Each speciality is managed by an experienced clinical lead and a dedicated account manager

Our fellowship-trained consultants specialise in the complete spectrum of Reconstructive Plastic Surgery, ranging from local anaesthetic skin cancer reconstruction using flaps and grafts, to major reconstruction of upper and lower limb pathology, as well as free-tissue transfer for a plethora of conditions including breast reconstruction. Moreover, we take care of everything, from pre-operative work-up, post-operative monitoring and follow-up once patients are discharged.

Specialising in ‘see and treat’ clinics for 2 week-wait cancer patients, as well as general skin conditions, we cover the breadth of dermatology for both adult and paediatric patients. We compress treatment pathways so that patients are seen and diagnosed by a consultant dermatologist, and then operated on by a consultant plastic surgeon in the same clinic visit. In addition, we process histology results in 24-72 hours depending on the complexity of the specimen, and our clinical leads’ attendance at Trust MDTs is mandatory. Our clinics epitomise efficiency in healthcare with a GIRFT-aligned operating model.

Our high-volume cataract lists deliver a minimum of 25 cataracts per theatre per day by streamlining clinical pathways, optimising patient flow and having experienced theatre and surgical teams working harmoniously. We also carry out complex oculoplastic reconstruction for ptosis, tumours and facial palsy, using only oculoplastic fellowship-trained consultants.

We manage pain holistically utilising our MDT, comprising of consultants in pain medicine, psychologists, therapists, and support staff. Whether it is therapy-related treatment, or an intervention using injections or radio-frequency ablation, every patient receives a consultant-led and delivered treatment plan with the follow up required to ensure optimal outcomes.

We have experts in both upper and lower GI surgery, as well as in bariatric surgery, abdominal wall reconstruction and robotics. Our clinical teams have a strong academic foundation, and have been instrumental in developing the use of robotic surgery for both day case surgery and for more complex pathology in their respective NHS Trusts. Many of our consultants sit on various MDT panels and are National and International authorities in their respective subspecialty area.

Orthopaedic Surgery

Utilising prehabilitation to optimise patients prior to arthroplasty, we are able to reliably predict and reduce in-patient stays and get patients mobile immediately post-op. Our surgeons specialise in high-volume arthroplasty for hips and knees, as well day-case surgery, and have decades of experience between them to deliver GIRFT-aligned exceptional orthopaedic care, recording all surgical procedures and outcomes on the NJR.

Vascular Surgery

Our surgeons specialise in local anaesthetic varicose vein surgery, and have pioneered high-volume pathways at their base hospitals as well as in Trusts further afield. In addition to day case surgery, we have the expertise to carry out complex bypass surgery for lower limb vasculopathies and intermittent claudication, working alongside the local surgical and diagnostic teams in NHS Trusts.

Hand & Wrist Surgery

Our surgeons have pioneered use of techniques such as WALANT and are able to carry out the majority of hand surgery with patients awake. Not only does this reduce hospital admissions, but it also engages patients with ‘Day -zero’ rehabilitation, optimising results and improving functional outcomes of surgery. All our surgeons have hand fellowships, are holders of the prestigious Hand Diploma, and are experienced in conditions ranging from carpal tunnel syndrome and Dupuytren’s disease, through to base of thumb OA and soft tissue reconstruction of the hand and wrist.

Ear, Nose & Throat

Ranging from day-case adult and paediatric procedures, to complex head and neck reconstruction, our fellowship-trained consultants manage the complete patient pathway and integrate into the Trust MDT. Our sub-specialties include head and neck cancer, rhinology, otology and laryngology, and we work alongside Trust consultants and specialist nurses to ensure patient care is seamless.

Other Specialties

The aforementioned list is not exhaustive, and we have the necessary clinical experience to deliver projects in the following clinical specialities both for interventions and for outpatient clinics: urology, endoscopy, radiology, respiratory, cardiology and gynaecology.

Questions & Answers

Here are some frequently asked questions. If you have any other questions - please get in touch.

No. TSC prides itself on not cherry-picking the surgical cases we undertake thereby leaving the trust with a legacy of difficult surgery. We offer local, regional and general anaesthetic surgical services. We only ever undertake GA surgery when absolutely required and our experienced surgeons are able to safely perform many procedures under RA or LA that would traditionally been undertaken under GA. There are, however, certain patients that are not suitable to be safely operated on a weekend day. We will make the trust aware of the exclusion citeria and the patients will be triaged ahead of time to ensure safety.

Yes. Where pre-assessments are required, TSC will undertake them. We aspire to own the as much of the pathway as possible.

We have a dedicated Clinical Nurse Specialist telephone line that is monitored 7 days a week. Patients are informed of this number on an information leaflet provided to them post surgery. We also operate wound review clinics and telephonically contact patients after a period of time post surgery. Any complications are addressed by TSC.
