Upon graduating from Trinity College Dublin medical school in 1981 Mr Ciaran Healy gained experience in a range of surgical specialities prior to commencing training as a Plastic Surgeon. After initially working in Burns and Plastic Surgery Units in South Wales, Bristol and London, he spent two years in full-time research into nerve injuries at the Middlesex Hospital Institute of Neurological Studies. This led to a prize-winning project for which Mr Healy was awarded a Medical Doctorate.
Recommencing Plastic Surgical training at Addenbrooke's Hospital, he was appointed as a Tutor in Anatomy at Gonville and Caius College Cambridge. Mr Healy completed his training across London hospitals including Mount Vernon, UCLH, Great Ormond Street, The Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital in Stanmore and The Hand Clinic at Windsor. Since joining St Thomas' Hospital in 1996 as a Consultant Plastic Surgeon, Mr Healy has continued his professional training by attending meetings and courses and visiting other specialists in their units at home and abroad.
Mr Healy"s current practice at the Wellington Hospital includes Cosmetic Surgery of the nose (rhinoplasty) and face (endoscopic brow lift, Coleman fat injection to the cheek and lips, face and neck lift etc), breast enlargement and reduction, tummy tuck, liposuction and post obesity correction.
As Plastic Surgeon to the Melanoma and Facial Skin Cancer teams at St Thomas" Hospital, Mr Healy uses Cosmetic surgery techniques while repairing the damage caused by cancer, particularly to the nose and face. Mr Healy's interest in peripheral nerve injury continues as he runs hand surgery clinics at both the Wellington and St Thomas's Hospitals. Mr Healy performs carpal tunnel decompressions, Dupuytrens contracture release and general hand surgery procedures.
I have worked with Mr Healy at the Wellington for several years and found him to be an excellent colleague. He is able to see my patients within minutes and is usually able to offer surgery the same day. His surgical skills and written communication are exemplary.
