Professional Profile

Mr Dunnet completed his basic medical training at Cambridge University Medical School and Guy’s Hospital.  His interest in knee surgery developed during general training at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital, Stanmore and King’s College Hospital, London.

 

After Mr Dunnet finished his general orthopaedic training he spent one year in Australia studying at the Institute of Orthopaedics in Melbourne and the North Sydney Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine Centre; both units specialised in reconstructive and replacement surgery of the knee. Working with the premiership Australian Rules, players gave him insight into the special demands of the elite athlete.

 

Mr Dunnet completed his training in the Hand unit at the Queen Victoria Hospital, East Grinstead.  The Queen Victoria hospital is renowned for the pioneering work performed upon the World War 2 fighter pilots (the Guinea Pig club).

 

Mr Dunnet values the importance of ensuring that every patient feels relaxed and at ease during the consultation.  He gives sufficient time to every patient to ensure they understand their orthopaedic condition and can make an informed contribution to the successful management of their condition.

Personal Profile

Enthusiastic supporter of his children’s efforts in the sporting arena as his own athletic pursuits have somewhat diminished with the passing of the years.

This is the second time I have been treated by Mr Dunnet and he was very reassuring.

Very pleasant guy, very clever person.

I was very pleased with how Mr Dunnet explained everything and took time to answer my questions. He has done a wonderful job in giving me back my mobility and I would have every confidence in him carrying out future operations or treatments for me.
