Mr Ryan Trickett grew up in Dorset before moving to Cardiff to study medicine in 1999. After developing an interest in the hand during his junior surgical jobs, he completed higher orthopaedic training across South Wales in all areas of orthopaedic surgery, but focusing on the hand and wrist.

In 2013 Ryan was appointed to the Advanced Training Post in Hand Surgery at the Queen’s Medical Centre in Nottingham. This prestigious nationally appointed post covers all aspects of hand and wrist surgery, including both orthopaedic and plastic surgical techniques.

He then completed an additional fellowship at the world renowned Pulvertaft Hand Centre, learning advanced techniques in wrist fracture treatment, reconstruction and joint replacement in the hand and wrist.
