcelona in the last three years. He was the clinical governance lead for the plastic surgery department in Addenbrookes Hospital for four years and hence has a formal role as well as professional responsibility for the safety and quality of surgery.
