MA MBB Chir FRCS Eng FRCS Ed FRCS (Plast)
I am a Cambridge based consultant plastic surgeon who studied medicine at both Oxford and Cambridge University. I also spent a period of time as a teacher in anatomy in Cambridge, before undertaking general surgery training for the FRCS qualification.
I went on to specialise in plastic surgery, training in several units including Cambridge, South East Thames and Edinburgh. Along the way I spent some time in research at the world-renowned Medical Research Council in Cambridge. I trained in the subspecialty of cleft lip and palate surgery in Cambridge, Edinburgh, Billericay and Great Ormond Street Hospitals, as well as visiting several units abroad.
I was appointed to Consultant in 1997 and my wide breadth of training allowed me to practice as a Consultant in head and neck cancer, breast reconstruction, hand surgery and skin laser, as well as cleft lip and palate.
I was invited to join (and I'm at present) a primary surgeon with the supraregional cleft team in Cambridge.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Tariq Ahmad at Spire include:
