Mr. Richard. G. Dias

Richard Dias developed an interest in Hand and Upper Limb Surgery very early in his career while doing Plastic Surgery as an Intern in 1990. After his basic surgical training he completed his Specialist Training on the Birmingham Orthopaedic Training Programme. He went on to do a Hand Fellowship at the Pulvertaft Hand Centre under the mentorship of Professor Frank Burke, followed by an Upper Limb Fellowship and finally took up post as a Consultant Orthopaedic Hand and Upper Limb Surgeon in Wolverhampton.

During his hand fellowship he had the opportunity to work with Professor F Burke and Dr M. Garcia-Elias, both of whom are internationally renowned for their contributions to the development of hand and wrist surgery.

As a consultant he continuously attempts to update his knowledge and techniques thereby giving the best possible care to his patients. As a consultant he has travelled around Europe to learn and evaluate new techniques in hand and upper limb surgery, that he could offer his patients. As a visiting surgeon he has spent time with Dr S O’Driscoll(elbow surgery) at Mayo Clinic, Rochester, USA, Professor O Levy (shoulder surgery) at the Reading Shoulder Unit and Professor Lennard Funk (shoulder surgery) in Manchester.

He is an Honorary Senior Lecturer, University of Birmingham,UK and the Clinical Lead for orthopaedic undergraduate education at his institution. He also mentors physiotherapists for their MSc degree.He is very involved in teaching and education and participates as faculty in undergraduate and postgraduate courses.

He is a perfectionist by nature and tailor-makes his treatment and rehabilitation to his patients needs so as to give them the best possible outcome. This becomes increasingly important in the treatment and rehabilitation of elite athletes where their sporting requirements and training schedules demand an accelerated phase of rehabilitation following surgery.
