Mr Martin Chamberlain
Consultant Thoracic Surgeon
MB ChB, FRCS (C-Th)
I undertook my undergraduate medical training at the University of Bristol, qualifying in 1993. After teaching anatomy at the University of Birmingham I spent time in Oxford and at Papworth Hospital in Cambridge before returning to Bristol for a period of research. My registrar training was shared between Leicester, Sheffield and Nottingham during which time I gained my FRCS(C-Th) and specialist recognition in Thoracic Surgery.
I commenced my current post as Consultant Thoracic Surgeon at Southampton General Hospital in June 2010. I perform all aspects of adult thoracic surgery excluding oesophageal surgery and undertake close to 300 operations a year. I perform both VATS (Video Assisted Thoracoscopic Surgery) and Open surgery.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Martin Chamberlain at Spire include:
Lung Cancer Surgery, Pneumothorax, Pleurac Disorders, Lung Biopsy, Chest Wall Deformity, All Adult Thoracic Surgery, Fixation of Fractured Ribs.
Spire Southampton 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.
I am married and the proud father of two sons. I am a sports enthusiast and distance runner when time allows!
