About me

Philippa Rust FRCS specialised in hand and wrist surgery early in her career, struck by the intricacy of the anatomy and the importance of the function to her patients’ daily lives. She is now a highly qualified hand and wrist surgeon, performing all related Orthopaedic and Plastic Surgery.
Philippa trained in London as an Orthopaedic surgeon, specialising in hand and wrist surgery, and completed a Plastic hand surgery fellowship at the Windsor Hand Clinic, Berkshire. She was also one of the first group to attain British Society for Surgery of the Hand Diploma of Hand Surgery.
Philippa then headed to Australia to complete fellowships in Plastic microsurgery for the hand (Bernard O’Brien Institute, Melbourne) and in upper limb complex trauma and reconstruction (Princess Alexandra Hospital, Brisbane).
In Australia she gained expertise in surgical advances which reduce recovery time, including wrist arthroscopy. She is one of a few surgeons in Scotland performing this keyhole surgery.
Since 2010 Philippa has worked as a Consultant in Edinburgh, at the Plastic Surgery unit of St John’s Hospital, Livingston, and her practice is solely hand and wrist surgery.
