Mr Robert Farnell
Consultant Hand and Wrist Surgeon
MB BS, FRCS
I am a consultant hand and wrist surgeon at Spire Leeds and at Leeds General Infirmary. I have worked as a specialist consultant surgeon since 2002, treating conditions affecting the hand and wrist.
I offer a comprehensive range of treatment for conditions affecting the hand and the wrist. I am able to provide an experienced specialist opinion and subsequent management, including those conditions that are not considered straight forward.
In addition to managing the local population, I provide a service for the management of complex conditions which are referred from other surgeons throughout the region. I am routinely asked by my colleagues in the surrounding hospitals to provide my opinion and to take over the management of difficult and complex cases.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Robert Farnell at Spire include:
Spire Leeds 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.
