A photo of Mr Ian Lowdon

Mr Ian Lowdon trained in Orthopaedic surgery at Oxford, where he initially developed an interest in Hand surgery.  He spent a year at Duke University in USA, specialising in hand and microsurgery.

He was appointed to Swindon in 1989, initially as a general orthopaedic and trauma surgeon with a special interest in hand and upper limb surgery.

With the expansion in the department over the years, there has been increasing sub-specialisation, and over the last few years, he has restricted his practice to upper limb. He undertakes a wide range of operations, including arthroscopic (key-hole) procedures and minimally invasive techniques such as needle fasciotomies for Dupuytren’s.

He also spent many years involved in hospital management, including being Medical Director of the Swindon and Marlborough NHS Trust when in was first established, for seven years.

His interest in quality and experience have resulted in him being regularly invited to undertake reviews for the Department of Health and the Health service Ombudsman.
