MA, BM BCh, FRCS (Ed), FRCS (Orth)
I undertook my surgical training in Leeds, Newcastle, Copenhagen and Oxford after which I was appointed Consultant Orthopaedic and Hand Surgeon to Sunderland Royal Hospital in 1999.
My areas of particular expertise are hand, upper limb and general trauma conditions. I have further special interests in disorders of the wrist, overuse syndromes, WRULD and rheumatoid hand disease.
I can see children for consultations only at Spire Washington Hospital.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Les Irwin at Spire include:
Orthopaedics - elbow and shoulder
Orthopaedics - hand and wrist
Spire Washington 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.
