Mr Richard Pinder

Consultant Plastic Surgeon

MBchB, MRCS, FRCS (Plast), DipHandSurg

I am a Consultant Plastic Surgeon with a special interest in hand and reconstructive surgery. I joined the Hull & East Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust as a Consultant Plastic Surgeon in June 2014.

I am a fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons, and a member of both the British Association of Plastic Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgeons (BAPRAS) and the British Society for Surgery of the Hand (BSSH).

I graduated from the University of Leeds Medical School and completed my plastic surgery training in Yorkshire. I undertook specialist fellowships in Leeds and at the Birmingham Hand Centre during which time I achieved The Diploma in Hand Surgery through the University of Manchester and the BSSH.

I am an accomplished general plastic surgeon, and have a special interest in hand surgery and reconstructive surgery for skin cancer. During my fellowship at the Birmingham Hand Centre I gained considerable experience in the management of Dupuytren’s Disease with Collagenase injections.

I believe in holistic patient care and recognises the importance of enabling patients to make informed decisions about which treatment options are best for them. I am committed to delivering high quality care from the outset.
