About

Professor Furniss trained in Plastic and Reconstructive surgery in the Oxford Deanery. He undertook fellowship training in microsurgery and hand surgery at the Ganga Hospital, Coimbatore, and at the University of Tokyo, Japan. In 2013, he was appointed Consultant Plastic Surgeon at Oxford University NHS Trust. He also has a major commitment to research at Oxford University.

The surgical treatment of lymphoedema has undergone a renaissance in recent years as refinements in supermicrosurgical instruments and techniques have opened the field to innovation. Professor Furniss has pioneered the use of supermicrosurgery to treat lymphoedema in the UK. Together with his colleague Mr Alex Ramsden, he has trained in Japan with the inventor of the technique, Professor Isao Koshima. He then brought this minimally invasive procedure back to the UK, and has performed more of these procedures than any other UK surgeon. This experience is coupled with meticulous analysis of patient outcomes.
