He specialises in upper limb orthopaedics and brings a wealth of expertise in complex shoulder, collarbone, wrist and elbow injuries as well as soft tissue conditions and trauma of the hand. Mr Owen-Johnstone is also an expert in minimally invasive or ‘keyhole’ surgery.
Having studied medicine at the University of Leicester, Mr Owen-Johnstone became a junior surgeon at the Norfolk and Norwich Hospital and continued his higher surgical training at Barts taking him to the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital and Great Ormond Street on rotation. He became a Consultant Trauma and Orthopaedic Surgeon at St Bartholomews and The Royal London in 2004 working on multiple major injuries brought by the Helicopter Emergency Medical Service. In addition, he was Orthopaedic Lead Clinician before leaving the NHS in 2011 to work solely in the private sector. Mr Owen-Johnstone has built up a prominent reputation through his experience within London teaching hospitals in the NHS and his work with the Emergency Medical Services as well as pioneering minimally invasive surgery of the upper limb.
Simon Owen-Johnstone comments: “I have been an independent surgeon for ten years, so it was a big change for me to decide to join a group. There are several orthopaedic groups in London, but TLOC’s continued development whilst remaining a friendly and approachable group appealed to me. I am looking forward hugely to being part of such a professional and forward-looking organisation.”
