Mr Jeremy Read
Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon
MBBS, BSc, MSc (Sports medicine), FRCS (Tr & Orth)
I am a fellowship trained orthopaedic hand and wrist surgeon, having under taken sub specialist fellowships in hand surgery both at the New Zealand and South Pacific Regional Hand Unit (Middlemore Hospital) and UCLH. I work as an NHS consultant in the West Hertfordshire Hospitals Trust, offering a full range of trauma and elective care, for hand problems.
I offer percutaneous needle fasciotomy as an outpatient based treatment for Dupuytren's contracture. I am experienced in the arthroscopic management of wrist injuries, as well as the treatment of arthritic conditions of the hand and wrist. I am supported by our highly experienced and specialised hand therapists at both Spire Harpenden and Spire Bushey. Rosalyn Tyreman and Bhasker Reddy support at Spire Bushey and Tina Cockhill at Spire Harpenden.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Jeremy Read at Spire include:
• Hand and wrist arthritis
• Tendon problems
• Sports injuries
Spire Harpenden Hospital is only able to provide Covid-19 tests to patients undergoing surgery at our hospital. Covid-19 testing or antibody tests are not available as a standalone service.

Outside of work I like to spend time with my young family enjoying outdoor pursuits. I am also interested in stereoscopic photography and try to play the guitar!
