Mr Mark Broadbent
Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon
MBChB, FRCS (Tr&Orth), Diploma in Hand Surgery (BSSH)
Practices at: BMI Ross Hall Hospital
The next 5 years were spent as a Specialist Registrar on the North of Scotland Trauma and Orthopaedic Rotation. In 2007 he passed the Intercollegiate Trauma and Orthopaedic Exam and became a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh.
In July 2008 he took up post as an Advanced Hand Trainee, appointed by the Interface Group in Hand Surgery, in Oxford working with internationally known hand surgeons Peter Burge, Henk Geile, Ian Mcnab, Paul Critchley and Chris Little. From January 2009 to October 2009, he took a further Interface appointed Advanced Hand Training Post, at Wrightington Hospital, working with Internationally known surgeons Professor John Stanley, Ian Trail, Mike Hayton and Professor Raj Murali. This has developed his interest in small joint arthroplasty in the hand and wrist, with a national expertise in this area.
Mr Broadbent is now an established Hand and Upper Limb Surgeon in the West of Scotland. His current NHS practice is at Inverclyde Royal Hospital (IRH) where he manages patients from his local area, but also receives tertiary and out-of-area referrals. He is currently the Orthopaedic Lead at IRH. Since 2009, he has established clinics at Ross Hall Hospital.
Mr Broadbent remains actively involved in teaching and research, with established involvement in the Edinburgh Hand Course, and the treatment of Dupuytren’s disease with Collagenase (Xiapex). He also has an interest in “Wide awake” surgery (WALANT – Wide awake, local anaesthetic, no tourniquet). This allows patients to remain awake, when undertaking upper limb and hand surgeries (although sedation can be used if patients are anxious). He also works with a few very experienced anaesthetists who can perform upper limb blocks. Both these types of anaesthetics remove the need for a general anaesthetic, decrease the risks around surgery, and allow for a shorter, and more pleasant admission.
Mr Broadbent also has a specialist interest in medicolegal work, with over 10 years of experience Nationally. However, since 2020, Mr Broadbent has taken up the role as a Governor at the Expert Witness Institute, with a view to promote training and excellence in medicolegal industry, across the UK.
