Mr Sam Norton

Consultant Plastic, Reconstructive, Hand and Cosmetic Surgeon

MBBS, FRCS Ed (Plast), MSc Aes Plast Surg

"I enjoy working at Spire Norwich Hospital. It provides a friendly and caring environment to patients whilst I too receive great support from the staff."

I have been a Consultant Plastic, Reconstructive, Aesthetic and Hand Surgeon for almost 10 years and have over 20 years of Plastic Surgery experience. I am on the GMC Specialist Register for Plastic Surgery and am Certified in Cosmetic Surgery and Non-surgical procedures by the Royal College of Surgeons.

I specialise in Plastic, Reconstructive, Aesthetic and Hand Surgery with specific interest hand conditions, both adult and paediatric, and lower limb trauma. In my aesthetic practice my main interests are in cosmetic breast (breast augmentation/implant removal and reduction/lifts) and abdominal surgery (abdominoplasty or 'tummy tuck'/liposuction) and non-surgical treatments. I also carry out skin cancer and non-skin cancer cosmetic skin surgery.

To date I have performed thousands of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgical procedures over the last 20 years.

I trained principally in London and the East of England but have also had the benefit of studying and working abroad in both Australia and India. I have a specialist interest in Hand and Paediatric Plastic Surgery in my NHS practice but have broad experience of Plastic and Aesthetic Surgery. As a consequence, I also have a medicolegal practice assisting with personal injury claims.

I am the lead for Plastics Hand Surgery at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital. I was the Service Director for Plastic Surgery at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital between January 2020 and July 2022.

In addition to my clinical work, I am a recognised trainer for the British Society for Surgery of the Hand, an Educational Supervisor for Plastic Surgical trainees and am mentor for students from the Norwich Medical School.

I am your true local surgeon in every sense. My parents hail from Norwich and I grew up in Suffolk.

When I am not working, I enjoy walking, cycling, DIY and photography and spending time with my wife and 2 children (and the dog of course).

The family all love travel and food and if we're not enjoying a different country, we're off exploring Norfolk in our trusty old motorhome.
