An expert in treating the entire spectrum of hand, wrist and elbow disorders, Mr Simon Wimsey MBChB MRCS FRCS (Tr & Orth) practises out of his clinic, The Wimsey Hand Clinic, and also holds the post of Consultant Trauma & Orthopaedic Surgeon, Princess Alexandra Hospital NHS Trust in Harlow.

Working across Essex, Hertfordshire and Middlesex as well as Central London, Mr Wimsey adopts a wholly patient-centred approach. His aim is always to return his patients to health as speedily as possible, minimising any disruption to their normal lives.

After qualifying from Bristol University Medical School in 2000, he went on to complete his surgical training in Wessex. Two prestigious fellowships followed: one in France and one in Australia. Firstly, he studied complex upper limb trauma treatment techniques on an AO Trauma Fellowship in Grenoble in 2009, before spending six months in 2012 on an Upper Limb Sports Medicine Fellowship in Perth, Australia, where he treated top sports people and furthered his knowledge of endoscopic peripheral nerve surgery. This was followed by a further six months on a Microsurgery Fellowship at Royal North Shore Hospital in Sydney.

He carries out around 700 operations and sees 3,200 patients annually. His upper limb expertise extends to conditions needing specialist grafting of bone, tendon, arterial or nerve and the microscopic equipment he frequently uses allows him to treat the tiny key components of the elbow, hand, and wrist with painstaking care.

Mr Wimsey will only carry out surgery when it is absolutely necessary and consequently more than three-quarters of his patients are treated non-operatively either through physiotherapy, splinting, warm wax baths, ultrasound therapy and shockwave therapy. Steroids may also be used to provide temporary relief or a permanent solution. Some patients will ultimately need to undergo arthroscopic or open surgery, but only where it offers the best outcome.
