About me

Mr Edward Powell-Smith qualified from the University College London Medical School in 2000, before completing his basic surgical training on the South Coast. He undertook his higher orthopaedic surgical training in Wessex, during which time he developed a subspecialty interest in hand and wrist surgery.
As a senior trainee he undertook fellowships in both orthopaedic and plastic hand and wrist surgery at the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital and St Andrews Centre for plastic surgery.
Following his fellowship training Mr Powell-Smith had developed particular skill and interest in the management of complex hand trauma and soft tissue injury. As well as arthritic conditions of the hand and finger joint replacements which combine plastic surgery and orthopaedic experience.
