Mr Jeremy Granville-Chapman

Mr Granville-Chapman is a Consultant Upper Limb Surgeon at Frimley Health NHS Foundation Trust (Heatherwood and Wexham Park Hospitals).  After 21 years’ service in the Armed Forces Medical Corps, he retired in Dec 2019 as a Lieutenant Colonel.  His elective practice focuses exclusively on the upper limb.  His trauma practice covers all aspects of Orthopaedic limb trauma.

Mr Granville-Chapman qualified with a distinction from St Bartholomew’s and The Royal London medical school in 2001.  In 2003 he completed Medical Officer training (Sandhurst Royal Military Academy) and, in doing so, came top in the order of merit for the year. He then joined the Royal Scots Dragoon Guards in Germany for two years as their Regimental Medical Officer before returning to the UK in 2005 to commence surgical training.  

Basic surgical training led to Mr Granville-Chapman gaining MRCS (junior surgical exams), after which he spent a year undertaking research into resuscitation strategies following military wounding, for which he was awarded a Doctorate of Medicine (MD) degree.  

Since 2005, Jeremy has deployed twice to Iraq and twice to Afghanistan.  He also spent two months co-ordinating the care of our repatriated wounded in Birmingham.  

Specialist Orthopaedic training was undertaken in the London (South West Thames) region.  Jeremy sat his Orthopaedic Consultant exams (FRCS Tr&Orth) in 2013 and won the Sir Walter Mercer Gold Medal for the top performance nationwide.  In 2014 he was appointed the British Orthopaedic Association’s Young Ambassador to the Hong Kong Orthopaedic Association. Towards the end of training, he secured a prestigious Upper Limb Surgery fellowship at the internationally-renowned Wrightington hospital.  During this fellowship Jeremy worked with leading surgeons in the fields of sports shoulder surgery, complex joint replacement surgery and elbow surgery.  This was followed by a further 8 months of fellowship training in Brighton, focussing on complex trauma surgery.

In 2015 Jeremy was awarded the Ram Kumar Chatterjee BOA Travelling Fellowship. This enabled him to visit eminent surgeons in both trauma surgery and sports surgery at Massachusetts General Hospital and the Naval Medical Center in San Diego: both places are internationally recognised as centres of excellence.

Mr Granville-Chapman has published several articles in peer-reviewed scientific journals and has presented at learned meetings, both internationally (USA, Hong Kong, Europe) and nationally. In 2009, he won the prize for the best presentation at the British Trauma Society Annual Congress. Alongside routine clinical work, Jeremy is a keen educator and regularly teaches other doctors and surgeons on Advanced Trauma Life Support, shoulder arthroscopy and fellowship exam preparation courses.

Jeremy is married to Katy, a teacher at Wellington College and has two young sons.  He enjoys most sports, particularly golf and skiing.  He is a member of the British Orthopaedic Association, The British Elbow and Shoulder Surgery Society, the Combined Services Orthopaedic Society and the Old Etonian Medical Society.
