Professional profile

Clinic availability: Spire Hartswood Wednesday mornings.

Mr Philip Mathew is a consultant orthopaedic surgeon at Spire Hartswood Hospital in Brentwood, Essex and Spire London East Hospital, Redbridge, Essex offering hand and wrist surgery in our clean and comfortable private hospitals.

I completed my orthopaedic training on the prestigious Percival Pott training program in London. I was awarded the AO trauma fellowship and Bruce Bailey hand Fellowship to visit two centres of excellence in Hand Surgery: The Indiana Hand To Shoulder Centre USA and the Ganga Hospital in India.

This was followed by visiting fellowships at The Institut Kaplan in Barcelona and The Institute de la Main in Paris to learn from the experts in open and arthroscopic wrist surgery. I completed my sub specialty training in hand surgery with a years fellowship at the renowned Pulvertaft Hand Unit in Derby.

After six months as a Consultant in Chesterfield Hospital, I was appointed as a full time Hand and Wrist Surgeon at Barking Havering and Redbridge NHS Trust.

I believe in delivering a personalised patient care experience rather than a simple delivery of service. My service is based on the values of compassion, commitment and accountability.

I am particularly interested in arthritis of the wrist and hand, carpal tunnel syndrome, trigger fingers, fractures of the hand and wrist, Dupuytrens disease, key hole surgery of the wrist, joint replacement and tendinitis.
