Training & background:

Dominique graduated from Oxford and completed training in plastic surgery in London and Glasgow. She developed an early interest in hand surgery, and completed fellowships at the Hand Unit at the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, and the Windsor Hand Clinic. Since 2006, she has been Lead Hand Consultant of the regional Lothian hand unit in St John’s Hospital, where she deals with all aspects of adult hand and wrist surgery.

Dominique has a strong research background. Her postgraduate research at Oxford University, into the molecular genetics of craniofacial and limb disorders, resulted in a DPhil, and she was awarded a Hunterian Professorship from the Royal College of Surgeons of England. She has published very extensively (hand surgery journals, plastic surgery journals, and scientific journals including The Lancet and Nature Genetics), and has lectured world-wide, particularly on Dupuytren’s disease. Her current research interests include cutting edge development of new treatments for Dupuytren’s disease, and the treatment of thumb-base arthritis.

Dominique’s private practice encompasses all aspects of hand and wrist surgery. She also acts as a medicolegal expert, providing reports for both claimants and insurers, for hand injuries and for medical negligence claims.

Although born in England, of Irish descent, Dominique is married to an Edinburghian and brings up their three children in the tartan tradition. Their house is, however, split during the Six Nations.
