About

  • Biography icon plus

    Mr Thomas Routledge attended medical schools at Cambridge and then Oxford Universities, where he won scholarships in medical science. Following this, his initial surgical education was in London, followed by five years at Papworth Hospital, Cambridge, which is a national specialist training centre in chest surgery. He trained in both cardiac and thoracic surgery, and was awarded medals by The Royal College of Surgeons’ for excellence as a trainee surgeon.

    Pursuing a particular interest in treating cancers with surgery, Mr Routledge then studied for a year at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York, one of the world’s acknowledged leaders in cancer operations. Here he learned a number of advanced techniques in treating lung cancer and mesothelioma, to bring back to my consultant practice in the UK.

    He is an NHS consultant at Guy’s Hospital in London, providing specialist services to South East London and Sussex.
