Having completed his orthopaedic training and FRCS (Tr&Orth) qualifications in 2006, Sam spent two years working and training in specialist hand and wrist units. This included time at the Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre in Oxford, the Pulvertaft Hand Centre in Derby, and the Princess Alexandra Hospital in Brisbane, Australia. He returned to the Pulvertaft Centre as a locum consultant in 2009 for six months, before moving to Guy’s and St Thomas’ Hospitals, where he has worked since then. In September 2014 he became the Clinical Lead of the Orthopaedic Department, one of the largest and busiest units in London.

In his current role, Mr Gidwani’s practice remains focused on disorders of the hand, wrist and forearm, and in 2011 he was awarded the Postgraduate Diploma in Hand Surgery by the British Society for Surgery of the Hand (BSSH).
