    Mr Alex Woollard is a Consultant Plastic Surgeon with a sub-specialist focus in nerve regeneration, facial reanimation and microsurgical reconstruction (breast, skin cancer). He is based at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital, Stanmore where he provides lower limb and sarcoma reconstruction. He also performs private work at Lister and Wellington Hospitals. He co-founded ReLimb which offers a complete reconstruction service for amputees including osseo-integration, Targeted Muscle Reinnervation (TMR) and Regenerative Peripheral Nerve Interface (RPNI).

    He graduated in Medicine from Southampton University in 2002 and also received a BSc in History of Medicine from the Wellcome Institute and University College London. He undertook his basic surgery training in London and in 2005 he gained membership of the Royal College of Surgeons of England. In 2015 he became a Fellow and entered the Specialist Register for Plastic Surgery the following year. Following this, he undertook a microsurgical fellowship at the Queen Victoria Hospital in East Grinstead. He was appointed as a consultant at the Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust in 2016. Mr Woolard was awarded a PhD from UCL and Harvard University in 2017, for his research into nerve regeneration.

    Mr Woolard has received a number of awards including the Patton-Masser award from BAPRAS and the Stephan and Anna Galeski fellowship from the RCS, as well as grants from the Anton Jurgens and Roan Trusts. He is actively involved in research into nerve and muscle regeneration and is regularly invited to present his work both nationally and internationally.
