Mr Matthew Dodd is an NHS consultant who also works at Sancta Maria Hospital in Swansea. His main field is orthopaedics.

Description

Mr Matthew Dodd studied at Imperial College School of Medicine before completing his post-graduate training in West London’s basic and higher surgical training programmes. Mr Dodd is a member of the faculty of sports and exercise medicine and completed the diploma in 2005, winning the Donald McCleod medal for first in year. In 2011/2012 his fellowships were at the University of Toronto, Canada, exclusively specialising in lower limb arthroplasty and soft tissue knee surgery, training under some of their leading surgeons. On completion of this training he returned to Imperial College NHS Trust, one of only four Level 1 trauma centres in London, for a six month trauma fellowship to round off his training in all areas of specialist interest. Mr Dodd specialises in hip and knee surgery, specifically joint replacement, sports injuries and arthroscopic surgery. He performs primary and revision joint replacement of the hip and knee, including partial knee replacement and peri-articular osteotomy, knee arthroscopy, meniscal surgery and ACL reconstruction. Mr Dodd took up his fulltime post as consultant orthopaedic and trauma surgeon at Morriston Hospital in April 2013, with outpatient clinics in Singleton and Morriston Hospitals, together with operating at Neath, Port Talbot Hospital. He found his time in Canada a life-changing experience, combining university and city life with the rugged outdoors, which underpinned some of the reasons for he and his family moving back to the South Wales area, to enjoy a better pace and quality of life. Mr Dodd enjoys skiing and sailing, but says that sadly he hung up his rugby boots a number of years ago.
