Personal 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.

Following his general orthopaedic training, he spent a year in Australia studying at the Institute of Orthopaedics in Melbourne and the North Sydney Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine Centre which specialise 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 which is renowned for the pioneering work performed upon the World War II fighter pilots (the Guinea Pig club).

He 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.

Mr Dunnet is an 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. He is addicted to Vibe Cycle exercise classes.
