Miss Alexandra Crick MBBS MD FRCS (Plast)

Odstock Centre for Burns, Plastic and Maxillofacial Surgery
Salisbury NHS FoundationTrust.

Alex qualified from St Thomas’ Hospital Medical School in 1992. As a Wellcome Trust Fellow, she completed her MD research in the developmental biology of congenital limb malformations at the University of Oxford in 2002. Following her plastic surgical training within the Wessex and Oxford region, she went on to complete a Hand Fellowship at the John Radcliffe Hospital and Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre, Oxford in 2007, before being appointed Consultant Plastic and Reconstructive surgeon at Salisbury NHS Foundation Trust in 2008. Alex’s principal interest is microsurgical limb reconstruction following trauma, working with colleagues in both Salisbury and Southampton to develop the orthoplastic service for the Major Trauma Centre. With Neal Jacobs and Rob Boyd, she has developed the orthoplastic service for secondary reconstruction of lower limb problems, including bone sepsis, mal-union and non-union. With Rod Dunn, she developed a secondary reconstructive service for military patients with limb injuries acquired during service, including blast injuries sustained during the Afghanistan conflict. Alex has a particular interest in amputation and reconstruction of the residual limb for these patients and for civilian patients, via the prosthetic centres at Portsmouth and Bournemouth.
