Mr Ragbir was born in Trinidad and attended medical school at the University of the West Indies in Kingston, Jamaica. He began his surgical training in Trinidad and subsequently trained in multiple UK plastic surgery departments including Swansea, Exeter and Newcastle upon Tyne. He took up his current consultant post in Newcastle Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust in 2006, following working as a Consultant in the Caribbean.
His NHS practice has been tailored to looking after patients requiring the highest level of reconstructive expertise. The majority of his current work is with head and neck reconstruction and sarcoma (bone and soft tissue cancers), excision and reconstruction, for which his work is internationally recognised. This level of plastic surgical reconstruction demands a high level of skill and familiarity with operating in all areas of the body.
He takes an active role in the wider world of plastic surgery and education, both locally and nationally. He is currently the lead clinician for the bone and soft tissue tumour service for the north of England, which sees patients referred with rare tumours from across the northern region. He has been training programme director for plastic surgery training in the North-East for a period of 8 years and his contribution to maintaining high standards of training was recognised when he was made Chair of the Specialist Advisory Commitee for UK plastic surgery in 2018.
He is a regular examiner for the plastic surgery consultant examinations and is in charge of national selection for plastic surgical training in the UK.
His private practice started in 2006 and he has been providing high quality care for patients with a wide variety of needs. He is a member of BAAPS and BAPRAS.
