Alex Ramsden graduated from Glasgow University in 1996. He completed his general surgical training in Newcastle upon Tyne. A two year period of research at the Restoration of Appearance and Function Trust (RAFT) culminated in the award of an MD from the University of London. Mr Ramsden then worked for the British Antarctic Survey and spent a successful year in Antarctica providing medical cover to a large team of scientists. A period of specialist plastic surgical training followed in London and North East England with successful completing of his CCT and FRCS (Plast) fellowship examination.

He studied all aspects of microvascular reconstruction for one year. He has worked as a consultant in the Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre since 2010. Mr Ramsden has a busy practice in all aspects of hand and plastic surgical emergencies, but has a specific interest in bone infection and microvascular reconstruction.
