Mr Jeffrey Reid
Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon
I am a fully qualified Orthopaedic Surgeon with a specialist interest in shoulder, elbow and upper limb surgery. I specialise in arthroscopic (keyhole) surgery. My clinics are structured to swiftly form accurate diagnoses, and apply focused treatment. My practice is audited to maintain standards of excellence in patient care.
I qualified from the world-renowned Residency Training Program at the University of Toronto, Canada in 2003. I came to Scotland specifically to complete Specialist Fellowship Training in Upper Limb Surgery at the Edinburgh Royal Infirmary and the Glasgow Royal Infirmary. Since 2005 I have been a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon in the Edinburgh Royal Infirmary, where I perform elective upper limb and trauma surgeries.
I am the Training Program Committee Chair for the South East Scotland Deanery, responsible for the training of all Specialist Registrars in Edinburgh. I find this and my other academic activities keep me up to date with latest advances in my field. In 2010 I joined my colleagues as a member of the Edinburgh Orthopaedic Specialist group.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Jeffrey Reid at Spire include:
Royal College of Surgeons of Canada
British Orthopaedic Association
Contracture release, rotator cuff disease, complex upper limb fracture reconstruction.
I live in south-central Edinburgh with my wife and three school-aged children. My activities outside of work include mountain biking, fly-fishing and hill walking.
