    About

    Mr Sam Gidwani is a Consultant Hand and Wrist surgeon, based at Guy's & St Thomas' Hospitals, London. His practice is focused entirely on disorders and injuries of the hand, wrist and forearm. He regularly treats musicians, as well as professional and amateur sportsmen and women, and was one of the surgeons dealing with athletes’ hand and wrist injuries during the 2012 London Olympics.

    Mr Gidwani completed his orthopaedic training in 2006, and obtained his Fellowship of the Royal College of Surgeons (Trauma & Orthopaedics). He then spent two years in further training at specialist hand and wrist centres including the Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre in Oxford, the Pulvertaft Hand Centre in Derby, and the Princess Alexandra Hospital in Brisbane, Australia. This period of training culminated in the award of the British Hand Surgery Diploma. He began his consultant career at Guy's & St Thomas' in 2009. Between 2014 and 2017, he was the Clinical Lead of the Guy's Orthopaedic Department, one of the largest and busiest units in London.

    As well as being a busy clinician, Mr Gidwani is actively involved in the training of junior surgeons: he serves on the British Hand Surgery Society’s Instructional Course Committee, and is co-founder and convener of the St Thomas’ cadaveric hand trauma course. He keeps his own knowledge and skills up-to-date by regular attendance at national and international conferences, whether as a delegate or member of the teaching faculty. His research interests include the treatment of scaphoid fractures, and the use of joint replacement in the hand and wrist.
