Mrs Lisa Leonard
Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon
MB ChB, FRCS (T&O)
I was born in Leicestershire and have lived in most areas of the country over the years. I trained at Cambridge University and then in Birmingham, Newcastle, Swindon, Bath, Oxford and Seattle. During my clinical training I was awarded a research fellowship from the Royal College of Surgeons allowing me to undertake a year of full time research culminating in the award of an MSc in Orthopaedic Engineering from Cardiff University.
My MSc thesis concerned the kinematics of wrist replacement surgery. I obtained the Fellowship of the Royal College of Surgeons with a special interest in Orthopaedic and Trauma surgery in 2004 and then went on to further subspecialty training in Hand Surgery in Oxford and Trauma Surgery in Seattle. After six months as a locum consultant in Reading I took up post in Brighton in July 2006.
Since working in Brighton, I have helped to introduce an electronic system to manage trauma services and has re-organised hand trauma provision to provide a consultant led service to patients across the region. The recently-launched Sussex Hand Surgery website provides patient centred information on all aspects of the care that I, and my other hand surgery colleagues, undertake.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mrs Lisa Leonard at Spire include:
Hand and Wrist Surgery: Orthopaedic surgery: Wrist surgery, Hand Surgery.
Royal College of Surgeons of England
British Society for Surgery of the Hand
British Orthopaedic Research Society
British Orthopaedic Association
Chief of Surgery, Brighton and Sussex University Hospitals NHS Trust
I am married to a Consultant Physician who works in Hastings and Eastbourne. We are both kept on their toes by our three lively boys who are great fun. I feel a healthy body contributes to a balanced life and try to keep fit with jogging and cycling. More recently I have taken up hockey at a local club. These help to offset the effects of consuming my husband’s excellent culinary offerings.
