Mr Thomas Routledge attended medical schools at Cambridge and then Oxford Universities, where he won scholarships in medical science. His surgical training was in Cambridge , London and New York. He was appointed as a Consultant in Thoracic Surgery at Guy’s and St Thomas’ Hospitals in 2007, where he is Chief of Thoracic Surgery.  He is currently the senior thoracic surgeon at HCA London Bridge and helps led their lung cancer multi disciplinary team.

He has been at the forefront of developing minimally in robotic minimally invasive surgery working as an advisor and technology developer with Intuitive Surgical and the DaVinci robotic system. He has developed techniques that allow the majority of his patients to benefit from this more precise and also gentler way of doing surgery, widening the applicability of this technology to a wide range of situations and conditions. Whilst technical surgical excellence is the heart of his approach, Mr Routledge is very much focused on patient experience and support for patients families during the challenging time that surrounds any surgical treatment, and has built a team at London Bridge Hospital and across HCA London to achieve this.
