Mr Stone completed his training in 2017 after spending seven years in Edinburgh and his final year on an orthoplastic interface fellowship in hand surgery at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham. Following the completion of this, he was then successful in his application for the internationally renowned Dandenong hand surgery fellowship in Melbourne Australia.
During these two years of fellowships, he mastered skills in hand and wrist surgery with broad exposure to the management of complex conditions including microsurgery, arthroplasty, keyhole surgery and major limb trauma.
Mr Stone has successfully completed the British diploma in hand surgery and is now a tutor for the diploma. He is an active member of the British Society for Surgery of the Hand. He is actively engaged in research and has published several articles in peer-reviewed journals. He is currently leading large quality improvement projects at the Royal Devon and Exeter hospital.
Mr Stone has a special interest in peripheral nerve surgery, Dupuytrens disease, hand and wrist trauma and arthritis of the hand and wrist including joint replacement surgery.
