Anna Moon is an experienced Consultant Hand Surgeon who has been based in the Worcestershire and Warwickshire region since 2005. Ms Moon decided to leave the Worcestershire NHS Trust in 2016 to enable her to focus on specialist hand treatment tailored to the needs of the individual.
Ms Moon routinely performs a range of procedures including Xiapex® injection for Dupuytren's contracture, tendon and ligament repair, microsurgical nerve repair, Dupuytren's fasciectomy, carpal tunnel release, bone fixation and wrist arthroscopy.
During her career she trained extensively across Europe with specialists in hand surgery and microsurgery and performed more than one hundred replantations (microsurgical re-attachment of amputated hands and fingers). She wrote her PhD Thesis on microsurgical techniques in hand surgery.
During her eighteen-month sabbatical at a hospital in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, Ms Moon worked with plastic surgeons on complex hand injuries including microsurgery.
Ms Moon has presented and run courses at many national and international forums and published articles in Orthopaedic journals. She regularly attends training courses and conferences to keep up with the latest techniques in hand and wrist surgery and is an advocate of the use of the WALANT technique (Wide Awake Local Anaesthetic No Tourniquet) to give patients a less invasive surgical experience.
