Jagdeep Nanchahal is Professor of Hand, Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at the University of Oxford. He read medicine in London, undertook his early surgical training in the UK, followed by fellowships in hand and microsurgery in Australia and the USA.
He has a specialist interest in reconstructive surgery of the hand and lower limb and believes passionately in providing the highest standards of care via an evidence-based approach. He was the only plastic surgeon on the NICE Guidance Development Groups for complex fractures and non-complex fractures.
He led the group that wrote the Standards for the Management of Open Fractures of the Lower Limb on behalf of the British Plastic and Orthopaedic Associations, published in 2009. This is an open source guidance to facilitate the care of patients with these severe injuries.
Jagdeep was awarded his PhD as a medical student and his scientific background has facilitated his development of innovative therapeutics based on unravelling molecular pathways underlying common surgical conditions to identify novel targets. By systematically studying the signalling pathways involved in the pathogenesis of Dupuytren’s disease, his group identified TNF as a novel therapeutic target and he is chief investigator for a phase II trial funded by the Health Innovation Challenge Fund (Department of Health + Wellcome Trust) to assess the efficacy of anti-TNF in patients with early Dupuytren’s disease.
Jagdeep has over 20 years' experience of providing reports relating to personal injury and clinical negligence.
He has lectured on several occasions at meetings organised by the AvMA and for the Skeleton series at 7 Bedford Row chambers.
He has a deep understanding of the legal process and his reports are always objective, clear and evidence-based.
He is able to see clients usually within 3 weeks of receiving all the relevant medical records and return the report within 5 working days. He responds to requests promptly and is able to work to close deadlines.
