Professor of Hand, Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery

About Professor Nanchahal

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 was a member of the group that wrote the Standards for the Management of Open Fractures published in 2020. This is an open source publication 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.
