About the Hand Unit

The Hand Unit at Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham (QEHB) is one of the largest in the country. With the addition of the elective care provided at the Royal Orthopaedic Hospital (ROH), it provides a comprehensive service to treat all conditions of the adult hand.

At the heart of the unit there are  five orthopaedic and four plastic surgery consultant hand surgeons. 

In addition we have:

  • one hand surgery specialty doctor
  • six hand surgery fellows
  • two orthopaedic registrars
  • a team of allied health professionals

Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham

QEHB is the main centre for hand trauma in Birmingham and not only deals with simple hand injuries but is also the regional centre for digital and hand replantation following amputation, the regional Major Trauma Centre (MTC) and the national centre for repatriated injured military patients who often have very complex explosion injures to their hands.

The Royal Orthopaedic Hospital

The ROH is an elective hospital to the south of Birmingham city centre at which we cover the majority of elective hand surgery treatments, including the newly licensed Xiapex™ collagenase injection for Dupuytren’s contracture.

Allied health professionals

We work closely with a number of other health specialists to provide optimal patient care, including anaesthetists and anaesthetic physicians' assistants, hand therapists, theatre staff, nursing staff, radiologists and neurophysiologists.
