Mr Charles Pailthorpe
Consultant Trauma and Orthopaedic Surgeon
FRCS Ed, MBChB
Practices at: Circle Reading Hospital
He qualified from Birmingham Medical School, having joined the Royal Army Medical Corps as a student.
He had a variety of postings in military hospitals in England, West Germany and Hong Kong and had tours to Northern Ireland, West Germany, Belize, the Falklands and Nepal. While in Northern Ireland he was mentioned in dispatches. He later served in the First Gulf War.
His training in trauma and orthopaedic surgery involved experience in military hospitals and also two years in the NHS in Oxford. He started his consultant career at the Cambridge Military Hospital in Aldershot in 1992 but left the Services in 1995 to take up his current post at the Royal Berkshire Hospital NHS Trust.
His military career inevitably involved a large experience in traumatic injuries, but his elective interest in orthopaedic conditions has always been in the upper limb.
He is designing a wrist replacement in collaboration with an American company.
He is the Chairman of a joint committee between the BSSH and the British Orthopaedic Association (BOA) to produce best practice guidelines for 'The management of distal radial fractures'.
