Mr Fagg is a consultant orthopaedic surgeon specialising shoulder and elbow surgery. He was appointed as a consultant orthopaedic surgeon at the Royal United Hospital in Bath in 2019. He took up the post in July 2020, after returning from a year’s further specialist training in New Zealand.

He completed his undergraduate studies in Leicester before completing his basic surgical training in South Yorkshire. He then received orthopaedic registrar training in two of the most respected regions of the country, South Yorkshire and the Severn region.

He obtained a very broad and deep grounding in all aspects of orthopaedics at hospitals such as the Northern General Hospital, Southmead Hospital, the Great Western Hospital and the Royal United Hospital in Bath. In addition, he trained at the Sheffield Children’s Hospital and the Bristol Royal Hospital for Children. He was awarded the Arthur Edward Burton Memorial Prize for obtaining the highest mark in the country in the orthopaedic fellowship exam (part one).

In 2019/2020 Mr Fagg and his family travelled to New Zealand where he received further specialist training in sports surgery at the internationally acclaimed UniSports Sports Clinic, and in paediatric orthopaedic surgery at New Zealand’s only specialist children’s hospital, The Starship.

Mr Fagg has published research papers and presented internationally on subjects related to shoulder surgery and children’s orthopaedic surgery.

Outside of work Mr Fagg dedicates his time to his family, including his wife, who is a rheumatologist, and his two young daughters.

Mr Fagg is a full-time Orthopaedic Surgeon at Bath Clinic with a special interest in shoulder surgery, elbow surgery and all aspects of general orthopaedic trauma.
